This is an excellent restaurant. The food is exceptional. We opted for the 'Intuition' 5 course tasting menu and were not disappoined. Every course surpassed the next in flavour, execution and attention to detail. We were especially impressed with the service, which was attentive and professional whilst also being very welcoming and friendly. Not in the least bit stuffy. Being foreigners, we were something of a novelty for the waiter, who explained that most tourists don't manage to secure a table, as they are generally booked up several weeks in advance. (I had booked 2 months ahead - having read the reviews :) ) As such, he seemed delighted to have the opportunity to practice his english. In short, if you are planning a trip to Caen, do make a special effort to book a table here. I would definitely go back.
