Origine, your food, service & atmosphere are exemplary. Elegant, delicious, art of a plate. Very enjoyable evening all round. Many thanks for making French food perfect! We hope to be back one day!

We had a delightful lunch and initially found it difficult to choose between the tempting options on the menu. Eventually we settled on the 4-course degustation, with our expectations set quite high. Those expectations were promptly blown out of the water by perfectly executed and inventive cooking of delicious local produce. That meeting of widened eyes over the amuse-bouche (fish... More

When I found that Gill was closed for the month of August, I picked this restaurant after reading other reviews. I am very glad I did. My family dined here during our stay in Rouen and greatly enjoyed our meal. We chose the 9 course degustation menu. Each course was well thought out and balanced, and not so complicated that... More

In our experience Rouen is not a city that sets the gastronomic pulse racing and in being tempted to give Origine a try expectations were measured. We decided on the 9 course menu "Origine" as the dishes appealed to both of us and was temptingly constructed. It turned out to be a popular choice with other diners as well. What... More

Really one of the best of the city. There is a chef behind this and he knows his job. Great talent, nice presentation, excellent wine. Expensive? Doesn't matter.

I Loved every dish. Gorgeous presentation. Definitely a have to try... More

Our first meal after a 12 hour intercontinental flight was in this Michelin starred restaurant. We still had our luggage with us from the station before checking in our hotel after lunch. I opted for the business lunch menu for its light fish & vegetable dishes while my wife opted for just a main course from a la carte. In... More

each meal of the 8-course dinner, with its associated wine, was perfectly presented, delicate and an explosion of subtle savors. Staff is extremely attentive, pleasant and simple.

I was impressed by this restaurant from the outstart. The decor is quite nice and the restaurant, albeit slightly more select, is welcoming. There are several set menus at lunch time in addition to a la carte. They were very accommodating for people in our party who had allergies and other dietary requirements. The service was with a smile and... More
