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.

A very nice restaurant in the centre of town. Our Labrador was made welcome. Comfortable dining room and welcoming service. Menu was good with a la carte and fixed price set menu selections. Not cheap but well presented food and very tasty. The Foie Gras was superb. Wine expensive with ordinary rose de provence starting at 25 euros! More dining... More

An excellent meal in a delightful room. The waiter could have been a little more friendly and the wine was pricey, but otherwise no complaints. Service was efficient and the food interesting and very will prepared.

La Vielle Gabelle was recommended. By my daughter who now lives in Evreux, so we ate there the first night of my visit. The restaurant is in a beautiful old home, with eating rooms on 3 different levels. The restaurant is located very near city center, and the restaurant is very beautiful and very Norman in its construction, very old,... More

This is now a great place to go. La Vieille Gabelle used to be very old fashioned. There has been a lot of improvements in the decoration and the menu. It is now one of the best in Evreux and still reasonnably priced (food and wines)

We ate a lovely dinner here on Saturday 15 September. Food was exellent. But staff seemed badly over-stretched - perhaps a colleague had failed to turn up for work? We were happy to eat at a very leisurely pace, but could see other diners becoming frustrated. We had booked well in advance and were slightly surprised to be seated on... More

I cannot remember the last time we had a faultless meal. My other half Teresa has been less than impressed with french food and insists Italian is better. However, we both agree that tonight was probably the best meal we have ever had and it cost than £30 a head including drinks and coffee The goats cheese and salmon starters... More

Oysters, steak, good red wine - who could ask for anything more? I was lucky to be there with a French speaking companion so had no problem with the menu, but other comments are spot on - not much English spoken. Lovely restaurant, can't wait to go again.
