“The slowest service ever in France”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Admittedly it was raining quite heavily, there were crowds in town to see Le Tour de France and watch the free pop concert so the restaurant was quite full. After a seat change due to noisy children there was a wait of 40 minutes to be served a beer, no sign of an amuse-gueule in the interim, then another 10 minutes went by before the fish soup arrived. In all for a straight forward 3 course meal it took over 2 hours. The actual food was quite good without being exceptional though I was served a more expensive wine than I ordered. The staff were actually quite pleasant but seemed somewhat overwhelmed by events. The expression headless chickens came to mind. I certainly wouldn't risk it here again.

“much better than the average French restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2010

We go to France 6 times a year and have found the standard of food at restaurants has deteriorated a lot. This restaurant was nothing exceptional, but better than we expected for the price, and we were pleasantly surprised. It had been recommended by residents of Fecamp which is why we chose it in a row of restaurants. We had the menu de terroir, 19euros, with a carafe of wine. Very good mussels, salmon on roasted vegetables and a dessert of fresh pineapple in a rum and caramel sauce with ice cream which was very good. Would return, which is high praise for us.
