This is a must when visiting Bayeux. Pierre- Henri is so welcoming and speaks excellent English and will do anything to help. There is no menu here, just a daily special. However if there is something that you dont like, Pierre-Henri will try and give you something you do. Thats great service. The food here is amazing and the wine selection is 2nd to none. What i like about Le Volet qui Penche is the great atmosphere and the restaurant is full of local people, which speaks volumes to me.

Little bistro-style restaurant. One menu of the day: if you're one of those picky people who needs things done differently, this is not the place for you. Home-style cooking, that is, in the home of great cooks. Very affordable. Don't skimp on the wine because the sommelier (the owner) knows his oenology -- and the wine he suggested was absolutely sublime.

We so enjoyed this charming little restaurant! Pierre-Henri could not have been nicer and was so helpful when we were trying to make our wine choices. We ended up staying for a very good dinner followed by more terrific wine! Good food, great wine, and excellent service by everyone!

I am so glad I found these recommendations for Le Volet qui Penche in Bayeux! We visited it for a lunch and were so impressed that we returned for dinner on the same day. Both the food and wine were excellent and reasonably priced. The venue was lovely, and the host (Pierre-Henri Lemessier) was very personable. I recommend this restaurant/wine bar very highly.
