Great for coffee

Have stopped here a few times for coffee or beer and have always found the staff welcoming and friendly. The bar is in a great location in the historic part of Domfront and I can recommend it as a very pleasant place for a drink.

Fine for a coffee but for God's sake don't eat there. Madame is unfriendly to the point of rudeness and the food is dismal and tasteless. You have been warned..

Great friendly service, lovely food and good value. Good choice of food and wine all served with a smile, despite being very quiet on a Thursday evening at the end of August we al thoroughly enjpyed ourselves.

We had coffee here several times and lunch here once. The place was always very busy but the waiting staff were cheerful and efficient and made us feel welcome even when you could see how stretched they were. The food was perfectly fine but nothing special. I had an ample salad with grilled chicken and my husband had the same... More

Visit each time that we are in the area, always make sure to book as it is very popular with locals. The Owner and staff work hard to ensure that you enjoy your visit and want for nothing

We were attracted here by the happy chatter of diners that was emanating from it. It was almost full but we were quickly accommodated at the only spare table and chose the 3-course set lunch menu at 11€. Lovely food and great value. First course was a hearty pasta salad, followed by pork escalope, tomate provençale and fries, clearly freshly... More

Went 3 times in a week for midday menu and once for coffee. €11 euro for 3 courses. It's a set menu at midday but never disappointed. Tastes great.

if you want a great example of French food in a friendly atmosphere with a good choice of wine then look no further. I have been visiting this restaurant for over 5 years on my trips to France and have never had a bad experience.The owners are friendly and very patient with English visitors and make you very welcome.

Partly through reviews on Tripadviser, and partly on recommendation from a friend who has a house in Falaise, we made a point of visiting both Domfront and this bistro. We were a bit later than we had hoped, gone 1 o'clock by the time we got to the bistro, and yes it was extremely busy! We were found a table... More

The food is well cooked and plentiful, wether you go a la carte or plat de jour it is always good. The lady that runs it is always friendly even though she is busy, great place, can't wait... More
