We were staying in honfleur but decided to travel out, this is honestly the best seafood platter I've ever had. 65 euros for two and it was more than enough! Wish we could get this in the UK

Changing the crew of our sailboat, required a good dinner together. After local advice we ended up in Paillette. How good the advice was! Excellent food and service. On a Friday night without reservation the place was full, but they found us a table.

We both had the Menu Paillette at 30.90 Euros. Service was excellent although we did go early at 7;30pm. Food was most enjoyable and noticeable large portions. No hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

We've now been here twice before boarding the ferry home. The staff are so helpful and friendly, and though we try hard to speak French, they just love to speak English! I have booked twice on-line, always with trepidation, but both time the booking has been received and we have been seated in the conservatory, so no complaints there. The... More

The oysters are fresh (go bigger!), as are the mussels (done à la Normandy, which is delightfully creamy), and the staff are extremely nice and helpful. I could smell other people's dishes and honestly, I wish I'd had more room in my stomach. I can see why this is a staple in Le Havre, I don't think you can go... More

I was looking for a great place while visiting Le Havre, France from my cruise ship for seafood, oysters, mussels, fruit de mer, etc. This great find was recommended to me by the local tourist bureau at the port and has been in existence since 1596, some 420 years. Tons of waiters, tons of French class. More Mid-range +. I... More

We reached Le Havre late in the afternoon and walked around the place looking for a restaurant which was still open. Pleasantly surprised to see this place. Good ambience and food.

Visited this place on business and we found very good. Excellent food and great Normandy cider. Steak was outstanding and snails were even better. Highly recommended.
