Lovely evening with beautifully presented and prepared meals and fantastic service. Great if you love fish, but they also offer lovely steaks and vegetarian meals. A large choice of meals in the a la carte menu and also some fixed price menus. The owner was very attentive and friendly and his team were all professional and take care you offer... More

We ate here on out last night in Hornfleur. My wife is vegetarian but I love seafood. This can make things difficult eating so close to the sea ! Not here - they have a gazpacho starter and Noodle main which my wife loved. For my part I had the crab cocktail followed by a lovely sea bream fillet. Overall... More

Honflur has no shortage of choice as far as restaurants, but we were drawn to this one because of the location. In a beautiful square, next to the fishermen church, it was much calmer than the waterfront. Really enjoyed an excellent meal which was reasonably priced and beautifully presented.

Restaurant La Lieutenance is always our first port of all in Honfleur. The owner and his wife feel like old friends we've been there so often. The food, the staff, the service are all superb. Some may regard it as unfortunate, but I love the old clock in the bell tower in the Square, chiming the quarters and repeating the... More

After having checked the multitude of offers of the restaurants around the Old Bassin in Honfleur, the menu of La Lieutenance appeared to be the one offering a nice value for money. It's not located on the Old Bassin but it's facing the vey cute and delicate wooden church of St Catherine. The menus offered are varied (even offering vegetarian... More

We had visited here many moons before and decided to revisit . Quality of the food had gone down a notch or two but its still good. A less touristy location than the restaurants around the harbour and is probably of higher quality . Ambience is good and service is friendly

Please add a GOOD rating, for that is what this restaurant was. We choose the €22,- (3 course dinner) and it was just lovely. Good portions. Nice setting. Beautiful tables. Wine made it expensive. Tarte tatin was too cold. I really thought it was quickly heated up. But we had a lovely evening

Perfect for us on a cold and misty night. Inside felt luxurious. Very good food. We liked La Lieutenance so much we wanted to go back. If only our visit would have been longer!
