“Rude staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

My mother in law and myself went for lunch at this hotel whilst my partner and his father visited the musuem. We we greeted by a young man that seemed in an awful rush even though it was clearly not busy. After ordering drinks we asked for a menu, the young man threw the reciept for the drinks at us and stormed off. As we were discussing paying for drinks and going else where for lunch a elder man came out with the menus and was apologetic. We ordered lunch and was pleasently suprised by fresh mussels. Shame about the staff ! Arromanches town is well worth the visit though.

“Traditional hotel right at the sea shore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

The hotel part was a little dated but cosy. We had five rooms as a group. Every room was a different siize. You got what you paid for. The rooms where very clean and well furnished.
Free parkind was availeble in the back of the hotel.. The breakfast buffet was good. We had three dinners at the restaurant with verious sea food dishes. All the meals where very good and the servive was prompt and helpful with the menue.

“Very average meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

this was the most disappointing meal we had on our latest trip to France. Service was rushed and the food had a very mass produced feel about it. Such a shame because the actual restaurant looked so nice from the outside.

“Convenient and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

We arrived in Arromanches around lunchtime and I dreaded trying to find somewhere to eat as it's such a touristy place. However, we were very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. Service was fine - bit brisk and French, but perfectly fine- and food was good. The children had steak hache and it was genuinely really good steak - as good as we'd have at home for a special treat! I also had a burger, which again was delicious and my husband had mussels. All of us were very happy with our meals and the service. It was 't bad value at all considering the touristy nature of the town. The location opposite the harbour was great. We'd definitely return again if in the area.

“Nice food in a pleasant setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Overall, this is an average restaurant, with a wide variety of choice on the menu. The restaurant is in a fairly central location to Arromanches, being across from the main car park and museum. The food is of good quality, but the service is very slow, very understaffed and we visited in a quiet period. I believe this restaurant would struggle in the busy peak periods. For our first experience though, not bad, not the best, but would probably use again if passing.
