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

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.

We visited La Marmite as it was recommended by the Rough Guide and very not disappointed. An amuse bouche was brought promptly and, when I explained I cannot dairy foods, replaced by something more suitable very promptly. From then on the matter of avoiding dairy food became very easy and the whole matter was handled very discretely. The food was... More
