Wondering around La Havre on a Monday looking for food is a difficult task as everywhere seemed to be closed.
Lucky for us this restaurant wasnt.
We had a lovely meal. Service was good and staff friendly. Very good french cuisine

Despite a misunderstanding about when they were stopping/starting evening service we had an excellent meal . Fish stew was thick and tasty and the skate wing with capers delicious

Found this place by accident because I couldn't find the restaurant I had planned to eat at on the same street. Located next to the Hotel de Ville and its serene gardens and many fountains, this Bistro is a gem!

Funny that one should go to a "Bistrot Parisien" in Le Havre, but it was definitely better than many a bistro in Paris. First of all the "Menu = Starter, main, dessert" was great and very affordable. Much cheaper than you'd get at a real Parisian place and most importantly much better quality for a formule. Definitely not the mass produced tasteless stuff one usually finds on the Parisian formule options.

The Terrace is not big but on a good summer's day it is definitely a must. The service is also fantastic.

It's a bit away from the beach but well worth the stroll or a short tram ride to discover. Will definitely eat there again if ever back in Le Havre.

After wondering around Le Harve for about 20mins having not seen any other restaurants open we were too hungry and tired to look any further and decided to stop here.

We were unsure what to expect ......but what a find.

Plenty of choice, although not the cheapest restaurant (we were still starving at this point!) we chose our meals - mine was a chicken ceaser salad with a side of fries and the other half was a steak. They arrived within 10mins f ordering and we were very surprised - both meals looked amazing. you might not think much about a chicken ceaser salad, but this is the best salad I've ever had! The side order of fries were delicious, and home cooked. The steak arrive quite bloody, after asking for it well done, this was sent back and replaced within 5mins to a perfection.

We also had desert which was also amazing - ice cream with chocolate and a typical french cream bun! awesome.

This is one of the best restaurants ive ever been to - if it wasn't in Le Harve I would be calling back here again for the next trip to france. There's also a lovely view of the centre with the beautiful flowers and fountains.

The 1st time we visited I had the Pork Knuckle which was cooked & tasted perfection. However, I should have shared it with a friend as it was a banquet in itself. 2nd, 3rd & 4th visits were the beef bourguignon & lamb in thyme. Mmmmmmm. Can't wait to go back again. Might have to take a few friends to tackle the pork knuckle again though :-)
