Great location but average kitchen quality & service

The location is great - old house with very nice atmosphere. We have decided, after long day, to just jump here in and ask for a table for 2 (with our small dog). The place for us was found quite fast, but after that the service was not really impressive. We were waiting for 15 minutes and waiting... read more

We stayed here for 4 nights and dined here on 3 of them. We found all the meals were superb- highlights included fish soup, rabbit starters, prawn dishes, gorgeous cheese board, duck. Everything was beautfully presented and well cooked. Portion sizes were just right and everything came with vegetables which is slightly unusual for france. A good and extensive wine... More

We stayed here and had dinner plus breakfast. We chose the mid range set menu which turned out to provide excellent food and service in a very atmospheric character dining room. Service was friendly relaxed and efficient. A most enjoyable meal.

Dinner was really wonderful and the service was very good. The restaurant is in an historic old hotel with charming antiquities and a wonderful old world atmosphere.

I decided to spend a weekend in Mont St Michel and I slept by a very nice hotel: La Croix d'Or, 10 km far from Mont st Michel. The environment was nice, stylish and my wife and I decided to have dinner by the hotel restaurant, that was sorrounded by beautiful flowers. Dinner was good and the service was excellent.... More

This was one of our best meals during our 9 days in France. We were recommended here by our Chateau and it did not disappoint. Exceptionally good food and great value set meals. Cannot complain.

This is literally amazing. I cannot remember ever eating in such a special little restaurant. It was a total surprise, we expected a casual lunch and yet it turned out to be a 5* meal. I could not recommend this more.

We came to visit Moint St. Michel and were looking for a nice restaurant and we found the best around, good first and main plates, plus a table of cheese and a great dessert. Price wasn't expensive at all and waiters were really friendly. Definitely the best choice to a trip to visit Moint St Michel.

Top French nosh. Excellent service. Lots of local specialities. On the higher end price-wise but definitely worth it - a real treat.

The ambience is all you could want for a relaxing dinner. The ingredients are fresh and well presented and the cheese board is excellent; all the cheeses we tasted were at point and... More
