“If you just go for a nice view”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I think it´s best to avoid this row of tourist trap restaurants. Cheap they are, but food tasteless. (Excuse me. I don´t include the the more expensive places in the strip. I have not tried them.) There are places around which have worse food than Marinette. Sallad Nicoise was fresh, but a bit rough. And lacked in taste. Gambas was ok, but not of the kind you go twice for. Service was excellent for regulars. But bad for some others. They offer 24cl glasses of wine. When I remarked it was only 16 cl, a very angry manager came out to prove it was possible to pour in 24 cl in their 16 cl glases. He was not very succesfull.

“Great value and wonderful service”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Twelve of us turned up without a reservation as lunch service began. Tables were quickly pushed together to accommodate us. The waiter smiled and joked with everyone and made this a memorable lunch. The food was excellent, and at only 14€ for three couses was fantastic value for money. The restaurant is very centrally located, right across from the car park and fish market.

“Really wonderful!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Really great food and wine for reasonable prices. I had the salmon, which was the best I've had in a long time, and my husband had the andouillete and potato gratin, both of which he was very happy with. He is French and gets this sort of sausage in a lot of restaurants (it's a little too adventurous for me!) and he thought that it was just perfect at Chez Marinette. The ambiance was cozy and warm, there is a lot more seating upstairs, and everyone working there was friendly and the service was very efficient. Don't forget to end with some of the regional Calvados brandy; they have several kinds to choose from. Highly recommended!
