“Beautiful experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

What a lovely little restaurant away from the touristy harbour front. The menus were varied or set price with flexibility. We're not massive eaters but do like quality, this certainly was quality. Every dish was explained when being served and in between tasters were served with the same enthusiasm. How can anyone be negative about La Tortue.

“A wonderful first meal in Honfleur”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

We arrived on the busiest saturday of the Bastille Day holiday weekend and were glad to shuffle past the touristy places on the harbour and find up the side street this charming place.
Valerie was a very good waitress who also made us laugh! We had good value for the three course menu - I had delicious pate, then a fantastic pork dish and a meringue surprise dessert.
The service was smooth and the ambience cosy and professional. A lunch to remember and no need for more food this day as we were so fulfilled!

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

We had the salmon (without the cream) which was absolutely perfect. The herbs they used in their rice was delicious. Despite calling late they were very welcoming in accommodating us. Staff were extremely friendly. Not an extensive menu but wonderful choices.

“Best veggie meal in France”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

To be clear this isn't just a veggie restaurant but they have a specific veggie set menu. The restaurant is in a beautiful old building not far from the pretty harbour.

I always have low expectations of what the food (and service for that matter) will be like in any restaurant in France - where vegetarians are generally treated with utter distain! However my fears were unfounded. As others have reported the food was delicious (my husband said his pork dish was exceptional) and the staff welcoming and charming. Such a difference from some of the places we've been to in France.

There are several menus at differing prices so you can choose whether to have a lovely meal or something more extravagant.

I would have no hesitation recommending this restaurant to anyone and will definitely come back.
