Truly amazing oysters

The Gillardeau No 3 oysters (6 for 15 Euros) were among the very best I have ever eaten. Perfectly fresh, fabulous texture and taste - just amazing. Main course of turbot was also excellent, as was the mousse au chocolat. As other reviews point out, the restaurant is in a somewhat desolate... read more

Tucked away on a bleak quayside, Le Comptoir a Huitre is the kind of place to turn even the most chauvinist English person into a francophile. From the moment our waiter showed us a trayful of the freshest fish imaginable, we knew we were in for a treat. We started with oysters. Then I had a thick tuna steak while... More

A friend and I shared a shellfish platter and it was superb! Fresh, tasty, plentiful and we'll presented. 10/10. The dining room is quaint and charming and rustically French and does not take anything away from the food. Don't be put off by its dockside location as the fish is as good as anything I've eaten in New York's La... More

As with many of the best restaurants, this one is located away from the main tourist area and very much reserved for the locals. If you can afford the above average prices and are prepared to venture away from the centre of the town, you will be rewarded. There is plenty of competition in Dieppe, with many well established alternatives.... More

Tried this place a few years ago, much recommended (why???). Horrible overdone in your face decor, sort of crowded for lunch but that did not explain the non-existent service, Took too long--to get any service for welcome, aperitifs, to order, to actually get the food, etc. The food was average, but the prices were significant!--altogether better at the tourist joints...

We visited this out of the way restaurant on a Saturday lunchtime. The restaurant was pretty full and the decor/ambience was super. There was a wide variety of seafood available and choosing was tricky as so much was very tempting. The oysters were superb and my John Dory cooked with morelles and cream absolutely delicious. My husband thoroughly enjoy his... More

This is hidden away on the outskirts of the town, around a 10 minute walk from the town centre. I'd found it on streetview before visiting otherwise it may have been a bit awkward to find. Went here for lunch on a weekend trip. Food very good but for two people with no wine it's fairly pricey for lunch €80... More

It's worthwhile travelling the short distance from the main harbour/town area to eat at this restaurant. Very popular with the locals, the seafood is stunningly good. Expect to find it difficult to get a table unless you have a reservation, particularly at the weekends. Dinner starts at 7:30 p.m. and you need to be there then to stand any chance... More

It's easy to find, this restaurant, as it is on the quai where you can't miss it really. The restaurant is actually a little larger than one would expect looking at the facade, that resembles more like a small house. Inside, a long bar and wooden tables with white table linen. Cosy. Many photographs and art on the wall, unassuming... More
