Fine French fare in the Old Town

This small restaurant is part of a strip running alongside the church of St Maclou. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a table at the back of the main section of the restaurant. We chose from a 3 course set menu. My wife had eggs cocotte, followed by cod and then a chocolate mousse. I had... read more

The freshness of my tuna steak was overwhelmed by salt - a great pity. Small portion of well prepared assorted vegetables accompanied the tuna. The portion husband's fish dish for a main course (not entree) was small. Seeing the lovely summer fruit puff pastries served at neighbouring 2 tables, I ordered it but only got 4 pieces of very thin... More

First class restaurant. Friendly staff. Good service. Reasonable price. But it is all about the food. Limited menu but boy oh boy is it good. Good presentation and cooking. Food is fabulous.

Very friendly after a reserved start (why not? That's correct). A truly fine end to a week of great dining through the Loire & Normandie. Simple but very well prepared. Very good foie gras, great beef (too big for us old folk) a light desert for one of us & the amazing, fresh baked, baba au calvados for the other.... More

We can recommend this restaurant if you're looking for good French food at a reasonable price. The place was bustling on a mid week night with tourists and locals creating a vibrant atmosphere. The food was very tasty and the staff were very helpful and spoke English, which helped choosing from their menu. Ideal place if you want to sample... More

The original recommended restaurant we went to was fully booked , we were re-directed to the Auberge. Friendly greeting , and as the weather was very warm we ate inside, Decor smart and clean ,with some of the original ancient structure carefully exposed which added to its ambiance . . We only ordered Les Plats and Dessert . The Plats... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. Very nice. Our waiter translated the menu for us. Locals are obviously present, a good indicator! Located near the Cathedral in a classy part of Rouen. Lots of restaurants on this street.

After being "told off" for pushing two outdoor tables together to accommodate ourselves ( why?) the waiter was frosty to say the least. The food was just what I've grown to expect for €13.50 for two courses. Ok, not gastronomic but good value. Good rabbit liver parfait, pretty good bavette (always a bit of a chewing challenge) and an ok... More

Well, I wanted to have a good steak while in Normandie. It was probably my mistake ordering a sirloin, it was of a standard size but not soft at all. Sitting outside and watching the people passing by was fine a sort of compensation for the food. Yeah, and the vine was good

We happened on this restaurant on our visit to Rouen. The waiter became friendly and service was good. More importantly the food was wonderful. We shared a first course if sweetbreads in mustard sauce. The simply melted in our mouths. Then we had the pike (pollard) and the quenelles. I particularly like the quenelles which were light and flavorful. What... More
