Nice setting and decoration, very efficient service. Everything was tasty and fresh. I'd recommend choucroute de la mer and panacota with salted caramel which are on the 15 euro menu. Good value for money too.

A great meal in the restaurant at the facility of the La Cite de la Mer, the meal was as good as it gets, price reasonable and service great. Saved walking into town and coming back so we were able to enjoy our visit.

Excellent food in lovely surroundings. Great service from friendly attentive staff. We had the set 3 course lunch which was great value, generous portions and very very tasty, finishing off with a chocolate brownie to die for! Would considering going back to Cherbourg just to eat here!

This is a brilliant idea. Have a good quality restaurant in a tourist attraction and there's no need to leave and go elsewhere for lunch! Certainly a restaurant where a seafood starter includes oysters, langoustines and whelks is a great place. Reasonably priced Chablis as well and it was one of the best meals of the week away.

We ate here before visiting the attractions. The fish dish I had was pretty tasty. A selection of fish and seafood with couscous and broth. There was loads of couscous and I had to ask for more sauce. My husband had a burger. It was okay but it came with a side order of pork, the pork stunk sooooooo bad.... More

This is an enticing looking restaurant that let’s its customers down on all counts past first impressions. Normally, I would not complain about the lack of an English language menu, but this restaurant is situated in Cherbourg’s top tourist attraction visited by anglophone day-trippers (I estimate that 30-40% of visitors that day were British) – my pigeon French was, nevertheless,...
