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.

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

Nice evening with service up to specs despite what it reads elsewhere. Despite the price the sole was fine and i ve not seen sad faces around the other guests tables. The ice bowls with fruit de mere looked very nice. All in all this is 3 star. If booked try next door Fleur de Sel which is second in... More

Fish – excellent – came with more vegetables – all beautifully prepared - than any other meal we had while three weeks in France and England. Very busy, seemed to be more locals than tourists there. Not much English is spoken, service is slow and a little too indifferent, but the food made up for it. The apple tart is... More

Most disappointing, this was an eagerly anticipated meal due to our last experience. The starter assiette de mere was OK, but the lamb chops were terrible. As tough as old boots and also very stringy. Not really edible at all. Not exactly a cheap restaurant and we will not be back. Cannot recommend, what a shame.
