DINNER ON A FAMILY HOLIDAY

I really like going to this restaurant. The staff are friendly and the food is well prepared and there is a really good choice. We laughed away 3 hours in a flash. We had everything from Mussels to Steaks and of course we had galettes and crepes. The ice cream here aredelicious and the... read more

We decided to dine at Le Grillon based on the great reviews here on Trip Advisor, but we were disappointed. We did both option for a 3 course menu, but the food did not taste as delicious as I would have expected. My boyfriend was placed at the table in such way that he could look into the kitchen; he...

on holiday, we once again made a special journey to Ponterson to eat here. We were once again treated superbly and enjoyed an excellent meal. The staff are lovely and although very busy have a good sense of humour. It is always such a pleasure to dine in the lively atmosphere of this restaurant.

Stopped here for a cheeky couple of drinks after a cycle to Mont St. Michel. Nice welcome by the staff, lovely cold beers, and tables outside in the sun to observe the locals going about there business. Happy days.

You are served with a smile and you can order a good steak for a very reasonable price. The setting is cosy and the atmosphere relaxed. Good place if you are looking for a simple but enjoyable meal!

Called in here for a Sunday lunch. Popular place with the locals and we were given the last vacant table. From the varied menu my partner chose a generous portion of moules and frites whilst I had three lamb chops and frites. I was disappointed to find the accompanying 'ratatouille' was a small bowl of unpleasant tasting haricot beans in... More

Small unpretentious restaurant/creperie/bar serving good food at reasonable prices. The three course menu du jour at Euro16.80 is a bargain.... Fish soup and the roast duck were good. Portions were of a good size. Service quick and friendly, waiters have a sense of humour. Right on the main street, parking on the road. Good value, was busy on a Saturday... More
