My starter was fish soup but we so full of bones I could hardly eat it. My main was grilled steak and chips. I asked for it a point but it was really overcooked and gristly. It didn't come with chips either. My dessert was apple tart. The pastry was soggy and it was served with aerosol cream. I guess... More

We have been dining at the Roulis for a number of years while waiting for the ferry. Always very welcoming, helpful (I am coeliac) and serving delicious food. Nous nous arretons toujours au Roulis en attendant le ferry pour Portsmouth. Tres accueillant, cuisine delicieuse.

Thursday night in February, we chose Le Roulis because there were a few tables occupied. Warm welcome into a cosy restaurant. We both chose the €15.50 menu,fish soup and fish tartare to start, followed by steak frites and beef bourguignons. Starters were good, though the soup was a bit salty for me. Steak was tender and cooked as I wanted... More

We turned up at Le Roulis on a miserable early January evening, without a reservation, and were delighted with the whole experience. The welcome was warm, the service attentive and, above all, the food was excellent - particularly the chocolate fondant at the close of the meal. We will certainly go back.

It's not often you get such a wide variety of reviews ranging from the "never again" variety to the "always excellent." I've eaten here several times because like nearly all reviewers I arrive in good time for the 11:00pm ferry and it's an ideal place for an evening meal being so close to the ferry terminal. It's true that the... More

Not too many places open at this time of year in Ouistreham. Le Roulius was and good it is too. Had 27 menu and my wife has 17. Both were good. Steak dish on the 27 was a stand-out as was the chocolate dessert. Skate on the 17 also very good. Very pleasant service and nice overall atmosphere.

We chose this restaurant mainly because of the Tripadvisor reviews, but also because we visited on a Monday evening and in France that means most places are closed. The service was very good but the food was poor in almost every respect. We chose the second most expensive menu which was 27 euros I think. My starter was tempura vegetables... More

Welcomed, food and service was perfect. When we arrive at 19:00 and not boarding the ferry until 22:30 we don't want to be rushed and they don't.

Le Roulis is one of a handful of eating establishments situated just 3 or 4 hundred meters from the ferry terminal at Caen/Ouistreham. Plenty of parking nearby too. We have eaten there 5 or 6 times before catching the overnight ferry to Portsmouth, so I thought a review was somewhat overdue. We have found the food and service to be... More
