It always amazes me how the same restaurant can be loved by some, hated by others. We sat at an outside table on a sunny day in early November and enjoyed different versions of moules-frites....all excellent.....with a nice white wine and a great view on the beautiful harbour. What more could one ask for? Oh, and the service was efficient and friendly. Perhaps you reap what you sow.

Just had dinner there as the other ones were crowded.. So I went for this one as the menu was appealing to me. ok! was sitting in the obviously newly acquired building next to the historical. I took the fixed menu with a fish terrine, for which the sauce more than hide the taste of the fish. Texture was not really pleasant for the fish terrine. Next dish was the ray with some kind of sweet sauce (maybe cider). The portion was good, the fish also good, but i think the sauce missed something.... I must say that i like sweet and salted dishes.
Finally, wanting to award the local apples, i took the apple terrine, served with caramel sauce, and crushed & roasted hazelnuts. The terrine had no taste, its texture really not pleasant. There should be something to make it better...........
To drink, a bottle of cider. Average. It is not really a "brut" one but rather a mild one (ie semi sweet).

We were looking for somewhere for a late lunch on Easter Saturday. It was busy in the bassin, and very chilly. I happened to see a table in the inside window vacate, and grabbed it quick.
The 3 course lunch menu was 15euros, and cheaper than just ordering a single course ? So we both had the lunch menu. Pate to start, then moules or duck.
For the price we paid, the quality of food was very good.
We had an excellent table in the window, where we could watch the world go by.
The restuarant seemed to close, but they allowed us to order more wine. Very enjoyable lunch.

We stopped for a late lunch in the height of summer. The setting on the harbour-side is beautiful. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable without being pushy. The food was excellent, and reasonably priced. There are several similar establishments on the quay-side, but I would certainly return to L'Abricotier next time I'm in Honfleur.

We visited this restaurant on a sunny Saturday when the bassin was buzzing with tourists and poseurs with their designer clothes and designers dogs. What a gorgeous location.
Choosing a restaurant to stop at amoung the multitude that line the harbour is arbitary - and we chose on the bass off four available seats by the water.
Service was friendly and the menu quite typical - the moules with garlic and cream were delicious, though the frites well overcooked. Other meals and saladss were fine and the atmosphere and view made up for everything.
It's all about the view.
