I just returned from a three-week cycling trip through Normandy/Brittany (solo) and then the Dordogne (with my family). I dined out every evening in the best restaurants that I could find (within a reasonable budget). Of all the unbelievable food and wine I consumed on the trip, the best dinner I had on the trip was in Avranches at the... More

Avranches was fairly close to where we were staying and as the restaurant came highly recommended on Trip advisor, we phoned to reserve a table. We were very impressed by the pretty gardens at the back of the hotel as we walked from the car park. It had to be said that the restaurant was very crowded, but most of... More

During a visit to Granville we travelled a few miles south to Avranche. A friend had recommended we try the Croix d'Or for a lunchtime meal. The hotel is situated at the top of the main street and we had no difficulty finding it. On entry I was speaking as well as I could remembering my schoolboy days when the... More

Overall the meal experience was very good. The service was excellent - you know when the waiters crumb-down after the main course that you are in a great place - the employees have been trained in delivering reat food service. The food was excellent quality with exquisite flavours. One minor improvement would be to reduce the pieces of raw duck... More

We looked on trip advisor to find a place to stay and a place to eat in Avranches. The restaurant is impeccably presented. The food is absolutely and utterly marvellous. However, we were with our children and the wait for our starters was unacceptably long, over an hour. We then had to wait again for our mains, over an hour... More

We dined here after a gap of some 13 or so years when we used to be frequent visitors to Avranches. Back then we always had a good meal, more often than not outstanding, and with service to match from well drilled staff. M Berthaum has maintained those high standards despite the passage of time and the restaurant remains an... More

On the long, boring drive to Caen to catch the ferry we headed into Avranches for lunch and turned to Trip Advisor for recommendations. This hotel came up as #1 and it's easy to see why. The food was exquisite and the service warm and friendly. If they still do it when you visit, I'd highly recommend the beetroot tarte... More

The best food I have eaten in France. Our waiter who was from London was great with a sense of humour. Will def go back when we pass through. Read review that the sole was good so I had that. It was the best I have ever tasted.
