A great spot for lunch!

We had lunch here on Monday, Sept. 7th, 2015 after touring the cathedral. It has a terrific location and neat views. We ate outside. And, while I know this sounds crazy and maybe a little 'juvenile' - they had THE BEST french fries we have EVER had! (sorry, McD's !) The rest of our lunch was... read more

Only place open in Bayeux so we had no choice. I have been longing for oysters from this region of France as I am informed they are the best. Very disappointed as I was served No 3 oysters the same I had eaten in Montmartre but were not in the same league. So next was chicken with mash and veggies,... More

I dined here on 2 nights, a varied selection of foods, well cooked and an excellent selection of wines. What struck me as something special was the outside tables had blankets for the customers, this demonstrated that the management thought about their customers.

I enjoyed dinner here. Much better than another restaurant in town that cost twice as much. French fries are really good, steak was well seasoned, pasta carbinara sauce could be a bit thicker, but taste was great.

We expected better French Onion soup from a restaurant in the Normandie area of France, but not to be. The atmosphere was not uniquely French, in fact it similar to many European restaurants.

We arrived in town about 3:30 in the afternoon and asked our around for restaurant recommendations. We heard from a few people that Le Garde Manger may be the only place open at this hour. Our stuffed buckwheat pancake was bland. The chicken in the ceasar salad was dry and the ceasar dressing had a very odd taste. We made... More

We had a very nice lunch here with excellent service. Not related to this, my wife hurt her knee and walking became a no go. For dinner I went back to see about a take out. Our waiter for lunch, Ricardo, was the best! They had no take out boxes, but he and the chef teamed up to provide me... More

Since we were staying in the hotel, and arrived at a late lunch time, we had lunch at the hotel's restaurant. Ordered pizzas and frites. Just OK. Were not impressed.
