Small, picturesque, family-run restaurant located within the hotel. We've eaten here during visits to Mont St. Michel three or four time over the past 50 years and it just keeps getting better. Friendly clientele, often travelers from France and around the world. Filet au Poivre and fish dishes are excellent. Good wine list, excellent Calvados.

We enjoyed this restaurant a lot during our stay in Normandy and have eaten here twice. They have a few set menus of which we have the four course. For the four course menu, the have a great choice of starters, main courses and desserts. Between the main course and dessert they provide a wide selection of French cheeses. The... More

Really nice French restaurant. Lunch time deal well worth the money. Excellent service despite our Rustic French. Old fashioned interior and well maintain. I have been here 3 times now and I'm never disappointed. Based in the lovely town of Avaranche. The hotel looks lovely & I aim to stay there soon!

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
