On a rainy June evening, we explored the small town of Arromanches. On our innkeeper's recommendation, we ate at La Marine. For folks like us who eat early in the evening, the 7 pm first seating was a little late (but made us feel very European). We are glad we waited! The food was lovely. Cod has a reputation for being plain, but the cod and risotto I had melted in my mouth. The service was perfect. Sullivan, our waiter, treated us well, helping us understand the menu when needed (we do not speak French). In addition to the tasty food, we were able to watch the sea during dinner. The restaurant is arranged so that every table has a view of the sea. If you want a relaxing place to treat yourself for dinner, visit La Marine.

of course the view is great but besides that (and you can obviously get the same view just sitting on the promenade) La Marine is nothing special. Actually a bit disappointing and especially very expensive. not far from the cost of the Michelin star chateau we dined in the night before...This is a place which most probably decided that given its location and stream of diners who are the hotel's guest, working too hard is not really necessary. Hence 3 waiters serving an entire full restaurant, a tiny fish as a main course and a bouillabaisse which was more of a Gerber soup than anything resembling it's origins. Would not recommend.

One of the most brilliat views of the landing beach GOLD.

This must be our fourth trip to La Marine restaurant, have also stayed at the hotel. The food and location are great - the restaurant interior is lovely and great views of the sea/Mulberry Harbour. The food is a great quality although comes at a price! What let it down for us was a grumpy waiter - we had made an early evening reservation but this clearly wasn't to the waiter's liking. One of his colleagues was very helpful but this particular waiter's surliness put a dampner on the meal. Pity, because this had previously been a 'must do' on our list in the Normandy region.

We arrived in Arromanches on a chilly, rainy evening, having driven to Nomany from Amsterdam. After checking in at our hotel (not the one affiliated with the restaurant), we walked down to the town's beach area. We were tired, cold and hungry so we wandered into La Marine. It was early for dinner by European standards so the restaurant was not at all crowded. Instead of being seated at one of the many empty tables at a window overlooking the beach, we were seated at an interior table with a bit of a view. Despite this less than welcoming reception, we did enjoy a very nice meal of fresh seafood and a delicious wine recommended by our server. It was probably the best meal of our vacation, but it was also the most expensive BY FAR. We did, however, order from the 3 course prie fixe menus and did not leave hungry!
