We ate twice at Le Bougnot in 5 days. Wonderful food, especially the profiteroles, and friendly attentive service, even on a busy Saturday night. Reasonable prices given the quality. We will return next time we are in Normandy!

This is our second visit to Le Bougnat & was even better than before. The food is exceptional,locally sourced, beautifully presented & generous. Service is faultless & very attentive. We opted for the 28euro 4 course which is great value. Was expecting a Tuesday evening to be quiet but not at all, great buzzy atmosphere. Love this restaurant! Thank you!

We have been visiting this place since the late nineties and we still love to go there. Great rustic food and a nice atmosphere. I personally love their foie gras and the cote de veau. Unfortunately there is only indoor seating due to the location but the decoration is interesting and it has two stories - I like it better... More

...in an ordinary little coastal town on an ordinary stretch of Normany coast. The menu was ordinary - herrings with potato salad, ordinarily dull and over-salted, an ordinary fish soup that could have been bought in an ordinary shop, served by ordinarily forgetful and dismal staff. I think the ordinary fries were frozen - ordinarily they are in ordinary restaurants.... More

In a very quiet outskirt of the city, we took (a long) walk from Grand Hotel Cabourg, but it was worth it. It is a very french bistro with friendly service and typical french food. Both fish and meat was good and the prices a very low. Would love to go again.

Staying in Dives sure mere, we checked trip advisor for restaurants. We needed to look no further than Le Bougnat, we had dinner twice as the food and choice for meat eaters was so good. Steaks, lamb, pork all were excellent. The Faux Filet was enormous, the Tournedos Rossini delicious and the Carre d'agneau so tender. The portions were good... More

During a recent 5 day visit to Dives sur Mer and after much investigation we chose to have our first dinner at this restaurant and our expectations were exceeded. The food was of the highest quality, the service was warm, helpful and efficient and the menu was devoid of the reference to Frittes with everything! We were so impressed we... More

We went on a Sunday, which was busy but not full. Good service and food. Some English is spoken by the younger staff (although I can understand the menu and make myself understood). Worth booking just in case.

After our last poor experience we hadn't been for a while, however there is not much else available at this time of year. Service was much better than last time and there were many new faces, who were all friendly. This is still a mainly meat restaurant, although the menu now has a lot more choice of fish. The fish...
