We couldn't find a decent restaurant in Avranches until we asked a passer by for help. We stressed we didn't want a crêperie nor a pizzeria, which was all we had seen up till then. She identified that we needed somewhere " gastronomique" and sent us here. The ambiance, the service and the food were all top notch. There are... More

First off, a caveat. I don't tend to give poor reviews, but this was a hugely expensive and lacklustre meal in a hotel that was poorly kept and appeared to be resting on its laurels. We've stayed in places from B+Bs to châteaux on this trip and eaten wonderful meals in places from Routier cafes to Michelin starred restaurants and... More

My husband & I plus our 12 year old boys went to La Croix d'Or for lunch on 24th July 2016. The bar man downstairs was barely helpful as he directed us upstairs to a table. The restaurant upstairs was a lovely setting looking out over the bay - unfortunately the old-ish waitress who seated us and took our order... More

We stopped in Avranches on the way to Caen. We had seen these reviews and decided to eat here. Whilst the food is very good it was still a little off the best as some reviews describe it. Service is not quick so if you are in a hurry move them on a bit! All in all OK but not... More

It was the penultimate night of our vacation in Normandy when we discovered La Croix d'Or and regret not having found it sooner, as the menu was excellent and I could have worked my way through just about every dish, given time. Food was excellent and traditional French and it is easy to see why it is so highly regarded... More

This was a lovely restaurant in a beautiful town. The service was impeccable and friendly. Innovative food with interesting twists on traditional menu items. The setting was so charming. Former post house that is in tip top condition and really pretty. Strongly recommend this restaurant. Worth a detour to do there.

We stayed in Ducey on a Sunday with no restaurants open. Drove to Avranche where most restaurants were also closed We found LaCroix by chance and what a pleasant surprise. A typical formal French restaurant. We chose their 4 course menu at around 40 Euro. We had excellent food, cheese that was exactly as ripe you want and irresistible deserts... More

This is a very traditional French restaurant with well trained staff and good food. It could be quite expensive if you choose from the a la carte menu, but the fixed price 2 course menu at lunchtime is excellent value and beautifully presented. It even included an amuse bouche.

During our tour of France we opted for lunch at La Croix d'Or because we liked the reviews we'd read on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The staff speak minimal if no English, but we appreciated their genuine care and service. The only dish I did not care for was the fish soup. I was hoping for some actual... More
