The style of Le Breard is essentially casual, but the standards of service and cuisine would pass muster at far more pretentious restaurants. Each course took classic dishes as their basis, but added a twist, often with a Japanese influence. I began with a steak tartare presented as a long rectangle covered over with a sort of ultra-light sesame-snap biscuit and with mustard ice cream that smacked more of wasabi. This was followed by thin strips of duck breast marinated in tea with a vegetable maki tempura. I chose a reasonably priced 2005 Lalande Pomerol which was very harmonious. The cheeses were the usual Normandie suspects, but fine examples and dessert was an exceptional fruit souffle with accompanying finely chopped fruit salad, almost a light compote.
I left the restaurant feeling enegized and mildly euphoric - partly the reasonable price paid, no doubt, but also a tribute to the very high standard of ingredients and cuisine at this exceptional restaurant.

We had dinner here with Easter. There was a hick-up regarding my reservation (could not be found, but instead of 8 pm we could come bu at 9:15 pm). We ordered the 4-course menu for euro 55 each. Great variety of courses and haute cuisine. Also had a Sancerre and Saint-Emillion. Good level of service by staff. We had a great evening!

We stayed at the Hotel de Leah just 40 paces from the door of this superb restaurant. The food was the best I have tasted since visiting The Fat Duck five years ago. French cooking at it's very best, pidgeon and more game, salmon, beef, delicate vegetables, amazing sauces, Potato mousse!. Sea Bass. Amuse bouche to start and chocolate morsels with coffee. Plus a half bottle of red wine What dining value! £75. for two

We just returned from a lovely weekend in Honfleur. We had made reservations at le Breard for 12:30 pm on Saturday and after being stuck in traffic and realizing we were going to be late, we called and asked if we could change our reservation to 1:00pm. They were more than accommodating. When I called at 1:00 and said that it looked like it was going to be at least another half hour before we got there, the lady was very kind and also explained to me where I would find the best parking once we got into town.
When we finally arrived at 1:40, we entered a packed restaurant and our table for two was waiting for us. I can tell you that after having lived in France for close to 15 years, we have arrived at restaurants at that hour and have been made to fee unwelcome and like we would be lucky to get whatever scraps might be available. NOT the case at Le Breard. Everything was available on the menu and we were able to get the special trio of Tuna appetizer (although we felt that one of the preparations was bit salty and the texture was a bit tough) .
Our primary waitress was very sweet as was the hostess. We do have to say that the other server - a young blond woman was pretty apathetic. She mumbled any item as she brought it to our table and was quite slow and inattentive with the white wine that needed to be served from the cooler set behind my husband - if you told me she hadn't slept the night before, I'd believe you.
Our main course of bass fish in a lovely orange sauce with delicately prepared carrots - it was excellent - succulent and flavorful. One of your contributors recommended the chocolate dessert and we wholeheartedly suggest it as well. A great wine selection also. Very good quality for the price.
