Good quality food

We had dinner here on a Friday evening. The service was quick and efficient, the staff speaking both French and English. We looked at most of the menus of restaurants on the street and Le Menhir seemed to have the best selection. The food was delivered quickly and was well prepared and... read more

We stayed in Honfleur, but having visited the area three times previously knew there was only one place we wanted to eat. The mussels in cream are to die for, good staff, well sighted venue so outdoor eating is in sunshine and sheltered when it gets a bit windy. Lovely friendly staff, offering good food at all levels. No rushing... More

We ate here several times and were not disappointed with our choices. Quantity of food stopped us eating more than a sorbet for dessert. Not opened on the Monday of our stay.

On our last evening in Normandy we dined at Le Menhir,Scallops and Crepes were fantastic,very good and polite service.Our only regret is we did not find Le Menhir before. You dont have to take my word for how good the meal was,just go.

Walked around Ouistreham looking for a place to eat. Found this place in the pedestrian mall and it was packed to the rafters ! ( Always a good sign) We had Turkey breast escalopes in a delicious sauce with home cooked chips and salad with a great dressing along with a pichet of decent wine. Recommended.

We were a family of 7 (four kids!) and Le Menhir fit us in for a 7:00pm reservation. My husband and I both ordered mussels and commented how they were the best mussels we've ever had. The kids had kids meals for 9.5 euros a piece, which I thought was massively high priced for what they got. The waitstaff was... More

We have dined here several times and it is a regular haunt for us during the D-Day anniversary period each June. The food is usually very good (especially onion soup!) and the prices are quite fair. Service varies depending on how busy it is but it is never poor. Would recommend to anyone.

Ate here 3 times as we did not like the look of the other restaurants nearby. The deserts were a wow - particularly the chocolate pudding and the floating islands. The mains were quite acceptable. First night there was live music as well.

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.
