I had the most delicious cod seated on a bed of perfectly prepared risotto here last week. The site is lovely, service friendly, with easy access to nearby parking in busy Honfleur. With so many resturants to choose from this one is well worth your...More

Also a recommendation from our hotel. We needed reservations as they get really busy right at 7:00 pm. Very good and I highly recommend this restaurant while in Honfleur. Covered outside dinning did not have the same feel as a sidewalk restaurant..

We both had the menu at 26Euros. The food was tasteless & badly cooked (fish really over-cooked). When I asked whether the Chef was the "usual one" (we were a Tuesday night) & complained about our poor meal, I was given a blank look and...More

Walking around the perimeter of Honfleur, one might be slightly disappointed to see very over priced restaurants that have virutally the same seafood. We read just about every menu from the harbor area to the hill by the church. We stopped at La Grenouuille because...More
