A true gastronomic restaurant without redundant sofistications in the service or dishes. The young chef has great potential. Last but not least, prices are quite low, given the quality of the food and the professionalism of the service. Certainly the best restaurant in Dieppe region.

Arrived to this tiny village restaurant without booking. Warm and friendly welcome and luckily table was available. One of us choose the 39 euro, the other the 26 euro menu. All drinks were extra. Food was absolutely out of this world! Excellent quality, attentive service, superb wine list. Every single portion was freshly made, beautifully presented. Pricy but well worth every cent! Highly recommended. Compliment for the Chef and the whole staff.

Le Colombier is good value and it opens for both lunch and dinner and for seven days a week, so it is deservedly popular. The staff are friendly and professional, there are four menus priced from 29 Euro to 49 Euro with a few supplements, and the wine list is extensive with enough choice at the budget conscious end and some attractive goodies for those with deeper pockets or something to celebrate. My mackerel starter had vinegar in the description but far too much in the dish and was refrigerator-cold. The asparagus soup was a better choice. Our mains of fish with cream sauce, duck with spices and pork were OK but each showed a bit too much advance preparation and lacked elegance. My apple pud - an apple and biscuit crumble stack with nice ice cream - was quickly swapped by my partner for his cheese which was an excellent selection from the master cheesemonger Olivier. More mature diners could close their eyes and forget the designer grey-beige walls and be transported back to the mid 20th century when for 12 francs you could joyfully eat three courses of the equivalent food of the time. Such a menu is and was easy on the kitchen in a cook-ahead way and relies on good value ingredients. So nothing has changed much apart from the square plates and 3000% inflation which is hardly their fault. Well done for maintaining the French tradition of good food at moderate prices! With a few easy tweaks it could be even better.

The Colombier is my all time favourite restaurant. The setting is divine, the ambience wonderfully relaxed and the service attentive, friendly and always informative. The presentation of the food is clever but not tricksy, the quality of the ingredients, the subtle tastes and the sheer brilliance of Laurent's cooking combine to make every visit a delight. I'm selfishly glad it hasn't been awarded the Michelin stars it deserves, because it is still possible to get a table by booking in advance.

Fairly upmarket restaurant that uses local produce and is a member of Toques Normandes a regional association of quality service restaurants. Always reserve as normally fully booked. We went on a Sunday for lunch. Service is slow but sure and nothing is rushed. We started with an Amouse Bouche of cold creamy peas soup served with little oaten biscuits, fresh radishes and a bowl of salt crystals. My starter was Gambas/Crevette with bouillon. This was followed by slow cooked lamb then Caramel Dome for dessert. Good choice of only french wines but all fairly expensive. The wines we had were of excellent quality however. Total bill was 190 Euros for three. Very well run with pleasant atmosphere but not to stuffy.
