The duck was out of this world

Anyway, managed to get a reservation, which is nigh on impossible even out of season as this was, with locals using it. That... read more

Great value - we enjoyed the three course menu for 24 euros. We sat outside in September with a view of the square and Church & the staff there are lovely, the food & wine good and great for families and couples alike.

Food is OK but the English translation is incompetent. If you cannot speak or read French then reading the English version will completely confuse you. I often visit the area and would not return to this venue unless they try to find a decent English translation of their menu.

The food menu constantly changes and is always delicious and very well presented. The prices are very reasonable for the high standard of meals served. A good selection of beers, ciders and wines too. Highly recommended!

We visited this restaurant on the way back from Utah beach. We had sat in the Creperie next door for 20 minutes before the waitress came to tell us that they had 'finished' in the kitchen. We hopped next door and had a very nice, honest meal. The waitress was very efficient and helpful with the language. Would recommend but... More
