“We were very happy with the service and the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I have seen some bad reviews but our experience was very good. Our bus group arrived without warning followed by a second bus of school kids but in spite of that everyone was served reasonably promptly. The wait staff spoke enough English that we had no trouble. We both had something like “Cocque Monsieur” which was a grilled cheese sandwich with cheese melted on he outside. Someone else in our group had “Cocque Madam” which is the same thing with two fried eggs on top. One person ordered a chicken sandwich and it came on half a baguette, quite substantial. The place mats have a map of the D-Day landing beaches and the back has a coloring page for kids, a nice touch. There are also some photos and artifacts on the walls. I’d eat there again if we were in the area.

“Dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We had people tell us not to go here but on the Monday the 12th it and one other place was the only area in town to eat. My daughter and i when in and ordered, It was a bit like Fawlty Towers where i think the cook was the waiter also. We spoke a little French and this i felt helped us get our meals that little bit faster. The food was great, service was a tad cold.But then i when there for a meal not to become his best friend so all good from my point of view.

“Avoid”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

I can only speak of there restaurant. Tourist ripoff. Worst moules marinières I have ever tasted. Obviously microwaved. Dry to the point of being crisp. Others of the party left most of their choices too. Avoid.

“Rude staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

My mother in law and myself went for lunch at this hotel whilst my partner and his father visited the musuem. We we greeted by a young man that seemed in an awful rush even though it was clearly not busy. After ordering drinks we asked for a menu, the young man threw the reciept for the drinks at us and stormed off. As we were discussing paying for drinks and going else where for lunch a elder man came out with the menus and was apologetic. We ordered lunch and was pleasently suprised by fresh mussels. Shame about the staff ! Arromanches town is well worth the visit though.
