We chose Le Bréard primarily because many of the other restaurants in Honfleur were closed on Sunday evening and, frankly, wish we hadn’t. We ate the most expensive Menu Sensation at 55 Euros which, although not particularly expensive for this level of dining in France, was underwhelming to say the least. While amuses bouches and the first courses were OK in non-spectacular way, the veal sweetbreads were raw in the middle and cold to the touch. And I wonder who thought it was a good idea to serve a rather stale piece of turbot with a sweet almond sauce. It wasn’t. The pretentiously named Déclinaison autour du chocolat, version 2012 was, well, just chocolate, and Le Croque agrume was just oranges and lemons in a tart to us.
Service from the black-clad staff was clinically efficient if less than warm and welcoming and, all in all, the place was a disappointment. We hear from other guides that Le Bréard is in the running for a Michelin star. It has, in our view, a bit of a journey ahead first.
