After hiking the Etretat Cliffs we were pretty hungry and looking for a nice lunch place. We found Le Galion in one of the small streets and walked in. There was only one last table left, all the others were full - lucky us. The place is nicely decorated in blue and white coastal theme - very... read more

Only got a table the first night because we were early, and knew enough to reserve when we wanted to return 2 nights later. Had fixed price menus both time, but different choices. LOVED the fresh oysters with camembert cheese, but enjoyed it all. Not cheap, but well worth what we paid!

First the bad news, one of the most ignorant waiter come maître de that I have met, poor service. However the food is fantastic and worth the bad stuff so go and check it out, but don't tip the staff, they don't deserve it !!!!

We were a party of five and got in without reservation, very friendly staff, nice selection of food, reasonable wine by the glass. Very cosy antique interior.

The food there was really really good, the wine was expensive but delicious as well. The decor was very classy and reminded me of a calm sunny day at the sea. The waiters and waitresses were very friendly and helpful. get the scallops, they're delicious and just melt in your mouth. no need to say more. Just go and eat... More

We had a good meal here at this restaurant which was recommended by our guest house. The service however was horrible. We live in France so we understand that the service is typically slow so you can enjoy the dining experience. However the service tonight was as if we were totally ignored. We wanted to see the sunset so we... More

We stopped in here for an evening dinner and both had to have the fish soup! Excellent. Then we had veal kidneys cooked to perfection in a delicious sauce, accompanied by a very drinkable red wine. The service was brisk and attentive but not overbearing. The surroundings are tasteful, unpretentious and comfortable. All in all, a very pleasant evening which... More

One reason why we like Le Galion is because it is next door to our apartment in this lovely Normandy coastal town. However, that reason won't apply to most people, so I'll mention some of the others. One is their really interesting menu - large enough to offer variety, but small enough to let you know that it's all freshly... More

This was possibly the best dinner we had during a 2 week holiday in France. The prices are reasonable, the food delicious and the service friendly and timely. It's a proper French restaurant used by locals and not a tourist trap.
