We have chosen this place only because they have big sign " menu in english"- but this was the only one thing which was ok, because waitress hasn´t spoken english even single word. But nevermind after 10 minutes when waitress has had face like " what the fu*k is this "she has been able to catch what we wanted- unfortunately... More

We had a crepe and a vegetarian potato dish quite rich, just OK, surely on the mass-tourist side, but we ate quickly, normal price for Etretat, I guess.

In search for a perfect crêpe, following our adventures on the cliffs, we came across this red tourist trap. The crêpe was old, tasted like paper and was expectedly overpriced.

We've been there at 2ish pm and the waitress / owner was very mad with us. I'm French guys and I can tell you that isn't hospitality as we do actually. Pasta without any taste and my mom vomited after lunch. Anyone finished his plate and the waitress took back our plates even if some of us didn't finish..she opened... More

We visited this place because there was no other open in winter time. Food is nothing great, basically frozen type, but the worst was the service received. Always I have loved visiting Normandie because of their nice people but this time after living three years in France I had to receive xenophobic comments and loud laughing at me from one... More

Shame. Refusing access to people with kids is unacceptable. We walked in with an other family at 4:30 on a cold 1st of January, we was denied a table and even proposing us to be split in 2 tables. While we were discriminated, other groups (without kids) walked in freely and other tables left empty (see picture). Avoid it unless... More

In the off season Etretat shuts down by 7pm. Yeah this place is open. Room was cozy and warm. My wife and split the split the Belle Epoques mussels and the Mountain Potatoes. Simple food done well. We were both happily surprised.

I went there after a long hike and needed a good meal. I ordered one of the fish specialties. It was ok, but not exceptional or even there was nothing particular about it. The service there varies from one person to the other. Some are helpful and cordial, while others might need to work a bit on their smile. Their... More

Attention! it is right at the corner in front of the casino, before entering the beach side (view of the cliffs). We enter there because, being in Normadie, the place in France where one is supposed to have the best "crêpes" my wife was tented for a crêpe, and sincerely it has been the worse crêpe I ever had....

Plenty of offerings about but was tempted in by the fact that there were nice empty tables by the window and the place looked reasonably smart. However as others have said the policy here is to squeeze couples together in the middle of the restaurant first. I am used to this French habit of close dining (and quite enjoy it... More
