Excellent but no surprise

This restaurant is just what you can expect from a 2 michelin stars restaurant: elegant, neat, classic, delicious, polite. All the dishes were excellent.

This restaurant is just what you can expect from a 2 michelin stars restaurant: elegant, neat, classic, delicious, polite. All the dishes were excellent. I especially enjoyed my truffle risotto, veil and wine, the cheese selections and the dessert-gasm earl grey sorbet. But because it's a very classic restaurant, It's just missing surprise element. After all, a perfect normandy cuisine!

We loved this place - perfectly cooked and delicately flavored, with fusion elements and fresh, local ingredients. The atmosphere is simple and spare, and there's a good selection of wines en carafe as well as by the bottle. The oeuf mollet with boiled lardons on a bed of baby spinach was divine, as was the cod (and not at all... More

Quite a value find in Rouen. Many high quality options are very expensive but we found the dishes here to be reasonably priced and of outstanding quality. i had the Beef tenderloin (locally raised) and it was among the best I have had in many years. A perfect crust and an outstanding sauce accompanies the dish.

Had dinner with my girlfriend. We arrived early and had a lot of rooms for ourselves. Food is excellente; we can find Gill's touch. For Friday night, this place has a great quality/price ratio.

Had dinner here on a recommendation from our hotel. Got in late & sat outside in the cold - the only spot available. Then waited, waited & waited. Waited for the menus to show up; then waited for the wine to be served; finally waited for the food; walked in for the check. The young busgirl was throwing us embarrassed... More

Normally restaurants with food as good as this one have a personality that's an extension of the cuisine, but not Gill Cote Bistro. The food was excellent, if not adventurous, but the atmosphere had all the intimacy of an assembly line. Other reviews remark on the excellent service and cool atmosphere, so maybe a three-hour drive from Bayeux to Rouen... More

Delicious food, outstanding service, casual bistro with a very comfortable vibe in a very central Rouen location. Loved it! Highly recommended.

Despite filling up very quickly on a Monday evening the service in this busy little restaurant was friendly and efficient. The formule menu is great value with plenty of choice and the food is well cooked and presented. The wine list was pricey (and only one of us was drinking) but when asked the waitress was happy to let us... More

Wonderful food and service. Rather informal (it’s a bistro) and cool. Extremelly reasonable prices and perfect location. Very good selection of wines (per glass or pitcher). I can’t recommend it enough.

A great casual venue with very good food. Try to get a table outside if the wether permits it. Nice spot for people-watching.
