“generous”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

September, so not too busy.Our starter was served too quickly as we'd only just been served our aperetif, which was a shame. Otherwise nice enough and plenty to eat.

“Decent Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We ate here twice during our stay in Arromanches. It wasn't bad, but nothing memorable. The service was prompt and nice enough. It's a large restaurant with a lot of volume, so it felt a little impersonal and rushed, which is uncommon for France. Still, it's a tourist town and most of the people who come here aren't interested in the hours-long French dining experience.

The food was good and basic. If you're looking for something quick, but substantial (i.e. more than just pizza or crepes), Brasserie Au 6 Juin is passable.

One thing to note: If you see a table on the outside terrace and that's where you want to sit, grab it. Don't wait for the staff to seat you there. We were polite enough to ask in advance and while we were busy asking, someone else sat at the table we wanted. Because our French isn't that great, we couldn't dispute that we had asked for the table ahead of the couple who simply took it.

“Two soups, a beer and a new mortgage”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This place was just OK. It was rather expensive for a relatively poorly prepared menu. It was value for money as the cheese sauce repeated on me for 48 hours...

“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Clearly this place gets uneven review but my experience here was great. We were in Arromanches-les-Bain in June, 22013. The menu was extensive but the seafood, steamed or grilled, seemed to be the best. Our server understood very little English but we used our serviceable French to translate the menu and point. It worked. Excellent deserts and after-lunch coffee. A bustling restaurant, I would recommend it and will return when there again.

How would you feel if someone came to your restaurant and spoke none of your language and expected you to figure it out for them? I understand a server coping an attitude after the umpteenth time. If you go to France, learn a little French or at least carry some kind of translator with you. Geez.

Historically, I believe the residents of some French towns remember Liberation Day and appreciate the sacrifice of 1944 even today, St. Mere Eglise was like that. Arronmanches was flattened by the Brits before they came ashore and with minimal Nazi presence. I understand they might feel differently, even though it was a long time ago. If you go on vacation to a foreign country, don't leave your sensibilities at home. Take the difficulties with a grain of salt, too, and you'll have a better trip.

“Simple but tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were part of a large group and seated in the banquet room upstairs. Salads, wine and water were already at the table and we were served a traditional chicken dish for lunch. Prompt, friendly service and clean restrooms (always a plus!).
