I stumbled upon this restaurant and found the food to be outstanding. Also, I was very impressed as the chef made the meal to order. I did not even really order off the menu. The beer selection could have been better but the dinner and dessert were excellent!!!!!

After reading the rave reviews I visited this restaurant. The first thing that alerted me was the tacky laminated menu with very reasonable prices. Indeed we were served the free starter which I have to say was poorly presented, a bit of salmon on cheap sliced brown bread with a (shop bought) pepper containing crème cheese on top is rather...

Very pleasantly welcomed and made to feel at home, which was important given that this is a small restaurant. Nice but fairly limited range of food, which allowed for it to be individually prepared by the characterful chef and presumably owner. The end result is great tasting dishes. Unrushed, relaxed ambience thanks not least to the friendliness of the service.... More

We dined here twice two years ago and this year came back for more. The (pork) calvados, salmon, lamb, filet mignon (we’re really not red-meat eaters, but this happened to be so good that it’ll be pointless to get it elsewhere), and homemade soups were all dynamite. There is a nice selection of wines, including half-bottles, in this informal restaurant... More

Went here based on the high Trip advisor review. Owner said they were closed but had a single Prix fixe dinner - smoked salmon on toast, garlic shrimp and sole meuniere. Unbelievable and super fresh. Fish were shown to us before cooking. Asked for white wine and owner brought out the first bottle he saw - an Alsace pinot Gris.... More

Fantastic little "cafe" across from the church of the same name. Very friendly staff, and the owner/chef was phenomenal! Definitely a French flair as fare as the cuisine. The escargot were excellent as were the Argentinian steak and Pork Normandy!

Stayed at hotel in the neighborhood and found the reviews for Restaurant Sainte-Catherine on Tripadvisor. Experience was amazing! TINY restaurant (no more than 8 tables) that is like eating at a good friend's house. Open kitchen managed by wonderful proprietor who personally cares for every order. Meal started with smoked salmon on toast and a shot (not sure what of,... More
