With a varied menu, and friendly staff, we had a relaxing meal here. We didn't feel rushed by our accommodating waiter, and the food was well cooked and arrived in a timely manner. Next day we enjoyed a coffee here too.

Amazing food, really quick service which was also very friendly, I attempted to pronounce the house special and failed, the kind waiter took the time to teach me how to pronounce it! Food was amazing and in my opinion for the portion size and taste was very very reasonable....so much so that I went for a dessert as well!! Highly... More

Didn't eat here owing to the crazy prices of the drinks. We stopped in for a drink and sat outside, ordered a pint and a half of Heineken (due to there only being that and leffe on offer) which came to just over 9 euros! Total rip off.

This restaurant served a table of five last minute when we must have been the last guests. Three children were catered for and the staff were polite and friendly whilst the restaurant was clean. I had modules in a fruits de la mere sauce which was lovely served in a kettle that keeps the mussles and sauce hot. My partner... More

A fairly functional restaurant. The food was OK but a little pricey for the quality. The Barman seemed to take delight in making as much noise as possible So that has lost it a Star in my rating

A rather “functional” atmosphere about the place with a feeling that its aimed at the tourist and, given the speed of service, I don’t think they expect you to hang about. It’s certainly not a quaint relaxed French eatery. That said the food was fine, nothing spectacular, nothing bad just good standard fare, the moules being maybe an exception which... More

We had stopped in Ouistreham whilst waiting to board the ferry back to the UK. Maybe we had been spoiled by the excellent quality of the restaurants in Saumur but we were greatly disappointed by our meal at Le Menhir. The decor is tacky and jaded, with tatty menus. The service was okay for speed but certainly wasn't dynamic. The... More

We had dinner here on a Friday evening. The service was quick and efficient, the staff speaking both French and English. We looked at most of the menus of restaurants on the street and Le Menhir seemed to have the best selection. The food was delivered quickly and was well prepared and presented. We both had superior crepes for desert... More

We stayed in Honfleur, but having visited the area three times previously knew there was only one place we wanted to eat. The mussels in cream are to die for, good staff, well sighted venue so outdoor eating is in sunshine and sheltered when it gets a bit windy. Lovely friendly staff, offering good food at all levels. No rushing... More

We ate here several times and were not disappointed with our choices. Quantity of food stopped us eating more than a sorbet for dessert. Not opened on the Monday of our stay.
