Had a delightful meal with my husband and friends. Limited but wonderful menu. Small restaurant where you feel more like a guest in someone's home than a large corporate restaurant. Eclectic but traditional gourmet French food. Upper moderate cost.

My wife and I had a great dinner at this restaurant. The highlights were the gazpacho for a starter. Wow, that was good! Everything else was great and the service was perfect. Very nice couple running this establishment and I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Bayeux.

Had a fantastic meal here in early August. Chef and his wife who run the restaurant accommodated Our late booking with an outside table, despite being full inside. Food was both excellent and excellent value for money. Particularly enjoyed the Camembert and calvados starter, beef main and Normandy tart. Wonderful! We would not hesitate to eat there agiain.

This restaurant was recommended both bye have Butterfield and Robinson and by Trippet advisor. It was as described. The service was impeccable outside seating was available and charming. The wine list was small but appropriate for the dishes that were served. We had a Gigongas with duck and prawns. The presentations were masterful. The deck was a little tough, but... More

After a day of traveling we stopped in just as they opened to grab a table for 4. As we got started with our meal, we noticed the owner turning away several customers...so we took that as a good indication! We all enjoyed out meals very much! Great little restaurant.

First dinner in Bayeux at this adorable restaurant. Great menu with some fixed price options. We ate all over the menu .. the tiramisu, profiteroles, Camembert, veal, beef .. like I said, all over the place. Had a gorgeous Loire Valley white. Service was fantastic -- excellent English and very attentive. We sat outside, which was great for people watching... More

Although small and fully booked on this Saturday evening we didn't feel at all crowded. Two of us ate home cooked foie gras and baked cambembert, followed by duck's breast and red mullet with chocolate crème brûlée and lemon tart for desert - all perfectly cooked. The service was charming and helpful. An excellent dinner.

This is a small restaurant we discovered and on the strength of other positive reviews we ate and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The restaurant filled to capacity but this did not detract from the service. Our needs were attended with good cheer and meals were well paced. Food was delicious and very well priced and the wines which were recommended... More
