This place is quite simply amazing. My wife and I are still amazed that you can get such and amazing array of servings for such a small amount of money. Every dish served oozes of creativity and quality. Respect!

My sister and I have just returned from a great few days in Rouen, lots of brilliant restaurants to chose from but this was by far the best meal we had whilst in France. The surroundings were lovely, the service was excellent and the food was absolutely gorgeous! A MUST if you are in Rouen.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here and would not hesitate to return. The interior of the restaurant is very nice but on a warm day, it would be nice to dine on the terrace. My meal began spectacularly when the glass cover was lifted from my entree at the table to release fragrant smoke from my hay smoked langoustine in... More

This is a lovely, classic French restaurant in an old timbered building. We were greeted warmly on a chilly, wet evening. After an aperitif, a lobster ravioli amuse-bouche appeared, which was delicious. We chose the gastronomique menu, which was a mistake, only because it was too much to eat! Two fish courses, a meat course and dessert. All of it... More

Small but perfectly formed restaurant near the old market. The food was excellent, the wine wonderful and the staff attentive. The weather was so good that we sat outside in the attractive courtyard but the inside looked inviting too. We opted for a main course and dessert which was just as well as with the amuse bouche and petit fours... More

I read the reviews so we were expecting a lot when we arrived. We were not disappointed. Such a cozy, intimate atmosphere within the traditional style building with a few modern touches. Only about 10 tables inside. The staff was very attentive and tried hard to communicate even if they could not speak English. The food was delicious, fresh with... More

Truly French, this small airy restaurant near the market has again such fresh tasting food that unlike in the USA it seems as if everything has been prepared just for you.

Went to this place on recommendation of Pudlo book, and what a great choice. We ordered 5 course dinner, and you better come hungry my friends, the portions were more then generous and it was so hard to eat all of it. The taste is wonderful, presentation is beautiful and service is super nice. I really enjoyed our dinner, stop... More
