We've eaten out a lot in Honfleur over the last few years but only discovered this restaurant this trip. The restaurant is located in a quaint street and is beautifully decorated inside with a cosy feel. We ordered off of the 31€ and 41€ set menus and could not fault a single dish. Particularly worthy of a mention is the... More

We chose this restaurant because it offers a vegetarian menu, which is hard to find in Honfleur. This menu was good, but the regular menu was pretty average. Overall, although fresh ingredients were used, the food did not impress me and I left the restaurant disappointed. The restaurant was understaffed: it took ages to get waited on, and of course...

We stayed in Honfleur for the night before going home on the Caen ferry, as ever eating out as a vegetarian in France with a husband who loves proper cooking in smart restaurants had again been a challenge on our short break. Stealing myself for yet another pizza we found this restaurant by chance, what a treat! The vegetarian menu... More

I made my first visit to the restaurant on 11th April 2017 and found that the restaurant is friendly well run and serves well presented and well cooked food. My group enjoyed the experience and one of my group was a vegitarian and was given a vegitarian option from the menu.i will be using the restaurant again.

On reading the Trip Advisor reports we really fancied visiting this restaurant but unfortunately it was closed. By chance we saw the lights on it was early and the place was empty and we got a table. When we left it was completely full and l understand why. The Manageress spoke excellent English and advised us on our wine and... More

We ate twice at this restaurant two years ago - and really enjoyed the whole experience. I found it again on Google Street View - turn right out of the Boudin Museum, and it's about 100 metres on the left going down the street. Our third meal was better than ever. The style is French with a subtle hint of... More

I went with my boyfriend in September, and we knew this was going to be the one expensive meal of our holiday (and it was!), the food was utterly fab and the service was good, we got the 3 course menu (not the most expensive one, I think it was around 35€ a head), and a bottle of wine with...

End of a fortnight multi-stop driving holiday through France. Honfleur was pretty busy and some of the more famous restaurants were fully booked, so we popped into La Tortue: Good things: - Quaint, comfortable, simple, French feel - Really friendly staff - made to feel very welcome - Food was excellent and the wine list complemented it well - Reasonably...

We read the reviews on Trip Advisor and headed for this restaurant. Needed to reserve a table as people were being turned away. We are so pleased we ate here. It was very friendly and the food was amazing. Typical French cuisine.

I highly recommend this place. This restaurant is going out of the crowd and the hustle from the harbor of Honfleur. The chef Romain has a really significant culinary experience thanks to his past work has an Executive Chef in several locations over the globe. The menu is short and the ingredients are all local, you should try the apple... More
