We dined here with a large group (14) including 5 small children. Limited selection for the set menu and no other choices - so not so useful if you have children in your group - we ended up halving an adult portion. The food however was beautiful. A great option of you have a lot of time to chill out,... More

We ate here last week and thought the whole experience was superb. The food was cleverly flavoured and quite subtle. Service was excellent. Overall very good value for money. We had the 31 Euro menu and particularly enjoyed the extra apple soup and cheese courses. Definitely one of the top restaurants in Honfleur.

We ate in some good 'non-touristy' restaurants, away from the 'basin' during our four night stay in Honfleur, but this was by far the best. Great to see simple, beautifully cooked, Normandy food, sourced from local ingredients. We had the three course €31 menu. With a couple of glasses of champagne to start and wine, the bill came to €116... More

Third dinner and always super good food and very nice service. You do not have to wait long before your food is served and still there is no rush if you would like some more time. Good wine choises too.

The food was utterly wonderful, clean tastes, and beautifully presented. Every mouthful was another treat. I would recommend the 7 course menu with all the small palate cleaners, and amuse bouche. Never eaten anywhere better in France.

We usually eat following feedback from Tripadvisor. We missed this treat. We both adored the starters including foie gras, but absolutely loved the duck, for the main course. Worth visiting the restaurant for this alone. Cost around 100 Euros including excellent wine. Not cheap but well worth it

Me and my girlfriend visited this restaurant in july 2014, after seeing the tripadviser reviews. We had not expected that the restaurant was that chique (by services and prices of drinks, coca cola for 5 euros and a glass of wine for 9 euros!). Shocked by the drink prices we just ordered a bottle of water and had the delicious... More

Saw previous review 'Best Vegetarian Meal in France' and wholeheartedly agree. Couldn't fault La Tortue on our visit two weeks ago. Both my husband (meat/fish eater) and myself (vegetarian) both had a fantastic meal with very nice wine, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The waiter was friendly - he was French and when he described the vegetarian menu as 'a... More

We really enjoyed dinner in this small but smart restaurant in scenic Honfleur. There is a variety of 3 course options and a great wine list. The service is efficient and the atmosphere cool and relaxed
