We learnt the hard way, that so popular was the restaurant that you had to book in advance. We went on a Thursday evening, most of the diners appeared to be local There were three set menus, all offering a wide variety of typical French meals, . Although the staff spoke little English and we little French, They did their... More

The Vaucelles is a delightful restaurant in every way. It really captures the spirit of a Traditionnal French eatery. Our many dining experiences here have all been wonderful. The menu is filled with tempting choices and the kitchen staff clearly love what they do, very attentive french speaker staff and direction. Just perfect .

We actually ate here twice as it was first class local food,served by two very attentive ladies. At 20 euros each for a three course meal, this was good value. Both evenings there were around 20 French diners, who were clearly locals. We spoke in French but the ladies were happy to speak English as well. Would visit again without... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by our chamber d'hôte hostess. She said it was popular with locals and so it proved on the rainy April Wednesday evening when we visited.It speaks volumes for the restaurants food, service and ambience in a town where there are plenty of choices for tourists and locals that they were full all evening. We... More

We visited Le Vaucelles one wet and windy evening and had a really good dinner. The only criticism we had was that the portions were too generous and we could not do the food justice. Most of the tables were taken with a mixture of age groups and all appeared to be enjoying the experience.

I had a good lunch at this restaurant some time ago and took 2 friends there in October. It was a very quiet night with few diners and so not much atmosphere. I was pleased that there was no music which someone else saw as a drawback. I had a reasonable salad and an excellent hachis de canard. Dessert was... More

Me and my girlfriend visted this lovely restaurant whilst visiting the region last week. we had an excellent 3 course meal for a reasonable price, and can fully recommend the fruits of the sea and chicken supreme. Very friendly staff, lovely clean dining room and great food. The only negative for me (and of course this is very small) is... More

This restaurant was excellent value. Three courses for two plus drinks €40! Very friendly service, in a nice setting. Each course was well presented and well cooked. You will get a good meal here!

We had one meal here and it was very good. They managed to meet the needs of one person with diabetes and one with a strict celiac diet, which is quite an achievement we've found in France, as it seems it's a country that doesn't understand these conditions well. The manager/owner 's English wasn't very good, but with some French... More

Usually I don't post my feedback on internet, but this restaurant deserves it! We were in Normandy to visit landing beaches and this beautiful region. We made a break in this charming town and stop by chance in this restaurant. In few words : great place, quality food, nice and very helpful people. I had chicken supreme with cheese dressing...
