Good but not as good as expected

We ate her one evening and were expecting something really good due to recommendations. The food was fine and the service was efficient. Wine was expensive but in all it was an enjoyable evening but never really excelled in anything

I have known La Belle Epoque for 25 years, since I was a child. The new owner and his staff have managed to establish a new atmosphere, full of conviviality and laughter. La Belle Epoque used to be a little 'stuffy' and now the amiability of the staff makes all the difference. As far as the food is concerned, products... More

We were warmly welcomed.The crew is a bit disorganized but very polite and friendly. All products are very fresh. Get a chance to lose yourself in the "discovery menu"

My wife and I ate from the set menu and couldn't find a fault with the food or service. We were warmly welcomed, it's good brasserie food! I had prawns followed by steak my wife had goats cheese followed by mussels.

absolutely horrible service, completly disorganized. The waitress was even unable to open a bottle of wine! In France! We waited forever until our food arrived and then there was no silverware on the table... and none came even after we pointed this out to the waiter, my husband had to go around the restaurant collecting knifes, forks and spoons from...

Reading the reviews in French below one can't help thinking that there is some sort of organised local campaign to diss this place. For heaven's sake, don't be misled, it's a little gem. We hadn't bothered to research Cabourg, and so were just wandering the streets looking for somewhere that served a decent seafood or langoustine assiette. Lucky that we... More

the food was excellent but the quantities were far to large. The service was good. Rather old fashioned restaurant and food obviously goos as everyine else was French and middle aged or more!

I have been surprised by the negative reviews of this restaurant where I have always been well fed. I went again on Sunday lunch time and was pleased with my meal.
