Were looking for somewhere to eat in Ouistreham as the restaurant in our hotel wasn't open. we chose Le Roulis as the prices for the set menus were reasonable and the added bonus of the menus being in English. we were welcomed to sit and wait even though we arrived just before opening. We chose to sit inside as it... More

We always come here just before boarding the ferry and see it as our last "taste of France". Always a warm and friendly welcome and very good service. Food is excellent : we had plate of seafood, sole, cheese and apple, coconut and lemon ice cream - which was all very tasty and plentiful. Everyone else in the restaurant seemed... More

We take the Brittany Ferries crossing from Ouistreham to Portsmouth about 3 times a year. We stumbled on this place 3 years ago and have never felt the need to eat elsewhere. We arrive about 7.30pm and always have a relaxing tasty meal before boarding the overnight ferry home, much nicer than having to eat on board at 11.30!! Yes... More

Ate there last night,whilst waiting for the ferry back to Portsmouth. We were with two friends, who have eaten there on several occasions. I had the smoked salmon, the beef bourguignon and the rice pudding - all for 15.50. The salmon was excellent, the beef tender, with a good sauce, and the rice was creamy. My wife had the Camembert...

We had a similar experience to a previous reviewer. We chose the Formule du midi. The Boeuf Bourguignon was just lumps of dried- out meat with no sauce at all, served with ok chips. The fish of the day (coley) was cold and raw in the middle. The accompanying gratin dauphinoise was warm and tasty. Both meals were served on... More

Not a local in sight..should have told us something. The place was busy but nearly all British. Starter fairly band dried out modules normande, entree burnt frites and bavette, plus dried out bouef bourguignon,desert dried out cheese. Flambleed cold creme brulee swimming in cavados. No comments from staff about nearly full plates and rejected courses, just hand over your money.... More

We have tried most of the restaurants in Ouistreham before boarding the overnight ferry for Portsmouth but this was our first time at Le Roulis. We were not disappointed. A warm welcome from the patronne and quick, efficient and friendly service from her staff. All our dishes were well cooked and presented, in fact one of the better meals of... More

Always stop here before our long journey back to England. The price, the quality and the aesthetics are all super. Always recommendable.

We travel 5 or 6 times a year on Brittany Ferries from Caen to Portsmouth and had sampled a few of the other eateries near the port but Le Roulis is definitely the best in that location. I have never booked but they always seem to squeeze you in and noticeably locals eat there as well which is always a... More
