This is a place where they should have the best place for fine dining on the top of Omaha. But they just decided to make money without value. Most of it is coming from frozen products and you pay the high price for it. Don't go.

Our Omaha Beach tour group of about 16 people stopped here for a prearranged lunch. We had preordered our meals when we booked the tour (Bayeaux Tours - outstanding!), with a choice of chicken or fish.
The chicken and au gratin potatoes were very good, as was the service. All the workers spoke a little English, and that, combined with the writer's 20 words of French, was more than enough for the purpose.
Of course, the highlight is the stunning views of Omaha Beach. It almost seems wrong to sit there and enjoy lunch against a backdrop where so many brave people perished.
Strongly recommended; this is the place for lunch when you're visiting Omaha and associated sites.

We visited Omaha, Juno, and Utah beaches. None was more eye opening than Omaha. We were lucky to be there at low tide, exactly as it was when the invasion started. To see the 400 yards of open sand surrounded by hills with dense undergrowth and few places to move through to safety speaks volume on what the invasion soldier faced during the invasion of Normandy. It is amazing that the invasion was successful. To hear the story, if a small number of things had not happened to the German forces manning the beach, we would not have been successful. We also went to Point Du Hoc, the location of the German guns with a full view of all the invasion beaches. There are still giant shell craters left there from the invasion. I actually scooped up some sand in a plastic bag and brought it home because that was a far more meaningful memento than anything I could buy in one of the tourist shops. This is a place you will visit and remember your whole life.

This little eatery (located on the bottom half of the building) had good pizzas and sandwiches, but the star of the menu was definitely the moules. Great place for either lunch or dinner, the comfortable terrace overlooks Omaha Beach while the cozy interior displays old pictures from WWII.

We booked Hotel du Casino as a recommendation from one of the travel books. We are so glad we did. We ended up arriving late after a work conference in Paris, and they were ready for us. They have a small restaurant and bar. The tables are always ready for the guests, they are totally personable with each of you and you are never hurried, and always welcomed. The breakfast is more continental, but totally wonderful, the jams are home made. Amazing this place made it through the war. Julia checked us in, and out, and was there for breakfast for us. Dinner was outstanding. There isn't a lot at this location from a bar scene or restaurant scene, so very low key and restful. It is a great launching point to see the other Normandy beaches and history museums. I would go back in a heart beat! Thank you Julia!
