You need time for lunch because service is rather slow. We sat outside, it is a pretty setting right next to the canal. The mussles were ok, not the best and nothing to write home about. So I won't.

Excellent service from the moment we stepped through the door and fabulous food. A must place to eat if you like good food.

We enjoyed a real quality fish dinner here. Free public parking at the harbour (walking distance). Our rather aloof waiter spoke French only, but we managed.

Located around the corner from the canal, L'Ecailler offers both inside and outside patio dining. Expect slower service if you choose the latter. We ate inside as it was too cool in the evening once the sun sets in this picturesque fishing village. The service we had was actually quite attentive and helpful. Seating is comfortable with more space between... More

Had I read TripAdvisor before visiting, I would have gone elsewhere. I'm glad I didn't. The selection in the menu is limited and best value is by using the set menu's, which compare pricewise to other restaurants in Port-en-Bessain. These are 18E, 23E and 34E. I found my appetiser was excellent - Foie Gras, entree was Mussels - again superb,... More

We were very excited about eating seafood in a French seaside location. The mussels were tiny and tasteless . We ordered Cod and chorizo which was not fresh and very dry. The wine was good as was the atmosphere. There were two waitresses for the whole place and they did their best!! Our waitress was from Bridgend! She was great... More

We visited this restaurant whilst staying in Port en Bessin, primarily due to other reviews saying about the poor attitude of the staff. This always amuses me and makes me keen to see for myself. As usual, I found that if you are friendly and polite to the staff, they return you the same courtesy. From the moment we arrived,... More

We ate here twice during our stay. The first time we were very pleased with the food, although the service was average. The waitresses were quite miserable-looking and not friendly at all. They only approached our table when absolutely necessary. However, we decided to visit a second time, due to the food quality that we experienced the first time round.... More

We recently (July 2014) stayed four nights at Port-en-Bessen and ate at this restaurant one evening. The service was absolutely horrible. It was indifferent and bordered on being rude when our waitress tossed our bill onto the table as she walked by. She simply didn't want to be bothered. Not once during our meal did she check to see if... More
