The Restaurant is situated on an hotel with the same name that has excellent views to St Michel Mountain. The service of the waiters was excellent but the food was nothing special. The Fruit the mer was overcooked and was not tasty at all. The Menu is a better deal and price is not good for what you get. Nothing special although waiter was very friendly.

We stayed at the hotel and ate in as it was convenient. We were given a complimentary drink, a small glass of flavoured cider, I think. It was a nice way to start, but it's where it seemed to fall apart a bit. There were two gentleman doing all the waiting and although they seemed to be working hard, just seemed to take so long to do things. As had happened in a few French restaurants, they sit you down and leave to you to contemplate for quite some before they come back.

The menu was extensive and they offered a range of set menus at varying prices starting at 14€. It's basic, but OK. We had eaten during the day and were limited for time as we still wanted to go out to the Mont and chose the simple 19€ menu. The food was wholesome, but again, nothing special. It took a long time to get the fist course, but after that, it came out promptly. Desert was delicious.

If we had the time, we would try somewhere else, but otherwise, the restaurant still fills a niche and it's handy to eat in.

We ate at this restaurant mostly because it was convenient, being situated in our hotel. We were truly delighted with how wonderful everything was!! The staff was unusually warm and friendly (for France especially), and the ambience of the dining room was very cozy -- especially by the fireplace. Our meal was one of the best we had in a 3 week trip, everything being simply delicious. I'd certainly recommend the seafood, which in this region is fresh. But you're also in Normandy, so try their local lamb (said to be saltier than normal because the grass they eat grows in salty marshes and tender enough to cut with a fork). Also, Normandy is proud of it's cheeses so if you can find the room, sample it when they bring it by. Breakfast the following morning was also of high quality. Very highly recommended.

I don't know if I blame the workers for their poor attitude as so many visitors were rude and obnoxious. I suppose that takes its toll. We purchased overpriced juice, water and pastries there and ate them American style (on the run) as the place was cold and unwelcoming - and it definitely did not look comfortable to sit in. Perhaps the atmosphere is nicer when the weather is clear and sunny - but we understand that is uncommon in this part of France.

It may not be a top-ranked quality of food and service, but I found it relatively delicious and acceptable, epecially sea food. We had moules and fish (set menu 19 euros) as well as blood putting. The deserts were quite delicious, too. I haven't been to other restaurants on the same block so can not compare.
