Lovely cosy restaurant,with friendly service and excellent food, we had lunch here on New Years Eve for the second year and were not disappointed. The "obvious" Oysters and Sea Food Platter are really good but also the steak. Really good meal. Set just behind the...More

We arrived at 7pm on a wet November night and since we were the first guests we sat by the fire. Within half an hour quite a few more tables were taken making a nice atmosphere. The food was excellent. We eat beetroot and goats...More

We ate here three times during our stay. Twice I ordered Coquille St. Jacques (freshly caught sea scallops) and once Rump Steak. Reasonably priced local cider accompanied every meal. In each instance, the food was beautifully served and the wait staff attentive.

Had a delicious meal here with two family members in June. Hope to return on my next visit to Honfleur. The owner is very friendly and informative about the menu and the wine. The ambiance is lovely for a relaxed meal. Easy to recommend .

Felt ripped off here, the food was good without being exceptional, had the cote d'agneau which was stated as 4 cotes on the menu, but only came with 3...small detail, but noticeable. Menu was quite restricted. Good, but there are far better places to eat...More

Meal for two with a carafe of house wine came to over a 100 Euros, so quite frankly expected a higher standard of cuisine. Very average cooking and sadly over priced. There is a lot of competition in Honfleur so would recommend eating elsewhere.
