Our Favourite

We always eat here when on holiday in the area and as always top class. Sea food is amazing service top class. It is just about the best restaurant in the area. Not the cheapest but well worth the cost.

We chose La Citadelle based on its TripAdvisor ranking and the Michelin Guide 2015, but we were disappointed. First, and foremost, there are too many tables for the space, and the waiters are severely under-staffed: one can feel his/her neighbors watching/listening, very unpleasant; it took more than half-an-hour to get our entrees, and the dinner lasted two hours and half....

It had the typical fresh shellfish offerings that most of the restaurants port side have available. However, the amuse bouche and method of presentation far exceed the others. Great care is taken to create each plate, even the assiette of desserts. Highly recommend.

Great food! Wonderful wait staff! Reasonably priced; great value. Granville was day 3 of our bicycle trip across Brittany and Normandy. La Citadelle came highly recommended by both our hotel and the bike tour company and it did not disappoint. I'm embarrassed to say that my French is still extremely limited but the wait staff was great. I wasn't really... More

We dined with friends at the end of May; the restaurant was completely full - not surprising in view of the food we had! They had a series of fixed menus which were amazing value in the light of the quality of the food. The service was exceptional; the small team handled the full restaurant with ease and with great...

First rate starters, really good selection of seafood dishes well presented with good, helpful and unobtrusive service. Good selection of reasonably priced wines. Picturesque harbourside setting. The staff we found were particularly helpful and our delightful waitress even took us back to our hotel when no taxis were available and it was raining heavily. Thank you to all the staff... More

Good - no excellent - fish restaurant by the port. I have already done 2 reviews for Granville restaurants and I sound like a cracked record. They were all good and this one is included. It's best if you like fish - it is very fresh, the wine is not overpriced (in carafe) and the service was good. The spacing... More

Very nice comfortable restaurant with friendly efficient service. Food was very very good, especially the seafood. Excellent value for money would pay 3 times the price for such high quality and presented food in a large city.

I greatly recommend this restaurant for the quality of service and excellent food. We went there with no booking for a birthday and they were welcome with open arms even so the place was buzzing . The service of high quality with very good friendly staff. I would recommend the enormous wonderful seafood platter !!
