“All round good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This is a very good quality restaurant in every respect: location overlooking the vieux port; set menus offering good value as well as a la carte menu; thoughtful and interesting cuisine; smart decor; excellent food and service. Book ahead to reserve a table with a view.

“Best meal in Honfleur”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We had dinner in this restaurant with our friends. It was excellent in every aspect - friendly staff - very tasty menu and not expensive given the quality and presentation. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends.

“cosy place with nice view on the vieux port”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a nice place with relax atmosphere and a nice view on the port.
there is some interesting creativity with the meal (mash potatoes with lime: very tasty)
Price are reasonnable for the quality of the food
Unfortunately the seafood plate was desapointing surprising for a restaurant with such a name (oyster sheller).
Ask for a table close to the window with view on the port
Be careful stop serving at 9pm

“Two set menus. Both very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Two set menus for about €30 and €40. Food very good and the service was excellent. We didn't book but got a warm welcome most tables were reserved. Food was well cooked and well presented. 1/2 bottle of wine and some aperitif , coffee was about €100. Not the cheapest but good value and good food in Honfleur.

“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

First time visit to Honfleur and this restaurant hit the right cord. The service was warm and friendly and the food was very good. Maybe a tad expensive for lunch, however worth every penny. Presentation of food was good and didn't feel turned out like some of the other more touristic harbor side restaurants.
