Had a great dinner here. If you love meat, this is your kind of place. The small portion size of the entrecote is 250 grams and that comes with frites, baked potato and vegetables. One other patron order the 500 gram version, literally shouted "Holy Moley" and proceeded to work his way through it. We saw deserts being served and... More

Had a great lunch here. The portions are enormous and please do not be tempted to go for the larger steak. The 250 grams entrecôte is more than enough. It's cooked to perfection and served with delicious chips, baked potatoes and vegetables. In truth it's too much but enjoyable. Could not help partaking of the mouse au chocolate which is... More

Good food, and plenty of it. The restaurant itself is situated on Purple Heart Lane so has a historical context to it. No English menus, so if your French isn't up to much you may struggle.

We arrived late on a Sunday lunchtime after spending the morning in the nature reserve just over the road. The dining room is nicely decorated and has a convivial atmosphere. Our "moules frites" were the best we'd tasted for years. The mussels were fresh and plump, the chips thin, golden and crisp. Portions were huge. The restaurant also does pizzas,... More

Not a bad option for dinner. Reasonable prices and menu options. Don't expect much English speaking going on - this is a local joint. Everyone is friendly.

We enjoyed the food at this restaurant but found the atmosphere a little strange. We stopped here for dinner twice during our time in Normandy (at about 7:00 pm), and both times we were the only customers in the place! The waiter didn't really speak much English and my French is quite rusty so it was a bit difficult figuring... More

A warm summer (2015) afternoon eating well-prepared food outside a very lovely little restaurant near Carentan in Normandy. Easy to find if you're a local... a little more difficult if you're a tourist but it's worth persevering.

I was in France on business and traveling with a large group of very picky eaters that weren't all that adventurous in nature. Luckily we looked up this place and decided to stop in. The menu not only had French cuisine but it had things like hamburgers and pizzas so needless to say it was very accommodating. There wasn't a... More
