We have been to this restaurant about 6 times now, and it has never disappointed. The food is always excellent and well-proportioned, and is good value. The staff don't speak much English (and my French is very limited), but they are as patient and helpful as they can be, and very welcoming.
There are restaurants where the food is of a higher standard, but they would be at a much higher price. This is interesting, well-prepared food at very good prices.
We will continue to visit.

Superb cooking to be enjoyed in a super real French restaurant. Do not confuse this establishment with the tourist one in the nearby resorts!

St. Maclou is an out of the way location in Haute Normandie, not too far from Honfleur. We happened upon it because we were staying nearby, and had dinner on two consecutive nights. It is a small restaurant in a small village, and because it is well liked by locals, it is advisable to book. It is free from tourist crowds and tourist prices, and is well worth seeking out. The husband cooks, and the wife handles the front and serves. Even with every table full, they never miss a beat. The pride that they exude in their work is evident everywhere.

Service is quick, friendly, and punctiliously correct. You are welcomed at the door and escorted out with thanks when you leave. You feel that your hosts are genuinely pleased you are there. Selections are the regional dishes of Normandy. Lamb loin, in particular was exceptional, in quantity and quality. Every course, from entree (try the crab) to dessert was full of flavor and beautifully presented. Wines are well chosen and fairly priced.

We ate here at the end of a two week trip, and came away thinking it was the best overall dinner value that we'd encountered. It is the kind of family restaurant that makes you think if you lived nearby, you'd never cook again.
