The food in La Citadelle is great. The menus are creative and have a good price point. The only significant issue with this restaurant is the FRONT OF HOUSE. It is a shame that a restaurant that (according to TripAdvisor) is standing out lacks in a proper front of house management. I had the feeling that all waitresses including the... More

We'd wandered up and down by the port looking for a restaurant and found this. They weren't open but the lady in charge booked us in when they did at 12.15. She was a bit officious and we weren't allowed to stop for a drink first. When we did arrive were shown to a table inside which was nice and... More

Venture through the winding streetlets of the old port town of Granville, and around by the venerable port you'll find this snazzy upmarket restaurant. It's got a splendid way with fish, and for a celebratory dinner we indulged in sole meuniere, 'fish and chips', skate and oysters. Everything was well and imaginatively cooked and presented with elan, with bonuses such... More

My wife and I visited for lunch on a cold May day without a reservation, and got the last indoor table. I started with ravioli filled with andouille de Vire, a local sausage. It was very genuine and quite revolting, and my own fault for ordering it. We have a second home in France and should know better than to... More

A Saturday evening meal in a busy restaurant, but with first rate service. The food was delicious. Menu is, obviously, primarily seafood, but a reasonable choice for carnivores. Recommended

Too many tables,not enough space to pull a chair out. Food good, wine good, service good. Staff efficient and professional. Not too much to say , I have had better meals in Granville.

Have been eating here for decades, even before it moved from the old town to the harbourside. It was always good and has steadily got better. It is now clearly the best restaurant in and around Granville and we have eaten at them all over the past 35 years. The only downside is that if you don't like seafood your... More

Based on reviews and a love of sea food, we booked a week in advance. Arrived to be given a table next to the entrance, with a chair with one leg on a ramp and no more than a metre from a very nice couple who I now know a lot more about than I wanted to know. Not a... More

A rainy Monday, went in without a booking, though that was okay as we were quite early, seafood really good, ambience so-so, staff very pleasant and professional, and the restaurant thoroughly deserved it's Michelin 2015 Red Guide listing.
