Avoid - A disgrace to French cuisine !

Only 1 guy was making efforts to provide a good service. The others were just ignoring customers until THEY felt they had time to serve them. One of them being particularly loud and arrogant. Food was terrible. If you had in mid to stop here for a good local Normandie crepe, this is not the right... read more

Went to this restaurant without checking tripadvisor first, I really wished we would have... We ordered pasta, a salad, a children's menu for our 1,5 year old son, and an extra plate of french fries. The pasta was a rediculously small portion for an adult and it was sticky to the point where you could only cut it if you... More

The food was fine, Mussels & Chips and a very good Salad. Service was somewhat lacking, no attention to detail like supplying forks with a meal, washcloths for shell fish etc. No attempt to smile but we survived

After 3 years in France we finally found a restaurant that could compete with the real Italian pizza. The thin and delicate crust, wood oven and a friendly face did it for us. Also take away to enjoy a great pizza at the beach. Also great deserts. Good size portions.

We found this small restaurant when waiting for another restaurant to open for dinner and stopped for a drink. It is situated on the side of a car park at the front of Etretat, which has a small amusement park. There are tables available both outside and inside, service was quite given that there were very few people in at... More

The food was alright. The bread served with the main dishes was stale, service very nice and friendly. Toilets were very dirty.

We went for lunch having spent a pleasant morning wandering the streets of Etretat and the food and wine was acceptable, the price was acceptable, the staff were efficient and friendly enough but nothing more. All in all a pretty straightforward affair which possily explains the cock-eyed look we got when we were not straightforward and said we would share... More

Although sweet crepes are everywhere, there are fewer places to get a lunch crepe or galette. Two of us had galettes and they were OK. Not great but not bad, either. Our waiter was great. Not as awful as others found it.
