“Ish!!!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Undecided on this place. We only had lunch snacks (croque Monsieurs), which weren't great except for one of us had a crepe. The full meals passing us look good, particularly the lobster. Would visit again for one of their full meals. Value not bad considering the seafront location in Arromanches.

“Ate there every night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We enjoyed the food and the staff, they were very attentive and polite, placemats were paper with a map of the area on one side and a picture for the children to colour in on the back. Menu was varied, the usual starters, meat, fish, lobster, that you could chose from the tank, omelettes, there was a menu of the day, three courses, for 13.90 euro and another menu for 16.90 euro, staff spoke good English and would alter the menu to suit you if possible. Fabulous baguettes filled with wonderful fillings and chips great value, and then there was the crepes say no more!

“It was food and they were open...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Most places seemed to be closed so our choice of where to go was limited. The food was okay... By that I mean it was edible.
It's certainly not the type of food you taste and start planning your return visit.
It was plain and uninspiring, but we were hungry, so just got on with it.
The service was rushed and left us with the feeling that the serving staff wanted to go home. We were in and out in under 40 minutes... And back to our accommodation by 8pm.
I really think there is better in the town, so this will remain down the 'return' list.

“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.
