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.

It's always difficult to choose when there are so many restaurants largely catering for tourists who only visit once. We took the chance on this harbour side restaurant on the basis of the food we saw other diners with as we strolled along and happily we had made a good decision. Excellent seafood and fish, good, attentive service in a... More

We were on a day trip to Honfleur to show a friend what my wife and I love about this place. It is not a place where most of the staff can speak English, BUT they do wish to give the people there the best experience possible. We did not have reservations nor were we particularly aware of where we... More

I'm sure we would never eat here, when there are so many other options available, but in the afternoon it's the sunny side of the harbor and the prices are reasonable.

Pretty disappointing meal. It took forever to be served our oysters and magrets de canard à l'orange salad, the latter of which they changed without asking to magrets de canard aux fois gras. The magrets were thickly sliced and the fois gras was tasteless. At least the oysters were good. Then, after a long wait, we received our "gambas flambée... More

Just had a meal here for the last night of our holiday in France. Service friendly but food very disappointing. Despite ordering different main course both came with identical accompaniments. Flavour lacking. Deserts very poor for French restaurant. Wish they had a smoking free outside area. Expected more from authentic French cuisine.

We had a good meal here. Reasonably priced and the quality was very acceptable - though note Michelin starred quality, it was certainly gastronomic. My fish soup was superb and the white fish my wife had (sea bream) was fine. Good wine list. Slightly living on 'past glories' perhaps but overall, this restaurant can be recommended. We didn't have any... More

So, we ate the previous night at L'Écailleur. And tried to repeat but found it was the night off. So we ate at Au Vieux Honfleur despite the several disparaging comments on TA about the service. Our experience was quite the opposite and found the host to be friendly and attentive. The food on the €43 fixed price menu was... More
