My wife and I had dinner here in mid September - although the season on the Fleurie Coast was winding down, it was packed. That should not have surprised us since the meal we enjoyed was excellent. Menus are emphatically French: two set menus provide good value. Our four course €33 set menu was well chosen and centred around a main of either baked cod or duck breast, both of which were done to perfection, with a generous starter, dessert and cheese. Presentation throughout was very good indeed and the service offered was rapid and helpful. We found little to criticise, save for the wine list, which is both decidedly expensive, and not as large as the oversized book it arrived in, But in the round, this is an exceptionally good restaurant which is strongly recommended - booking is essential especially in the summer and at weekends

My wife and I dined here whilst staying in Houlgate. They have several menu options as well as a la carte and we were spoilt for choice.
Whilst they do not have menus in English the staff were more than happy to explain and we were made to feel welcome.
They have a very good wine list and there is something there for all tastes and price points.
I was very impressed by the quality of the food which was to a very high standard. Whilst not the cheapest option in town for the standard of food and service it represents good value for money.
I am not surprised that L’Eden is ranked number 1 in the area and we will be back.

Really good menu with something to interest everyone, plus an unexpected amuse Bouche and great wine list. Add in pleasant staff and nicely spaced out tables which could cater for either a large group or an intimate table a deux, what more could you ask
No hesitation in recommending this as being a bit special.

My second time in this restaurant in two years and the same pleasant surprise: a wonderful sea cuisine, menus that change, wonderful patisserie and friendly prices.
