We were three french girls at this restaurant. Firstable, the food was ok, not so bad. However the waiter was macho and rude. He rush us to order. All the other waiters was also rude and terrible. We even saw som rude behaviour with the restaurant next door. Really, pick an other restaurant, don't go there it was very awful.

I visited this restaurant yesterday for lunch and I have to say that I have never been in a such restaurant where service can be soo bad... First you have a lot to get the waiter then to order then to get the food and the bill.. If you want to stay 3 hours for one starter and 2 main... More

We chose this restaurant amongst the very many that line the quay because of its inclusion of a fish dish, filet de lieu, rice and vegetables. Service was very slow, forceful persuasion was enforced to try to get us to chose from the expensive main menu, but we resisted.The starter of goat's cheese was delicious, if lean on quantity. Then... More

Can't believe we stayed in this restaurant! Another couple walked out and wish we had too! We had arrived that day in Honfleur and we were tired. Service non existent, slow, unhelpful staff, food warm not hot and a generally horrible experience. This place should be closed down and new waiting staff found and also a chef would be a... More

We wandered into this restaurant, eyes open, knowing that the whole strip along the vieux bassin was a tourist trap. They still failed to meet our expectations. The food wasn't that bad - a salad nicoise shared between us to start and then moules mariniere and frites. The waiter was offhand and uncommunicative although everything appeared reasonbly quickly. Having finished... More

like many other reviews there are many restaurants to choose from in a lovely area. unfortunately we chose this one in particular. The waitress, seeming annoyed we wanted a table during one of many of her fag breaks seated us. we chose a seafood platter, which took ages to come. the boulotts or whelks, were full of grit or sand,...

So many restaurants, so little time to chose. We wanted lunch before the crowds became unbearable, and every restaurant along the harbor has someone beckoning us to have a seat. After initially selecting La Cabane du Pecheus we had second thoughts. The host was aloof and not especially responsive to my request we be seated out of the sun. But... More

Comically awful. Not sure where to start but this was the worst meal of my life. We sent back 2 out of 4 dishes. How can you get oven chips so wrong and the fish was well past it's best. Sadly pouring cold cream over it completely failed to disguise this. That's to say nothing of the utterly miserable service... More

I love Honfleur and its vibrant atmosphere. We visited this restaurant in pouring August rain and positioned ourselves inside the canopy, looking out on the wet marina. There were not many diners that lunchtime in Honfleur, due to the weather. The waiting staff just stood around chatting. They looked annoyed when I flagged them for any assistance. They needed reminding... More

If there was zero star I would've given it. Horrible service. Horrible food. My 1 year old son got sick and is still sick from the fish soup we ate there. The waiter is amazingly rude. (the guy with a lot of hair gel and a massive nose) I want to punch his nose actually. Incredible they are still in... More
