Excellent 4 course meal in a peaceful setting with good service . Would have paid a lot more for similar in U.K. Hotel is only 5 min away from the Port in a pretty village so makes a good stop prior to getting the ferry.

A charming hotel with different size rooms opening onto a patio, just 300m from a delightful pedestrian walkway, on the banks of the Caen - Ouistreham canal. Riva Bella is a very attractive restaurant serving a vast range of genuinely delicious dishes. Fine fish and lobster with coral sauce.
