We were seated at the best seat in the house with breathtaking views of the port, echoing Boudin's & Monet's canvases. Interesting mix diners identical to D-day forces: English, American, Canadian cooked & served by graceful French staff ( well they didn't fight they had to do something they know...) Food was superb: fresh produce, excellent flavours This place is... More

Ok, so if you're looking for proficiency Honfleur affords you lots of choices. This is one of those places where the the thing to do is not be bothered. The restaurant is small and we arrived on a wet and windy night- the only reason we got in was that someone was leaving and when we got in we had... More

My family and I are finishing a wonderful 2 week vacation in France. For the most part our experience has been terrific, but our experience at this particular restaurant stands out as being especially alarming and insulting. It is a very small restaurant and our party of 4 was promptly seated. However, we sat for 60 min watching as tables... More

We went there on a Thursday evening following an advice of our guesthouse. Long story short the food was delicious. I had porc with mustard and my wife a salad. The atmosphere was average: too small, too many table, so you hear your neighboor talking all the time. I though it is quite expensive (25€ for the porc and 20€... More

Average quality. Location is easy to get to. Service was just acceptable - we paid cash so we wouldn't have to wait for a credit card to be handled.

Anne-Marie, the very nice owner, is cooking everything from scratch, including the bread. This cosy tiny place (only 8 tables of 4) is charming and offers few dishes, but it's because it's homemade and everything is very tasty. The size is quite big and the desserts are amazing (I recommend the lemon pie). It's better to book in order to... More

Great dinner overlooking the harbor. The portions here are enormous and they warn you ahead of time. We should have split everything! Most of the table had duck breast and loved it. I had smoked salmon which was lovely. We were seated at a window overlooking the harbor and also provided some fresh air on a warm night.

We found this gem of a restaurant on a quiet street above the harbor. An intimate space with a few tables, Anne Marie served us a beautiful lunch.

This tiny restaurant, with all food cooked by the owner, was on a list of recommendations at our short break accommodation. We had a phone number for booking so didn't experience the same problem as some others. First impressions were good, with a quirky but cosy interior, although we were confused about the dishes available on the blackboards. Prices were... More

Les Bistrot de Artists is a tiny 7 table restaurant overlooking the harbor in Honfleur. The only thing better than the view is the food. It is by far the absolute best meal I have had in France, no kidding. The owner does it all- cooks, serves and is a wonderful hostess. Since she does it all herself the service... More
