An oasis for hungry couples who only have one night in Caen and don’t want to waste it. Perfectly laid out despite the restrictions of COVID, it was cosy and welcoming. I had the faux filet, she had the rôti de coeur d’aloyau, blissfully delicious,...washed down with a velvety Pinot noir. Our table was served by the attentive and knowledgable Kiki who made it his job to see everything was perfect for two strangers to his city. Boeuf and Cow your reputation is secure. Thank you for an evening we’ll never forget.More

I have lived in Caen for 6 years now and this is hands down my #1 choice for food in town. Great food, people, and location at a very reasonable price. Definitely check it out if you haven’t already. 100% recommend it!

Most of the meat is local produce and it tastes amazing. The French fries are also very tasteful. It felt like you were dining in a very classy place but laid back at the same time. Whenever I will visit Caen again, I will definitely...return.More

We had a nice dinner during Christmas holiday time. Most waiters are professional and friendly. I had spring roll type vire sausage and cheese inside, followed by tripe a la mode Caen, which is the local speciality (if offal is O.K. for you, delicious). Both...were very good. My family enjoyed grilled Camanbert and smoked salmon, followed by prefectly medium fillet steak. Looks this restaurant is very popular, soon after we started having our meal, most tables became full around 19:30, so booking in advance is advisable even on a cold, rainy, miserable winter dayMore

Hi. I am not sure whether they do have gluten free options. What I can say is that the head waiter was very helpful when it came to the menu options and meeting our needs.
