We had ridden the train to Bayeux, and we're all turned around. Pierre Henri must have recognized our glazed expressions and offered to help. We ended up eating and drinking excellent wine at his Bistrot several times. A perfect introduction to the charm and beauty of Bayeux! And now a friend

We stopped here for a glass of wine, had such a good time talking with the owner, the waiter and the other guests that we returned for dinner. The wine list is extensive, the menu is limited, interesting wine shop inside.

Loved this place so much I went twice! Once in the afternoon for a glass of wine. Sat by a window in the back over the tiny river. Lovely view. Enjoyed some quiet time to write some postcards home. Also went for an early dinner one night. They seem to only have maybe one option for a true dinner but... More

We were in Bayeux for 3 days and walked by this restaurant each day. Tonight we decided to try it out. We had the plat du jour for 18 euros (each day they have a plat du jour). The dinner was excellent. We had a main course of cod, appetizer that was a phyllo pastry stuffed with Camembert cheese and... More

We walked in at around 6:30 pm. Although we did not have reservations, we did get a table. Most of the tables were reserved however. The restaurant offers one meal of the day (appetizer, main course, and dessert) which was displayed at the bar. Other offerings included onion soup, various platters of cheese, meat or a combo of the two.... More

These guys are proud of their food and wine choices and well they should be. Each item we ordered, cider, wine, snails, meat and cheese plate was outstanding. We purchased calvadas after trying several in the town veggie market and liked the owner enough we searched them out at dinner time and got the last table of the night. MAKE... More

We wandered down a narrow street and found this unique wine bar. It is small and most people had reservations but we got seats. We were served wine without looking at a menu for prices,and had charcuterie and cheese. The bill was much less than we expected.

We tripped over this place on our way to the ferry and had a very tasty light lunch. The Snails were very tasty and the accompanying red burgundy, recommended by our host was lovely. Great place, only 4 stars because we only had snacks.

We stumbled across this fabulous little place in Bayeux last week. What a surprise! The food was amazing as was the wine. The host was very helpful in helping us with the wine choices. What an amazing little find. I would very much like to visit again soon.

OMG! We were so fortunate to happen upon Pierre Henri's restaurant. It was truly a highlight if our stay in Bayeux. Not only was he fun and welcoming, the dinner was divine. Please do not NOT go here. It was a great experience and one that will make us want to return.
