“Off Main Street...Excellent Dinner Experience!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

As other reviewers have mentioned, this restaurant is located off the Main Street and frequented by locals or return customers from Paris who are visiting for long weekend getaways.

L'Eden is known in Houlgate as the gastronomic area restaurant...excellent, fresh food which is reasonably priced given the quality of the food and the level of creativity and presentation. My husband and I both ordered the 40€ menu and each plate was outstanding. Truly the best dinner experience in the area. Highly recommend for those that want an authentic French gastronomic dining experience!

“a very good restaurant at reasonable price”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

the restaurant was signalled in our guide, and I have to say that it was really worth a try. The environment is nice and the choice of menues adequate. Nice and wide is the choice of cheese from normandy.

“Bib tres elaboré et créatif”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Excellent !
did tedt on le full menus bib<30, & the <40... Very elaborated and both eccell.. My wife's 40' obviously the best, but my bib was very high in quality to price!

BUT 2 little cons are to be consider if u wish to dine there:
-the cheeses were not so fresh/lait cru style... The livarot looked 'industrial'... But the espelette-goat- was a very good personnal discovery!
-our 2 kids came along us, 3 & 5 y.o... As we had aperitif before coming to Eden and it was 21 o', we decided they'll share this 3-course children menu's stiff 13euros, and we asked the Eden not to serve them the 'entrée-fifst dish en français'..they 'd eat only the main dish&dessert... But as they understandably received a half chicken fillet...?!.. Ok... But they received just 1 small vanilla ice ball...TO SHARE!... LEAVING A 120e bill, what a bad decision and very bad impression..knowing we discarded the entrée at menu order to give so disrespect to what is the aim for a child....DESSERT!
