My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at La Tortue on our weekend away in Honfleur. The foie gras with a wine reduction sauce and apple chutney was delicious for our first plate. We both chose the fish for our second plate and is was cooked perfectly and not too heavy. The baked apple with caramel beure sel was the perfect way to finish off the meal. The husband and wife team were charming. Even though the restaurant was full, they found time to talk about their time working in the US with us. I would recommend reservations, as they were turning away those without (even in January).

We were impressed with this spot....and the young chef and his wife. our four meals-mainly fish-were nicely presented and perfectly cooked. The 18€ price was excellent value.
Even though we had to sit upstairs where it was warmer, the meals and service were excellent. Our lovely inexperienced waitress-it was just her second day on the job- was very nice. She still was confident enough to correct our French.
Upon leaving the chef came out and chatted away in English as though he had nothing else to do, talking about his experience in San Diego and Boston.
This restaurant is certainly a best bet!

A little walk away from the harbour, this resturant gives the best value for money dinner menu in Honfleur. Only 24 covers downstairs and a further 25 upstairs. The dinner menu included fois gras (fresh) and a beautifully cooked duck as well as a choice of desserts, all for 33 euros. The only problem was the service tended to get slower as the guest numbers increased ! However would recommend it for atmosphere and quality of the cooking- but do not be in a hurry. Best to reserve.
