Very pleasant place with a sea view from most tables doing great seafood. Nothing too fancy and decent portions, good food, well presented, service is polite, and swift when needed. If the mackerel rillettes starter's still on the menu then order it, it's great. Non fishy items available if you're not that way inclined. It's not cheap but doesn't pretend... More

We were very satisfied with our dinner at La Cremaillere, and our stay in their hotel. The ceviche and butternut squash soup were very nice appetizers- generous servings. The "daily special"/menu with the catch of the day was prepared to perfection. The wine list was quite extensive and reasonably priced. Our server was very friendly. During the day the ocean...

We took a short detour on our way to the ferry at Caen to eat an evening meal here. The hotel/ restaurant is very well placed on the sea front/ promenade for good views and taking a walk after your meal. The food was very good and service efficient, although not particularly friendly. We weren't kept waiting long and all... More

We chose this restaurant for our final lunch before heading to the ferry and home. It is in a great location overlooking the sea and we were lucky to be there on a beautiful sunny day. We could have sat outside but chose to be inside as it was a little too hot in the sun! Service was prompt and... More

Had a very good meal here. The staff were helpful and attentive even when the restaurant is full. However the price is not the cheapest compared with other restaurant. But I guess it is the price of good food and service.

We walked past and thought it acute place to stop in for lunch. We were greeted by a very snooty frenchman who did not make us feel welcome at all....constantly mocking our limited french ! We ended up having drinks and ate elsewhere :( too bad with such a beautiful setting ...

We enjoyed very nice seafood, also nice steak and particularly good deserts. The restaurant has a very nice location overlooking the beach, but as a result it is very busy and everyone seemed to eat at the same time at 7pm. Service was slow and forgetful as a result. We ate inside with a view over the sea, but there... More

We were not planning on staying here for supper but we walked past the restaurant on the beach at lunch and everything smelled so good that we decided to stay. The seafood is so fresh and the mussels (which I think everyone in the restaurant ordered) were the best i have ever had.

We had dinner in the restaurant two nights. We had tables in the outer part of the restaurant where there is a magnificent view over the sea. The staff was very professional and attentive and the food excellent for this type of restaurant. Can really recommend it!
