This is an amazing little restaurant near Cabourg. We will definitely eat here again. In fact, you can take the overnight ferry from Portsmouth, have a day shopping eating and sightseeing, buy wine book in for an early dinner here then catch the late night overnight ferry back. It is authentic regional cuisine. The owner chef is constantly changing and... More

After visiting the Pegasus Bridge memorial we drove along the coast looking for a restaurant and we came across this little gem. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and seated by the roaring log fire which was later to cook our meal. The service was prompt polite and all overseen by Thierry Ramard the owner and Chef. We... More

We found this restaurant after searching Tripadvisor. Good menu and excellent little extras. The Chef / owner is a significant part of the meal and experience. We loved the food, the service and the open fire, where they prepared some of the food. The food was presented lovely and tasted divine. Highly recommended, we plan a return visit New Years... More

We had a fantastic meal - service was great and the chef took the time to translate everything on the menu for us. Atmosphere is relaxed and very cosy with a huge, open fire where the chef cooks the meat The foie gras for entree was one of the best we have had and the chateaubriand was perfectly cooked. We...

This meal was all we had hoped for after a long drive from the south. We always travel back on the Ouistreham-Portsmouth ferry but our usual dining place is shut on Sunday evenings, so we were delighted to find Au Pied des Marais was open. The meal started with a delicious asparagus amuse bouche, then starters (I had veloute), main... More

The owners are probably not interested in something like a Michelin star, but the quality of the dishes they are serving cames very close. You will not have trouble finding a good menu - allthough the card is limited which in general is a good sign - with the help of the chef. Several dishes are very specific for this... More

We visited with friends not realising what a quality restaurant we were going to! We had not booked but were accommodated in the front part of the restaurant as the more cosy area near the fire was fully occupied. It is this chimney area that the wonderful chef patron Thierry Ramard uses to cook a lot of the dishes. There... More
