We have eaten at this restaurant a number of times over the years as it has always offered a consistent standard (and perhaps for the orange flavoured crème brûlée too !) in this lovely but touristy town where not all restaurant experiences have been positive. This visit was no exception. We ate inside for a change but the terrace into the square is usually a pleasant relaxing place to sit. The location in place Ste-Catherine is not on the very touristy side of the old harbour but is, in our opinion the better for it - the square is slightly less busy but still picturesque and restaurants need to survive on quality not just location. This meal was again at a good standard with the Moules, tuna and steak for the committed carnivore all good... and the orange Crème brûlée too. The disappoiontment that I could not order one item on the blackboard menu because stock had run out was in fact a positive in that the blackboard does represent what the market had that day. We will return again, I am sure.

Food couldn't be faulted, excellent choice of either fixed menus or A la carte all reasonably priced. Serviced was superb even when we asked to move outside mid meal nothing was to much trouble. Owner was a little cold but the waiter was excellent, fun but still professional not an easy feat to carry off. Everyone was made to feel special.
Please give them a try I promise you won't regret it.

Relaxed, friendly and good for our two small children. Had a pleasant meal ( I had skate in a cream sauce (do wish the French would skip their cream addiction and go for a fresher approach to fish - but this is cultural rather than a fault of this restaurant)) 5y/o had moules & Frites and loved them, the 1 y/o shared my skate and that went down well. Hubby had steak which was at a standard good quality. Wine was good.
Solid value for money. Good service. Recommended over some of the more pretentious restaurants in Honfleur. Honestly run family restaurant.

This was a great place to sit outside on a hot night and have a family meal for 6. Good food, not too expensive, nice relaxed atmosphere Ian charming square slightly off the main port area.

We ate here in an evening during the very warm weather of mid July. It was a busy, buzzing place with lots of customers (I would recommend booking for an evening table because they were turning people away), but despite the fact that there were just two waiters, everything seemed to run like clockwork. Our three course meals were really good value and could not be faulted. The waiters zoomed around, entertaining people with little jokes and polite banter at each visit to a table, but they gave us enough time between courses so that we didn’t feel rushed, and the whole experience was a real delight. The moules were terrific! This is a good choice restaurant out of the many in the town and it’s in the church square which is a great central location and where you can experience the delightful bell tower chiming!
