Moules (mussels) and fries very good 13.80€. Huge salad with bacon, tomatoes, and fried potatoes 11.90€ was delicious. The cream puff desert with ice cream and hot chocolate 8€ was awesome. Cozy inside, earnest, hospitable wait staff. Food came out hot.

Walked in based on menu choice, price and number of people already in. The food, service and overall cost were all good. A carafe of wine was exceptional value. Friendly staff who didn't rush us at any time, but responded when needed. Nothing to fault it.

The restaurant is family run and the waitress was a daughter of the owner. She was very friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed our dinner very much. We had dined at three places in Bayeux and enjoyed this place the most.

Had a lovely dinner here with my family- great food and good price. Lovely waitress who was sympathetic to my poor French but coped with it all the same. Would recommend this place for a lovely family meal. Great wine and cider too.

We visited this restaurant based upon is perceived popularity when we were at the restaraunt next door on the previous night. Regrettably it was a big mistake!! The food was without doubt the worst we have eaten in all of our visits to France. Food over priced and poor quality. Drinks over priced. Definitely will not return.

We visited this restaurant last night, walked in off street and were seated straight away. Service was good and we had drinks served quickly. There were eight of us, four adults and four children. We ordered food and I have to say I was very very disappointed at the quality of the children's food from the kids menu. The 'chicken'... More

A warm welcome. My husband and I have similar taste so chose, onion soup, poulet Alec sauce Normande and tart tatin. I questioned the Chardonnay wine, was it oaky? . The waiter said French Chardonnay was very nice and immediately brought me a sample. He was correct. The meal was very tasty and hot. Well cooked also. Would eat here... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and amazing desserts. We chose the classic Normand dishes and they were wonderful. The atmosphere is very cozy... There is outdoor seating but it was raining and we were inside in the homey dining room. The service was friendly and they happily tolerated our poor French which made us feel welcome.
