Five of us eat here on a sailing trip. Very good service, food was excellent and good value for money, four of us had the 23 € menu which had very good choices.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Arrived late but staff were very accommodating. Main managers were a bit too formal. Good service but need to relax a bit.

“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

This restaurant doesn't look much from the outside, but it is excellent. The owners and staff could not be better and the food is incredibly good value and absolutely delicious. We ate here on the first night of our holiday touring around Normandy, and returned on the final night. They opened the restaurant early for us so we could have a relaxing dinner before going to the ferry. Where else would do that with a smile?

“A Great Evening - You Must Try This Restaurant!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

A small restaurant overlooking one of the marinas, simple decor, very attentive staff and excellent set menus as well as a la carte. The food was presented on the plates with style and the wine reasonably priced as well. They deserve being No 1 in Cherbourg.
