We ate twice at this restaurant in Ouistreham, once on a Sunday because it was pretty much the only open restaurant on that evening. Service was average, as was the food. Omelets and simple fresh dishes were ok. Would not order the beef burguignon again, as it had definitely been frozen and not fully re-heated in a microwave overn.

I was staying in Ouistreham with a group of friends visiting the Normandy beaches etc... We went to Le Menhir for 2 nights in a row. The food was excellent with generous portions and the waiter and staff very friendly too. They were most welcoming which is why we went back for a second time.

Good food, relaxing atmosphere and very friendly people who looked after us very well. We tried to go back again on the Wednesday evening, but they were closed and there was no... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our 36hr stay in Ouistreham. Our first visit we popped in for a very quick snack and a refreshing 'Pression'. We chose a delicious galette (savoury pancake) and had a large beer each. The galette was warm and tasty and just what we needed, arriving promptly too. The beer was quite expensive for what... More
