We sat outside waiting for service 15 minutes while staff walked by us and served other customers that arrived after us.

Brought to the restaurant by our tour guide...excellent lunch, which differs from meals past guides had taken us to in France and Italy...mussels/fries were great, as was the Croque monsieur...on a warm day, the first beer sip was heavenly

From a choice of venues for lunch the Cafe Du Port stood out as an ideal venue, with great views and a classic "cafe menu" of local dishes to choose from coupled with a great service from the friendly staff.
A definite place to stop on any Normandy tour.

Excellent place for lunch!!!! The mussels are outstanding. Tiny place but fantastic value...one of the best meals/values we had in 2 weeks in France. Our awesome guide, Francois, took us there!

Last time we were in Grandcamp Maisy we were a little disappointed with the restaurant we used so, on this occasion, we thought we would try the Cafe du Port for a Moules Frites lunch before returning to Cherbourg for our boat home. We were not disappointed.

The cafe is just that, rather than a restaurant, but in the tradition of good French cafes, the food was very nicely prepared and delicious. There were tables outside under a nice shady awning (very necessary with the temperature at about 29 degrees!) with a view looking out over the harbour.

The only moules dish on the menu was Moules a la Creme with Frites, and that suited us just fine. The mussels were plump, cooked just right and plentiful and the sauce was good enough to finish off with a spoon at the end. The frites were thin, crunchy and also beautifully cooked. We washed it all down with a very nice bottle of farm produced local cider.

Unfortunately they do not do crepes, which would have been our favourite for dessert, but I had a very nice Tarte aux Pommes while my wife had a coffee.

All in all, a very nice way to spend our last lunchtime in France before returning to the UK.
