Very friendly and efficient service. Lovely food ... in particular the Cote de Boeuf (for 2) was delicious.

Parking directly opposite the restaurant was a bonus on a very cold January night. We were on our way the the ferry port for an 11pm sailing and thought we would try a meal in Caen. We picked this one having seen the reviews and in the hope that there would be parking close by - there was and the... More

Our meal was fantastic! The staff was patient and helpful with our very limited French and made a great wine recommendation. Nice atmosphere and beautiful view.

We visited this restaurant on the advice of TA and were not disappointed. We both had starters, (Muscles and Pate), and we both enjoyed a beautifully cooked main. For pudding my partner had 2 of the biggest profiteroles we have ever seen and they tasted delicious!! A great evening out for a reasonable price.

I've decided to go to this restaurant thanks to the reviews on TA and I'm so happy I did so! The restaurant itself is very nice - great atmosphere - and the food is fantastic. The waiter we had didn't speak English, but we managed to understand each other in some way. Highly recommended!

We went to Bistro Basque because of Trip Advisor reviews as well as the hotel staff's recommendations expecting tapas. Fortunately we had not eaten a big lunch because after a shared sardines appetizer we had a fillet of beef and a lamb chops that were extraordinary. The wine selection was excellent and had a red wine I had never heard... More
