“Nice meal at a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Spent our last dinner at Cap 42 and weren't disappointed. Beef Carpaccio, Sea Bass and Tarte Tatin were all excellent (25 Euro deal). My wife had the Salmon and she enjoyed her's as well. It was a relatively busy night but the service was good. The atmosphere is relaxed and the people watching was great. Can't beat being at the water's edge.

Some of the earlier negative reviews may reflect how they respond during the busy season but have to say that this was one of our better meal experiences on our 5 night visit.

Had a nice meal here, fish soup was excellent not sure what the other reviewer ate as it was not like a dirty nappy. Rest of meal was very nice, mussels tasted very fresh.

“The worst restaurant in Honfleur”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

If you want to visit the worst restaurant where the service is shocking the food finally arrives on chipped plates and doesn't taste good, the house wine is appalling and you pay for the privilege then go to Cap 42 on the marina front. The worst restaurant in Honfleur

“nice location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

WE chose the 18 euro set menu. The starters were good. My main, chicken in Normande (cream ) sauce was lovely. My wifes fish was not good. The deserts very basic.
Its a cheap (by location standards restaurant). Honfleur is a really busy tourist place. Better to travel to an outside village to get good food.The service was good Very tiny wc up ricketty stairs!

“Act in haste, repent at leisure.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We arrived in Honfleur hungry and not sure where to go for dinner as we had not had time to do any research beforehand. Tummies grumbling and rain pouring, we made a quick decision in order to get away from the storm that was raging. This proved our biggest mistake as we found ourselves at Cap 42 which provided us with vile food of poor quality. We had been told that we would get excellent seafood in Honfleur...and maybe we would have had we chosen to go elsewhere. Instead we got tasteless mussels and sea bream which gave its life fruitlessly as it was not enjoyed at all. The fish soup, which we had as a starter, made me want to be sick and I've seen nicer smelling nappies! Overall, a disappointing visit and I would never return.
