Very welcoming staff and attentive throughout. The food was stunning - soupe de poison was great - the pork main course was the best I've ever tasted and the chocolate pot was superb. The wine list is also well balanced and the option of a pichot of wine is a welcome addition. Great restaurant in a town with many dining... More

Very nice restaurant - the only one that could take us on 2 hrs telephone notice on a Saturday ( be warned). All restaurants serve fish soup but this was my favourite - nice and thick.

Second time we have visited this restaurant, mainly driven by a veggie menu option. Whilst I get to order specific meals from the menu the veggie option is a "mystery tour" , referring only to a use of grains and vegetables in season. There's no need for concern however as the chef works magic on the ingredients and delivers a... More

We were a group of 19 people. We had booked a table and 8 cours meal at the restaurant. Everything was ready when we arrived and we had our own waitor for the whole night. The food was excellent. My personal favorite dish was Emincé de bœuf mariné et rôti aux fines herbes. I was perfect! I highly recommend this... More

A delightful restaurant, away from the more touristy restaurants in Honfleur. The food is exceptional, full of fresh ingredients, very flavoursome, and beautifully presented. Last visited in March 2014, yet we were remembered and welcomed accordingly.

We ate in this restaurant a few nights ago - we always pay a visit while we are in Honfleur. The chef is as wonderful as ever and the meal was delicious! Eating there is an unforgettable experience because of this man's flair with food. We will be back.

Delicious food!!! Congratulations to the chef, the food was simply outstanding!! I recommend it to everyone. The menu is selected because he wants to keep ingredients fresh!! Although I'm under gluten free diet he managed to bring the most delicious and fresh fish. Service was really good!!

Myself, my husband and teenage daughter were spending staying overnight in Honfleur - eating in France is often quite problematic, trying to find something suitable for both myself and my daughter (both vegetarians) and my husband who is far from vegetarian. Having googled restaurants suitable for vegetarians, La Tortue popped up as a possibility so we went off to have... More
