We had wonderful meals at several placed in Bayeux, but without question the favorite for our entire group was the L'Alchimie. This is a wonderful restaurant attentively watched over by a husband and wife team who are anxious to ensure you have a fantastic dining experience. The food, both in preparation and in taste, was outstanding. Our friends had the... More

We were welcomed soon after we made our way to the restaurant, and after checking ou the menu, both opted for the fixed price dinner. The food was very good (we especially liked the Camembert roasted with Normandy Cheese, calvados, apple and bacon), and the service was acceptable, although it was busy for one person. Our table was close enough... More

This small restaurant has an inviting atmosphere, great food and great prices. We were directed to L'Alchimie by our hotel and we found the restaurant inviting and pleasant. It is a small space that provides an intimate atmosphere without being crowded or loud. Most of the guests on our evening appeared to be local patrons. I had the roasted Red... More

A small restaurant that fills up quickly, so make a reservation or get there early. The duck and the steak with foie gras were both amazing. We went back for a second night and might have for a 3rd but it was closed as we were there in the low season.

Nice & pleasant atmosphere. The food is very tasty. The salad is an unusual one. You'll not be able to identify all the ingredients it contains.

All restaurants in Bayeux were excellent but this one had a prix fix lunch that was great at a reasonable price. Wait staff was charming and friendly. Desert was tasty.

We had booked a table for four and were offered a choice of table by the manageress, who was attentive and friendly throughout our meal. We sat in the rear of the restaurant which was fine, but should have probably taken the table in the front as we were by the kitchens and toilet (not as bad as it sounds!).... More

Very recommended. We made a reservation without knowing much about the menu or price, but we were surprised by the exceptional taste of the meals and the nice service. Everything was delicios and worth the money.

We had a memorable meal at L'Alchimie. I had a duck main dish that was one of the best we had had anywhere. It was tender and delicately flavored. The restaurant is small so make a reservation. The decor is charming and casual; the service was friendly and attentive. The portions were larger than I had expected from a French... More
