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

We had seen this restaurant earlier in the week when visiting Utah beach museum and it looked so inviting we made an effort to return to eat one night later in the week. The staff had a better grasp of the English language than I do of the French one and ordering was easy thanks to the bilingual menu, which... More

We ended up swinging back through Sainte Marie du Mont after a fantastic day touring Utah beaches and following the paras! This very pleasant family restaurant had delightful food and service.

We came here on the strength of trip advisor reviews and the food was excellent. We did ask for the bill three times but if it wasn't the last night of the season we would have gone back.

We made a late visit to Utah Beach and stumbled on this restaurant on the way back through Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. Creperie Montoise (right next door) wouldn't serve us after 9pm, but L'estaminet was very friendly and accomodating. Not much English (the only thing preventing an excellent rating), but great service and a delicious 3-course prixe fixe menu. If you're looking for... More

This is one of the worst restaurants I've EVER been to When we got the food I had ordered the sausage in a gallette. It was a block of some sausae in a burned crepe. My friend acually took a bite and gagged and had to SPIT IT OUT. Stay away!!!!!!!!!!!

We went to this restaurant since it was the only one in the area open on Monday night. It was terrible. I ordered the salmon and it was over cooked. Others at the table has a similar experience. In fact, two of our party actually gagged while trying to eat their food. I don't understand how a French restaurant could... More
