“Drink on!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Great spot to try some amazing French wines... do not be intimidated English-speakers! All those who work there speak fluent English and help you as much as possible to have an enjoyable night with amazing wine and food.

Enjoy!

“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Upon our arrival in Bayeux from Paris we wanted to grab a light lunch before commencing with our Normandy tour. Our tour guide, Mathias LecLere - owner of D-Day Guided Tours (OUTSTANDING tour guide) - suggested we eat at Le Volet qui Penche. It was right by our hotel (Hotel Villa Lara - a must stay when in Bayeux) and he said it would be perfect for a quick bite/cheese platter. Well a quick bite became a 1.5 hour dining and wine extravaganza...we loved it and its owner, Pierre. Pierre has a very charming and welcoming personality and we found him very engaging and entertaining. He treated us like guests in his home. If we didn't have to head out to St Mere Eglise we would have stayed even longer; we were that comfortable in this quaint setting. In fact, as we were leaving Pierre ran up to me, tugged at my arm and presented me with a gift...a bottle of Bordeaux for us to take with us!! There is no doubt we will dine here again during our next visit to Bayeux. Thank you, Pierre!

“A Great Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We stumbled across this bistro while exploring the streets of Bayeux. Pierre was a very welcoming host to my wife and two teenage sons. Very eager to make our time in his beautiful wine bar a night to remember. Food was devine and the wine even more! My sons are still talking about our great night we had. For my family this was a truly French experience.

“Wonderful last meal in France!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We had just finished a D-Day tour and our guide Mathias (D-Day Guided tours - a must do by the way!) recommended Le Volet qui Penche. I was traveling with my ten and fifteen year old kids and we were exhaused. This was perfect and the owner Pierre-Henri was delightful. He made us feel like we were guests in his home, joked with the kids and gave us a great table overlooking the river. The food and wine were excellent and I brought home two bottles of what I had for dinner. What a wonderful way to end our time in France. French food, wine and hospitality at its best!

“Memorable evening in Bayeux”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining here in April 2013. It is small, but very charming, and the owner just delightful. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine with our delicious meal but Pierre-Henri made our evening so special. He is warm, funny and makes you feel as though you are in the home of and old friend. A truly memorable evening! Thank you Pierre-Henri...we hope to see you again someday!
