We had lunch here after visiting the Utah Beach D-Day Museum. It was one of the few places in the town that didn't stop serving after 2pm (very helpful for tourists that are not on a schedule). The food was fabulous and the prices very reasonable. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for a suberb place to dine when you are near Utah Beach, this is the place to go. Located in main square of the small village of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, the restaurant is hard to miss as you drive through town on the D913 road. Though our French is poor, the maitre'd knew some English and made us... More

Nice little restaurant across from the church. We had a very nice meal of oysters and cod. But the best was the tarts tatin dessert -the best I ever had. Would definitely recommend.

This place was recommended by our B&B, so we gave it a try. The wine was nice at a good price. I ordered lamb shank, and was rather disappointed. Not only was it not particularly tender, it was not hot all the way through. I assumed it had been made ahead and re-heated. Not so great.

I cannot fault the place. They adore serving the English even though there is a language barrier. I make a bee line for it when I am staying locally.

Excellent meal. They were very tolerant of our poor French. Made us feel at home and the fish was very good.

The place is tiny but the food is spectacular - fish/scallops perfectly done. Service is fantastic. Great Owner - he works as a waiter and knows his business.
