“Surprising good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

As we were a group of 8 then eating options become difficult without booking, especially on a Sunday. We saw this whilst walking through the town during Sunday and booked it for the same evening. It was lively and busy when we arrived and felt as if it could be a huge mistake or a great success! The lady and her waiter were real characters and once we settled in then we had an excellent time. Really good food at sensible prices and service was brilliiant. We eat very well and drank more that night than any of the others, so it must have been good!

“Not what we expected..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I booked my family in a party of 5 one child aged 5. into this restaurant I have to say this was a mistake. I was made to feel not wanted and we were a problem.to them. First we arrived told the lady we had a table booked for the 5 of us. she directed us to a table not saying a word and not coming back, we expected to see at least a menu. 15 Minutes later we were still waiting until I asked for a drink. The menu was the norm the food was normal nothing to write home about, the service was rubbish. I paid the bill and left, And yes No tip.
Before I go this was my 3rd visit to this place and my last.

“Fantastic and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Our hotel concierge recommended Fringale, and we've eaten there twice on two separate trips to Bayeux. It definitely caters to tourists but the service was friendly (they speak English) and the food reasonably priced. I had the Norman chicken and the Creme Brulee and have never been disappointed.
