Service and view were great but the food was truly awful. Everything tasted like it had been cooked on a very unclean grill. The steak was literally 'as tough as old boots', the cod inedible. The chicken was as average as a chicken dish could be and the sea bass had some weird congealed bits on the skin (although it... More

Given our poor judgement of, for once, choosing our lunch place for ambience instead of previous visitors records, we had a late lunch here. Poor food. Poor kitchen skills. Poor ingredients. What a disappointment. Langoustines were not fresh, choucroute witch tasted like old mans finger, don't get me started on the gambas. Avoid!

We had lunch here - local speciality Moules & Frites - it was delicious. Staff were very attentive and efficient, as this restaurant is on a very busy thoroughfare, so they try to move people on quickly, but they didn't rush us at all. Beautiful setting overlooking the harbour and great place to people watch and relax. We ate at... More

Don't expect miracles foodwise. We went here because they had a table free with a good view. We took moules cambembert, small size moules, but in total enough and good combination with the cambembert.

This is one of the most beautiful French coastal towns and this restaurant like so many others is on the main street facing the water; we had a wonderful lunch and enjoyed spending much time enjoying the scene and people watching.

We were in Honfleur for a cruise ship stop and while walking the harbor area with friends, decided on L'Abricotier. This was strictly a blind, pot luck selection. We speak no French and the young waiter was helpful in the selection of our meals. The view (and Honfleur as a whole) was magnificent. The food was average, the price high... More

We went for lunch here on a Saturday and arrived at noon on the dot to ensure we got a prime seat. The mussels and oysters were divine, the service efficient and friendly. My fish dish wasn't superb but the atmosphere and starter made up for it. Worth a visit!

Food was bad. Starter was barely defrosted. Mussels were shrivelled up and tasteless. But the worse was that they overcharged us for the wine and for the food. Clearly on purpose. No apology. Complete rip-off. Never eat there.

We just had drinks here mid morning. The waitress was very polite and friendly. Good place to sit and people watch and of course the harbour with all the boats is a few feet away.
