Came here on recommendation for our hotel. The place is a lot bigger than it looks, and all rooms feature huge fireplaces (not lit when we were there, but guess they will be soon).

Opted for the basic E19 menu, which featured 4 courses. Choices were adequate, and looked appealing, but previous experience of "going cheap" in France had done nothing to raise expectations. However, this time it was great choice. Great food, served hot, by pleasant staff. And good wine to boot!

Excellent choice

For over 5 years that we lived in Bernay we have many times dined in the Bistrot and have never been disappointed about the quality of food, selection of wines and friendliness of service!

In a charming side road of the main street of the city centre with beautiful 17th/18th century houses, the bistrot offers complete menus from ca 20€ to 40€ including the typical "trou normande" (apple sorbet with Calvados) and of course Normandy cheeses.

Beside the menu the Bistrot also offer "à la carte" with a fine selection of different sort of Tartiflette.

As owner of the guesthouse La Ferme en Ville in Bernay this restaurant is one of our recommendations to our guests and we have not had one guest returning from dinner that hasn't popped by the reception afterwards to thank us for the recommendation and the good meal!

The Bistrot was busy, and not without good reason. It is conveniently situated in the centre of Bernay, in rather a picturesque street.
We followed a 'formule' and it was good value. There was an extensive wine list and I enjoyed a Gewurtztraminer at the end of the meal.

We arrived with high hopes but sadly these were soon dashed. The proprietress gave us one of those looks that made us feel that we either smelt of something unpleasant or that we just needed treating badly.
In their defence the Tartiflette was ok but the waiter ignored our request for our son's food which he then refused to eat. So if you want a warm welcome I strongly suggest standing in the Normandy rain.
To add insult to injury they examined my 100 euro note for authenticity! Perhaps they have never seen one before!

We have stayed in Bernay on several occasions, and have usually found a majority of the restaurants closed due to our choice of nights (Sundays and Mondays). We were very pleased this time to have a fairly wide choice. The menu and overall ambiance of this Bistro looked very inviting so we made it our choice.
Sadly the food was average and didn't live up to expectations. Also the service lacked the warmth we associate with the restaurants we use in France on a regular basis. Perhaps it was just an off night ?
