The atmosphere was delightful, the service excellent, the presentation lovely, the starter and dessert very good, but the main which was pork was so salty that it was the only flavor that came through. That is why I gave it 4 stars rather than 5.

We were in France for ten days and this was one of the best meals we had. We were looking for another restaurant which was full and La Tortue was on the same street so we decided to try it. It was wonderful. The food was wonderful and the service was great. It is a charming little gem off the... More

Having explored the area we liked the look of the menu and saw Tripadvisor sticker in the window then checked the reviews. Based on the reviews we ate there the following evening and enjoyed a delicious freshly cooked meal. The restaurant was immaculately clean with sparkling glasses on the table and the staff very helpful and friendly. We chose the... More

Went in early September. Nice atmosphere, with room enough between tables, which doesn't happen frequently in a bistro. Nice location, easy to get to. Good food. I'd go again.

Very good food for decent price. Second time we have been and would recommend this restaurant. Waitress speaks a little English, set meals or a la carte gives plenty of choice. Give this one a try

We only had one night in Honfleur but by pure chance we could not have found a better restaurant. We always work on the premise of not eating in the main square, which in Honfleur is the harbour area. So having explored the outer area we came across a restaurant that looked good but next door was La Tortue. We... More

My wife and I dined at La Tortue last night. A wonderful experience all around. Each course was delicious. My soup with oysters and apples was sublime. The duck and sole main dishes were both exceptional and well sized. Its cosy romantic ambiance and friendly service are such a nice change from the crowds and fare at the old port.

La tortue was one of the restaurants recommended by the cottage owners where we were staying. We turned up on spec and luckily they had a table available for 4. I would recommend booking for a weekend trip as the tables filled up quickly. Service was excellent with the waitress speaking excellent English in answer to my poor French questions.... More

Good menus with sensible price points (eg two course options). Enjoyable food, creatively presented. Friendly and thoughtful service. Relaxed atmosphere. Contemporary rustic decor. A great evening!

On our last evening in Honfleur we happened upon “La tortue” almost by chance while wandering around the old town. What a great restaurant! I can only say good things about it. The food and the service were outstanding and quite reasonably priced. The choice is good and you can mix and match from the different menus. We had the... More
