After reading the numerous reviews on trip advisor we decided this was definitely a place to visit. As a family of 4 with 2 very small children we made a reservation for early evening before exploring honfleurs shops and harbour front. On arriving at the restaurant it was quiet and we were given a choice of seating. Not before long the place was very busy and custom was being turned away. We were greeted by a lovely lady who spoke a little broken English but this did not stop her from ensuring we had a lovely experience. We ordered from the set menu of €22 euro per person and for first course I had the seafood selection and my husband the fish soup. Both were delicious. For mains I had the trio of fish and my husband the monk fish kebab in saffron sauce. Again these were delicious and both highly recommended. The 3rd course is a cheese course and we were give a choice of a number of traditional french cheeses including Camembert and livarot. Finally pudding. I ordered the mystique which was a delicious ice cream sat on a small meringue covered in small chopped nuts. My husband had the chocolate profiteroles which were smothered in a hot chocolate sauce and once again delicious.
The restaurant does have a children's menu but this is limited so we decided to order from the €15.50 fixed menu and shared it between the 2. This was not a problem and the restaurant brought out extra plates and small cutlery for our toddler. The children had mussels in cream sauce followed by half roast chicken and finished with pear tarte. Again lovely but would highly recommend the mussels.
Our overall experience of this restaurant was fantastic. The service is personal and very attentive despite the language barrier. We were made to feel very welcome. The children were made a fuss off and the 2 and 1/2 hour visit felt like we had only been there an hour.
Would definitely recommend this place if you want delicious food that is not over priced (like so many other restaurants in the area) and fantastic service.
