The restaurant is on the port, is spacious and has good natural light. We visited at lunch time and both had a plateau of fruits de mer. It was a generous serving of very good shell fish that was well presented. There was good variety...including a whole crab, oysters, langoustine and bulots as well as the more regular inclusions. The service was good and the price reasonable. The service was good and friendly.More

We were a group of 10 looking forward to a relaxing dining experience after a long day's cycling. We were led to our table but no one asked us if we would like a drink. No menus appeared either. After watching other diners coming in...and being served we felt ignored and after 20 minutes complained. Shortly afterwards someone took our drinks order and another waiter threw a pile of menus at the end of our table. At this point we nearly walked out but the prospect of finding somewhere else for 10 diners led us to stay. The food when it finally arrived was very good. Such a shame that such terrible service spoilt what should have been a lovely evening.More

Terrible rude staff and bad tasting seafood served with no passion. We were fooled by some good reviews. All of us were sick afterwards, not excactly the Normandy holiday experience we were hoping for. Avoid at all costs.

We were very excited to visit this restaurant and we even struggled to get the last table, which was outside. But, we were disappointed. The service was so slow that it was hard to even get excited about dinner. If we had known, we would...have gone and had pizza. The food for the kids was dull and while my fish wasn't "bad" it wasn't anything special. I would only recommend going here if you don't mind spending a couple of hours and you aren't starving. It was one of my least favorite meals while visiting France.More

This is the seventh time am coming to this restaurant and have never been disappointed. Everything is cooked with heart and you can feel it with the taste, the presentation and all what is around (sauce, decorations). And they have improved the bread which is...much better. And don’t forget to have a cup of coffee and enjoy the madeleine. Everything is homemade. Just one remark: usually the service is fast, but yesterday it seems there was a problem of staff and we stayed more than 2 hours.More

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent lunch here yesterday. This makes the 6th time in nearly 30 years that I have experienced the good cooking found in this restaurant. I had the St. Pierre - John Dory while my wife had the Dorade -...Sea Bream. Both dishes were seasoned in such a manner as to bring out the flavor of the dish without being noticeable. My wife said that this was the best fish dinner that she had ever eaten! Highly recommended. I look forward to our next visit.More

Our friends had been eating here before and liked the place, so perhaps we were just unlucky to come on a bad day - or the standard has come down lately. Unorganised taking of orders, food over cooked and served on chipped plates, that is...not ok no matter what type of restaurant you visit. It took ages for the dishes to be cleaned out and no one even bothered to ask us if we wanted coffee or tea. Yes, the restaurant was busy, bu it was quite a lot of staff working, some of who were busy sorting out forks and spoons instead of cleaning tables. Not good enough even in a place where most customers are tourists that are there once and will not be returning customers.More

There is not a lot to say - the staff was friendly and accommodating (and good with our kids). The food was good. I'd go again in heartbeat.

I ate lunch here twice during my stay in the area. I had first dined at this restaurant 25 years ago during a father-son trip to Normandy and had fond memories of the visit. The food was delicious and the service was prompt. Nice view...of the port from my table. I plan to return next June with my wife.More

We had lunch here twice while renting a house in a nearby village. Both times the food and the service was excellent. The first lunch was on Sunday, and the place was packed! Be sure to make a reservation so you won't be disappointed. My...husband had oysters as a starter at both meals- and he said that they were some of the best he has ever had. I had the foie gras, and we both had the veal with mushrooms followed by creme brule. Delicious!! For the second lunch which included another couple, we all really enjoyed the meal. One of us had the terroir menu which included beef cheeks, and the rest of us had seafood- all was excellent. Probably the best meals we had in France on this trip! We did not have it, but several tables around us had seafood pyramids on ice with oysters, crab legs, and a whole variety of shellfish- very impressive presentation- and they all were digging in!!More

Had a lovely meal here one lunchtime ... amazing how busy (for a Monday!), but understood why when we got the food. Two in our party had the oysters, I had a beautiful prawn starter. Mains included a monkfish risotto which was amazing (risotto was...with black squid ink, SO tasty) and a lovely, fresh strawberries sweet. A set menu, not badly priced for the quality (seems more expensive but that's the exchange rate!). All had a kir to start and I had one glass of wine. Unfortunately, my husband went to pay the bill, commented to me it was quite expensive and it was only after we got back to our cottage and I looked a the bill that we saw they'd charged for a full bottle instead of a glass ... so, £25 more than it should have been. Always leaves you wondering and put us off returning. Shame as lovely food.More

On a Shearings coach trip we lunched in Grandcamp Maisy and this pretty much was the first restaurant we saw, looked at another place but returned here because we wanted oysters. We were seated promptly and menus were brought but our we waited some time...for someone to take our order. This of course is perfectly normal in France where any meal is an occasion but when you are with a party of 40 plus and a bus is waiting it was a shame. The location was fantastic, eating overlooking the harbour our oysters were fresh and succulent the wine was chilled and the cidre very palateable £90 for four, pricey but this is France but worth every penny, unfortunately we had to leave before one of our party got his included dessert as the coach was waiting. But would return, the huge seafood platter offerings looked fantastic.More

We come every year and stay in Grandcamp Maisey. Our favourite restaurant has always been La Maree and we always look forward to eating there. This year has been very unexpectedly disappointing. The prices have gone up, but the standards have gone down. Two nights...in a row, we’ve had unseasoned and over cooked fish and dry chicken. The starter and desert courses remained excellent. We wondered if there was a trainee chef on. The service was also less warm than usual. We hope this is a blip and will give it another chance, but will not keep returning unless the standards return to their previous high calibre. We noticed also that the restaurant was less full even in peak season, so perhaps others are also experiencing similar.More

Oh how nice it is to sit with a harbor view in a restaurant which served delicious food. We were part of a tour group (40+) which descended upon this mid sized restaurant. The tour guide took our orders (for one of 3 entrees) and...called it in a few hours before our arrival. The staff efficiently served us without error or issues within a relatively short period of time - they do have their act together. The fish dish was excellent and the beef option was much better than what was served at a small bistro in Paris. The waitress was quick and nimble in order to serve all of us on time. We would love to go back to try out other items on this well respected restaurant.More
