Is not the first time I have stayed here. This hotel is perfect for those who want to discover the history of the Normandy landings. Close to the beach, the parking is private. Hotel has its own restaurant, the breakfast is perfect, the food is...excellent. Book a table in advance. Rooms are clean big and nicely decorated, comfortable beds and big bathroom...More

Casual spot. Attached to a hotel. High ceilings and windows all the way around. Nice atmosphere. Park on the street. Staff was friendly and spoke English. We went looking for seafood. An English menu was available. The starters were great! I had the chicken liver...pate which was a huge portion - about a half inch thick and 4 inches long. My fiancé had a wooden board covered with salad, dried meat, cheese and pickled vegetables. Both appetizers were great! The main course was disappointing. My fiancé had a seafood platter. It had oysters, shrimp, sea snails and Norwegian lobsters. The seafood was fresh but definitely not what we expected. The tiny shrimps were boiled with the shells on and too small to peel and eat. The Norwegian lobsters were the size of American jumbo shrimp. Oysters and sea snails were ok but we left the shrimp. I had fish and fries. There were two pieces of breaded fish which were thin and dry. I only ate one of the two pieces. At the table next to us, a French couple was complaining about the curry dish they ordered. He left without eating his. I don’t recommend this place unless you’re going for just starters 😊 We won’t go back.More

Welcoming place for lunch if at the beach. We did not reserve, and they found a place for us. Quiche and salad was good, mussels look great!

Look no further than here for a casual authentic French lunch spot. Arriving just before 2 we were half expecting them to say the kitchen was closed, but not at all and others followed. The menu was full of good wholesome dishes and you knew...the specials of the day would be fresh. We termed the size of the meals as “American” as they were very generous. The only downside was that it was a bit stuffy in the restaurant despite the doors being open.More

This is an ideal location to eat when you are exploring the WW2 beaches. We did not book but we’re lucky as this restaurant is used by many guides for the tour groups. It gets very busy. The restaurant is friendly and welcoming with a...good atmosphere. The menu offers good choices with shell fish the star attraction. We had to wait a little while to have our order taken once seated but we knew we had been squeezed in. The food and service was very good and the price very reasonable.More

Good restaurant near Omaha Beach. Food was good, as was service. Portions are very generous. Highly recommended if you want a good meal while exploring landing beaches.

After a wonderful, long day exploring the Normandy coast I was looking forward to a relaxing dinner. I made a reservation at my lodging host’s suggestion. I arrived and was seated. Atmosphere is nice is the only reason I gave 2 stars vice 1. After...sitting for 20 minutes I finally got up and walked a mere 5’ to the bar and politely asked for a beer. 15 minutes later the waitress arrives and takes my order. Salad was basic but ok. Simply lettuce and cherry tomatoes. Another hour goes by before the Curry Chicken arrives. I had two bites and put it aside. I am the furthest thing from a picky eater but the meal was not good at all. Bland and an odd flavor. I politely told the waitress I was not satisfied with the meal. She took the plate away. After waiting well over an hour for the first plate I was tired and just wanted to get back to my cottage. I had no interest in ordering another plate. After an eternity I asked for the bill and then 10 minutes later I asked a second time. Turns out the manager/bar tender was holding the check for some odd reason. I was told to go to the bar and pay. Never once did he ask how everything was or apologize for the lack of service and the unappetizing meal. Extremely disappointing end to an otherwise perfect day. I cannot recommend this restaurant in fact I recommend you avoid it at all cost. Look elsewhere if you’re in the area.More

Had an excellent lunch on a sunny Sunday in April. The staff were very helpful and gave great service. The smoked salmon and the fish cassoulet were amazing. Great stop for lunch in the area.

The restaurant came recommended to us but we would have done better to have gone elsewhere. We had seafood as a starter, and it was perfectly correct (bulots/whelks well cooked and seasoned with a house-made mayo, oysters). However the both of us decided to order...the fish and chips as a main, and I think it was probably the worst food I've ever eaten in a restaurant setting. Everything was very obviously frozen food that had been reheated. Understandable for fries, of course, but definitely not acceptable for fish, especially at a restaurant located right by the sea. On top of the fact that it was clearly reheated, the dish didn't resemble anything like fish and chips -- two very thin pieces of white fish, covered in totally unseasoned, overcooked breadcrumbs. Other than the taste of burnt bread, it was entirely flavourless and unpleasant to eat, with an extremely crisp coating and thoroughly mushy interior. At nearly 18 euros, this is frankly scandalous. When we mentioned this to the server, we were told this was "unusual" and that the fish was "freshly caught that morning and breaded by the chef" -- clearly false. Avoid this restaurant. It isn't worth your money.More
