A good breakfast

Nice, friendly and personal service with a good good coffee and a perfect omelettes. Great view and a nice piece of traditional France.

Excellent meal. They were very tolerant of our poor French. Made us feel at home and the fish was very good.

The place is tiny but the food is spectacular - fish/scallops perfectly done. Service is fantastic. Great Owner - he works as a waiter and knows his business.

Loved the restaurant. It's right in the main square (opposite the church). We tried €35 set menu. Oysters were great, lamb shank was well made, and fish (sea bass) was very well made. Loved the hospitality and was able to explain our needs to French staff without significant issue. It's a must visit if you are close to Utah Beach.

Went for a family meal whilst camping at Utah Beach. The food was excellent, particularly the local oysters and the steak. Wide range of fixed price menus - we had the €24 menu although there was also an €18 and a more expensive one also. The terrace looked good but we sat indoors as the terrace was full and it... More

Have been traveling through Europe for the past 2 weeks and this has to be the best lunch we have had the entire time. We all had seafood was fresh and perfectly prepared. Also, the menu is in English too - nice treat!

We went to this restaurant twice while we were on holiday and the food (as shown in my photos posted separately) was excellent & extremely good value for money. Also dog friendly which is nice as we can't leave our dog on his own in the gite. If we return to the area we will definitely be eating in this... More

On a beautiful small town square across from the church. Eat here is visiting Normandy battle sites. Small WW2 museum on the square as well. A la carte and menus reasonably priced.
