“Superb food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Excellent menu, superb atmosphere, food lived up to and surpassed expectations based on the earlier excellent reviews. Only anomaly for such a high class restaurant was that we were left to pour our own wine but we could live with this given everything else about this restaurant was exquisite!

“La Rapier Will Leave You Enraptured”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

My fiancé booked this restaurant months in advance and I am so grateful for this. I have dined in many fine restaurants all over the world and this by far is the best one!!!!! Our stay in France and Bayeux specifically was beautiful, but the fine dining experience really made the trip. Every item brought out was exquisite and delightful. The owners and staff were pleasant, charming, and excellent at their work. Upon learning of my food allergy they went above and beyond to provide me with a yummy and safe treat. From start to finish it was the perfect experience. The meal was very affordable as well!!! Thank you so much for such an amazing dining experience!!! We loved every minute there and so did our mouths and stomachs!!! Be advised they have awesome gluten free bread!!!

“Delicious and charming restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

My husband and I were staying in Bayeux and were told this is the best restaurant . We luckily got a reservation and were so delighted by the meal. My husband had the fish stew and he still raves about it and wants me to duplicate the recipe. We loved the intermezzo which was sorbet with Calvados brandy. The desserts were wonderful. We liked the small and intimate dining room
which gave it a old world feel. The hostess and owner was so delightful that we had quite a lively conversation with many laughs. We have to say that this was a better meal than we had in any Paris restaurants on this vacation!

“Excellent food, service and ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We stayed in Bayeaux for two nights and tried to reserve La Rapiere on the first night but it was already full so we then booked for the next night. We were very happy we had done so. It is a smallish restaurant so understandable that it gets booked up, but that is also because everything else is very well done. You enter the restaurant through a small alleyway in the old part of the town. Once inside the ambience of the old building is great. We were welcomed by very friendly staff who were attentive all evening and the food was excellent and reasonably priced for the quality. It was especially nice to see a reasonably priced wine list when it is so common for restaurants to overprice wine. We were recommended a bottle to go with our meal which was perfect.

All in all an excellent restaurant. I would definitely go again if we return to Bayeaux
