Unimpressed

12 friends went to this restaurant and we were at first told we may not be able to stay then waited 15 mins for menus. We eventually asked but again waited so we left. Very unimpressed with the service and the attitude of the staff.

Decided at the last moment to go for lunch instead of dinner. The restaurant was one of just a couple open. We both went for the 23.50 Euro menu and were not disappointed. The fish soup was one of the best my wife has tasted, and her main dish of red mullet was a new experience, but one she will... More

Restaurant has good fixed price menu's but the steak was a little small and a little chewy. But service was good and it was value for money.

We enjoyed a very good meal. Both fish and meat were simply delicious and very fine tasting. It is visited by the locals what made us decide to try this place. We were not disappointing at all. Service is quick and friendly.

This little restaurant is on the side of the docks where the fishing boats tie up. Stopped by for a lunch and chose from the set menu of the day. Nice white tablecloths and good service. Food was good. Toilets are upstairs ( not easy for everyone)

We chose to stay at Port-en-Bessin by chance on our return to the UK after holidaying in Poitaue-Charentes and were delighted we did. It's a charming spot and this is one of the many restaurants overlooking the canal where the fishing boats are moored. We were lucky to get accommodation and to find somewhere that could accommodate our party of... More

There are some very bad reviews about this place but we found it to be the opposite. The set menus are great value and the food was excellent. The service could have been better but the place was full and only two waiters. Great location as well. Would return.

The restaurant is right on the Port front and they clearly think they can serve what they want. Gave them a second chance, Food cold sent back no real apology just rubbish.

Good restaurant, very nice place at the harbor, we were lucky to find a place on the terrace. We ate very unusual fish soup, not bad. Of course, after that oysters and oysters again. The wine was very good, it matches good with all this. Prices reasonable, staff friendly, ready with a joke.

Had a meal here on a warm June evening. We were seated outside on a table of our choice overlooking the harbour. The waiter was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant has a nice informal atmosphere. We chose a nice crisp white wine which was delicious. We had the assiette de fruits de mer as a starter which was... More
