We had dinner on Friday 30th May and very luckily managed to get a table as it was almost fully booked . We had the fixed price menu which had plenty of choice and was beautifully cooked. Extras included a selection of nibbles with our drinks and small sweets and cakes with our coffee. A very enjoyable evening, nice atmosphere... More

This is a really lovely small restaurant, just behind the Place du Vieux Marche so it is easy to miss. We ate here on a Saturday night and were glad to have booked as the place was full. This gave the ambience a pleasant buzz. The menu had 3 set options at different prices and an a la carte. The... More

This restaurant was good, but slightly on the expensive side. We like French food, but perhaps this is not the ideal place for vegetarians or pescaterians as there is very little choice that does not involve meat. Also, the waiters do not speak a lot of English so make sure you have a dictionary or a phone app in order... More

Welcoming staff Good menu, well executed Good wine selection Not cheap but definitely great value for a nice meal I would suggest that they do away with having a menu without prices for the ladies - felt a bit out of date / sexist

We ate some terrible food in Rouen until we discovered La Marmite by looking in the Michelin Green Guide. Like many great little restaurants La Marmite does not have an extensive menu but what they do they do very well, It was so good we went two nights running. and I had the fish in a seafood sauce both nights....

We were warmly greeted by the owner and husband of the chef on a rainy, chilly evening. He made a recommendation for wine that was to our taste and at reasonable cost. The food was delicious and did not break the bank. Unfortunately, there was only one other couple in the restaurant, so it felt very empty when they left.

We visited La Marmitte the first evening after the complete refurbishment of the interior. The owner was extremely friendly. His waitress seemed to be rather new. We loved the baked foie gras. It was realy superb. the other dishes were good, without being exceptional. It is a very charming restaurant where you can have a good diner at a reasonable... More

This was a second visit for my husband and I - this time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I booked a table via email from England and had confirmation very quickly from owner. The service was excellent. We decided on the Gourmand menu - seven courses. The food was gorgeous and the wine available was superb. I would definitely recommend... More

Its a very cosy restaurant giving you the sensation that you are in the dining room of a traditional elegant French house the host of which is preparing the dishes specially for you. The quality and the cooking of the meals is very good. We ordered two different menus which were very good. 20 euro each menu. A glass of... More

Intimate, French, fantastic. The place is astonishing. You would not walk off the street. The reviews are all French, the people in the restaurant are all French. A hidden gem. In Rouen? Don't miss this place.
