5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The staff was very inviting and the owner was friendly and had a sense of humour which is not
a bad thing given the type of business she was in,we had a wonderful evening and would return
the food was very good and the wine was excellent.

Tous le monde etait tres sympathique ce qui nous menait a avoir des conversations
intereresante et informatif meme avec d'autres gens a table autour de nous.Tres
belle soirée et pas d'ehesitation a recommander cet endroit

“Vastly better food and value then that offered by the Harbour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

An American woman writing on here had eulogised on the merits of Les Fontaines. She was right to do so. This is 5 mins from the Harbour but so so much better for it. Perhaps they have to work for it or maybe just reputation? Almost entitley French clientele a good sign. Walking up you might be of put at 7 pm when service just starting as on one side a busy beer restaurant on other a cinema. Low kerb appeal. However by 7, 15 full of the locals and no wonder. Great food service and atmosphere and superb value. The Harbour eateries are a total rip off in the main. We had traveled from Glasgow and loved it as did it two sons aged 10 and 5.

“Excellent food and a great welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

The food and drink is reasonably priced and the staff are most welcoming and attentive. Nothing is too much trouble. There is something for everyone on the menu. Although it is not in the centre of Honfleur by le Vieux Bassin, it is only 100 metres away. I would certainly recommend it to anyone intending to visit Honfleur.

“A mixed review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This restaurant was recommended. On arrival it seemed busy and buzzy. My entree of prawns in their shells with a dipping sauce were fresh and tasty but unexciting. My main of moules was dry and tasteless, so much so that I left most of them. Dessert was an ile flottante which was pleasant. The cider I chose was delicious.

“Excellent food at a reasonable price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Excellent food and a comparatively reasonable price. Try the fixed price menu with the "assortment of sellfish [sic]" and the salmon with onions and capers. Tho chocolate mousse is great!
