We came in for dinner a good three hours before closing time. Around one fifth of tables was empty. The staff did their best not to notice us both when we were calmly waiting to be seated and when we were asking them directly. It felt very humiliating. We ended up getting a pizza right across the road. At least that was delicious and came with a smile.

We had two coffees here for 7 euros 70 cents. After giving the young waitress a 10 euro note she went away and did not come back with change. We saw her subsequently serve two other tables near us but still she did not come back with our change. By this time we had finished our coffees and were ready to leave, so I went to the bar and asked if she had some money for us. She kind-of remembered and gave me 30 cents and said good bye. I challenged her and said we should also have another 2 euros. There was a bit of a flurry behind the bar and eventually she appeared with the correct change. We surmised that since she told us the original amount in French she thought we might not have understood how much change was owing and might have left it at that. Of course the other explanation is that she might have forgotten. Draw your own conclusion or try Mamie Flo’s up the street instead.

Hello,

We are sorry for this mistake, effectively my waitress forgot to take back the money of your bill. I was near of you when you came in bar to reclaim and i constated the fact.

I want to apologize and promise you that it was involuntary.
Our restaurant is respectuous of the foreign tourists. We help them when it's possible and make products of Normandy.

See you soon.

We were just walking past and found the colourful chairs and tables attractive- came back a second time. Very friendly but professional owner. The food is "brasserie" but good quality- we had lunch the second time- he offered a vegan dish although it wasn't on the menu. Decor in the bar is original and rather studenty. Would go back.

Great nice little restaurant near the beach with perfect couple who do the serving and cooking. Just by coincidence we found this lovely place. Extremely nice people, great place to stay and very good food. We already ate there a few times and were surprised by the dishes and good wine. Next year we will come back....definitely! With warmest regards, Patty and Ruud (and our lovely white shepherd Blue)

We chose the place because we could see the ocean when sitting outside. Everything seemed simple but we just wanted to have some lunch with our kids. Despite the simplicity and prices the food and service were excellent. Very friendly and personal service as well as an awesome selection of local specialties - the „fondue“ plate was amazing. Great beer and cocktails too, great menue and service for children. Never expected this in a touristic area. Do try this place!
