A nice place to discover

Nice restaurant hidden from la place du vieux marché. Overall a good experience. But the chairs are not comfortable. Service is very good and friendly.

This place is the ultimate high end formal old fashioned French restaurant. The food is well presented and very tasty and the service is formal but genuinely friendly. A real treat if you want to sample the best.

We visited this restaurant with friends on a recent trip to Rouen on a warm summer day. As they were not busy, we were offered a choice of table,- inside or out in the delightful garden. We chose to stay cool in the lovely wood-beamed dining room with its air of calm elegance. The service was polite, friendly and not... More

Very nice gourmand dining in the old town. Several menus at dinner (website accurate at the time we went; http://www.lesnympheas-rouen.com/gallery.html). Conventional well executed dishes; roast marrow with asparagus starter was exceptional, stuffed lamb saddle a tad overdone, definitive cheese board, and smartly executed desserts. Service utterly professional, but not in the least condescending. Bordeaux/Bungundy-centric wine list, reasonably priced. Maitre'd guided... More

We arrived a little early at 7.20 and was greeted with some confusion as the waitress did not know what table to put us on... More

Formal French dining in a beautiful room on Place Vieux Marche. Delicately done twist on old French favourites. Maybe a little overpriced. Full of French people on a Saturday evening.

We have both taken the menu gastronomique and we were very satisfied with what we got: great taste, beautiful presentation of the food. Service was slightly slow but it turned out to be better as we had enough time to digest in between every course and didn't feel too stuffed.

This is a beautiful restaurant with great food, attentive staff and a lovely feel to the place. The poached pear dessert with chocolate is a must. We had a leisurely dinner as a family and would definitely recommend it.

They have a really young talented chef, the food is really good and hot , the service is professional and the decoration is classy. I recommend to eat their signature lobster with the wine sauce.
