We visited La Croix d'Or after an absence of about one year. We were impressed then but we both agreed that it has got even better. Though we had the basic menu we could not fault the presentation and service or the quality of the ingredients or the timing of the presentation of the courses. We... read more

Inventive dishes served in an old Coaching Inn. Don't usually like beetroot but their gratin was very good. The place fills with locals at mid-day which is no surprise as the meals are well judged and fairly priced. Keep intending to go back but like to try other places so it will have to wait until December which makes December... More

I had not been to the restaurant for about 10 years and found many of the same staff and the food was just as good. The 28 Euros menus with 4 courses was very good value but my partners main course at 23 Euros was very small.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and it was just lovely. It's attached to a hotel in the town of Avranches, known for Patton's visit, and you may not look twice at it. But inside it's just beautiful, especially the room overlooking the garden. The staff was professional and one woman in particular was just so attentive and friendly,... More

This number one ranked restaurant by Trip Advisor in Avranches merits its rating and should be considered by anyone in the Mont St Michel area. Set in an ancient room with exposed wood beams it presents in two rooms, one with a huge walk in fireplace, an ideal dining spot for romance or just fine dining. Two prix fixe menus... More

There is a variety of local dishes on the A La Carte menu or they do varying set menus ranging from €25 to €57. We went for the €40 set menu which included a starter,... More

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 for order... 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.
