Description: Dans cet endroit mythique d’Honfleur, sous le regard bienveillant du clocher de l’église Sainte Catherine, le bruit des fourchettes n’a jamais vraiment cessé et emplit à nouveau le grand salon bibliothèque des Maisons de Léa.Après avoir transformé ce lieu magique en une adresse de charme incontournable en Normandie, Léa et Didier Lassarat lui ont enfin donné la table que leurs hôtes attendaient.Délicieusement installés devant les bibliothèques, au coin de la grande cheminée ou sur la belle terrasse paysagée par un ami, venez vous régaler d’une belle cuisine, franche, raffinée et gourmande. Bar sauvage rôti, suprême de pigeon, pomme reinette…les plus beaux produits sont sélectionnés par Léa et son chef de cuisine.

“Very nice place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

It's market day and the town is jammed with locals and tourists. Honfleur is a very picturesque town and we deemed it a good place for lunch. We choose the restaurant in an ancient hotel, in the heart of the old town, called Les Maisons de Lea, where we ate a delicious light lunch in a quiet refined setting beneath hand hewn ceiling beams with sun streaming through centuries old glass.

The service was typical of France, polite, quiet and competent. The food light, delicious and perfectly prepared and considering the quality and the setting quite reasonably priced.

“Beautiful setting, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We ate at Les Maisons de Lea on our second night in Honfleur. I saw another reviewer described the restaurant as "formal", but we did not find this to be bad. The indoor room is beautiful and the outdoor seating has a nice view of the church. The food was outstanding. The night we were there, they seemed to be a bit short on staff. There were two younger gentleman covering all of the tables, and from their frantic pace, it seemed to be a touch overwhelming. However they kept their poise and still delivered good service regardless. I would eat here again.

“A hotel restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

i would be a little less enthusiastic than many of the reviews. I can see that for lunch outside it is in a perfect location. However we had dinner in the evening and it felt like a hotel restaurant, a bit impersonal. The dining room is rather formal and laid out like a library with with leather covered chairs and floor to ceiling bookcases.
The thing that we liked least was the atmosphere, which was 'whispering quiet'. The thing that we liked best was the food, which was well cooked and tasty.
Service was a bit hit and miss - a number of details that were not right, which added up to an experience that was less than I would expect for the price. Overall it was somewhat more expensive than similar places that we have visited.

“Relaxed, cosy, child-friendly, and very tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Very nice setting, friendly service and excellent food. Our very first restaurant in Honfleur and we were just very lucky to have chosen this one for our lunch. We can recommend the menu (also for the kids): Small and very tasty dishes, all very fresh (especially the fish). It is nice that also the kids can choose from the dessert menu; Choose one - you cannot go wrong!
Highly recommended!
