4 of s visited this restaurant in Honfleur and were so impressed. It is situated facing the harbour and this lovely town had lovely weather as well which of course helped. 3 of us had the Moules Mariniere ( mussels in a large cooking pot) served with bread and Frites for a very reasonable price. The atmosphere was great. It... More

These were interspersed with excellent appetisers . The main course of Normandy pork was delicious, good selection of 3 local cheeses and rounded off with baked apple in filo pastry. Well done to...

A charming restaurant. An absolutely delightful and relaxed Sunday lunch on our wedding anniversary. Very good food rather redolent of the simple quality France used to provide in spades. I think every other customer was French in this gorgeous but touristy town. Service by a waitress named Valerie was excellent: friendly and professional. Highly recommended.

You need to book in advance ( we booked Thursday lunchtime for the last free table in the evening) to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and great food. Would definitely go again.

We had a 3 course dinner and everything was very delicious and made of fresh local food. The service was very nice and attentive and the atmosphere very charming. The price... More

We went here on our last night in France. Lovely way to finish our trip. The staff were very attentive and opened the upstairs section for us. The food was very modern and stylish. I had beautifully cooked salmon. Rather than just stick to the kids menu they also offered the kids half portion of their main adult courses which... More

The carnivores amongst us were also delighted with our food, the service was a little slow but nothing to complain about really, it gave us all time to... More
