“A little gem of a restaurant”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Wanting to try something else than the busy tourist traps in Honfleur and Trouville, we opted to have lunch in the small fishing village of Villerville, right on the Seine estuary accross from Le Havre. Not much of a choice here, with just one restaurant on the beachfront. We were lucky to get a table (the last) in a packed restaurant on a sunny November Sunday. Plenty of locals, and a few brits. We enjoyed one of a small variety of fish dishes, cod fillet with a creamy mussels sauce. Absolutely fresh and delicious. With a few oysters as starters, wine, and a great cafe gourmand to finish ...the calva being offered by the generous waitress (the daughter of the owner/cook), the bill for two came to just 65 euros. You need to try it to believe it!

After a wonderful lunch we went for a stroll on the charming beachside promenade. All in all Villerville proved to be definitely worth a detour.
