Landing in that restaurant after a 4 hours drive to have dinner with children... The quality of the food and service are really poor. I would not recommend this place.

This place has been drifting downhill for several years, we have been supporters for 10years. It used to be on our top 10 list but our visits have been much reduced of late. However a new young manager Adrian has taken over and we were more than pleasantly surprised. Good efficient service with charm. The food was good but not... More

Three of us had dinner and received the best service we've experienced for a long while. My steak was cooked to perfection, my wife's duck was also a treat and our friend's sole was filleted expertly at the table and was delicious. Desserts were also very good, wine was, well what do you expect in France! A complimentary calvados polished... More

Running my eye down the other reviews, 'average food' and 'poor service' seem to be the general experience. My fish soup was very tasty and hot, and I enjoyed it. But it was well below the excellent fish soup at the Brasserie Deux Ponts. The young man at the entrance was friendly and polite, and the situation by the quay... More

Just spent the Bank Holiday weekend here. We have been visiting Honfleur for over 20 years and absolutely love it here. It is a place that has literally stood still and is just so beautiful. This is our first time in a long time without our 2 children visiting with us. There is so much to do and see here... More

We were seated on a nice table overlooking the Bassin and all was fine until we came to order our food and wine. My wife is fluent in French, so it was not the language it was just the attitude of the female waitresses and the male sommelier. They just had no level of professionalism and looked bored and disinterested.... More

Let me set the scene... the last night of our holiday (spent further south, staying at a family home) and we had an all too brief stay once more in the beautiful and ever-charming Honfleur before our return home. Having enjoyed a delightful lunch, wonderful Normandy ambience and a super apartment we wanted a lovely experience and good food in... More

We had lunch here. It was a bit stuffy a place. No real English speakers and they didn’t really try. But beautiful view of the harbor. Over priced. I had escargot, traditional with garlic and butter. Fish dishes were nice. This was a bit underwhelming. Would not go back.

A well located restaurant alongside the old harbour. Food was reasonably good, but the restaurant had a very tired feel about it. Although not particularly busy, the service was indifferent. The 3 staff on duty seemed more interested in talking amongst themselves than attending to diners.
