2nd attempt - well done

I was here in September for a dinner and it was not really good - basic food, sad atmosphere. But four months later even my friends told me that restaurant is sinking I gave another chance and visit them for lunch. And it was good. Good service. Well done food. Reasonable prices. 140 euro for... read more

I went here on the last night of a 2 week business trip to Evreux with a couple of colleagues. I wish I had found it on the first night, because it was the nicest meal I have had in a very long time and I would have come more than once during my stay. The 39 euro menu was... More

We accidentally found this restaurant whilst in Evreux last week and had an excellent meal. The choice was good, the restaurant was full, mainly it seemed people who were locals - a good sign!

No bread until you go and ask. Average service. Huge menu with different set options. In my opinion better take a starter and a main you really like then to choose from 7 starters and 7 mains with cheese you might do not need and one of the six deserts. We had scallops (three covered with fat bacon and asparagus)... More

I remember well my first visit to this restaurant : it was in July 1967, just after the company I worked for had moved from Paris to Evreux, and (very) junior executives like me were invited out for dinner by our MD ! Ever since, and every time I have been in the area, I have returned... It has always... More

Recmmended by our hotel- Hotel L'Orme- went early evening when quiet. I chose a set menu- around 20-25 Euros- Carpaccio with Parmesan cheese, Duck and finally Nougat Ice cream. My wife chose The Brochette and Profiterole- With a nice bottle of wine- 60 Euros- A bargain for the level of service and the taste!

We stayed in Evreux for the the last night of a trip through France to the Med and back again, to be within easy striking distance of Calais. La Vieille Gabrelle is a wonderful atmospheric restaurant in a side street close to the center. The fixed priced menus are very interesting, we chose the mid price and were wowed by... More

You will not be disappointed here. Found by chance, it is truly a really good place with good selection especially fish dishes. Very pleased, would visit again. Such good value, too.
