“Like sitting in a moving painting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

What a place to sit on a warm summers evening. The two nights we stayed in Honfleur whilst on a journey to visit a great uncle's war grave, we ended up eating at this very pleasant little brasserie. The situation is unbeatable with the sights and sounds of the picturesque little harbour and delightful old buildings. Artists, markets and all the theatre surrounding those activities added to the lovely meals of moules and pommes frites and carafes of rosé.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating and reserved a table for us both nights. The prices were reasonable and we thought good considering the area.

“Overworked stressed out waiter....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Stopped in here to eat dinner. We sat outside to enjoy the great views of the harbor and the area. However the experience dragged on way too long with very slow service and a waiter who very rarely came over to check on us. Food was fine, but not remarkable. I would skip this one.

“Really nice !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

We enjoyed our moment here, not only because of the view but about the food in our plates, and the staff. Really nice moment. People who want try french typical and good food must go here. Also the mussles are really good ( And I can say you that ate a lot before to come in this restorant, but they weren't so tasty) ! My friends took some duck and other stuff. And I can say you, that it was excelent ! So we would like to say that this restaurant has an exelent chef. Don't forgot to pass there.

“Excellent Seafood with a Harbor View.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We enjoyed our first seafood dinner so much we returned for a second visit and had another delicious seafood dinner. The service was very helpful and very good.
Our dinners consisted of 3 courses with wine. Every course was of course freshly prepared and excellent.
We highly recommend this restaurant.
