We dined here on our first night in France and it definitely set the bar high. I had the rabbit which was beautifully cooked and full of flavour. We were very impressed with the selection of cheeses they had which they brought out on a large trolley. The wine was also fantastic. Overall a very good experience and the staff... More

Absolutely delicious. Scallops were fresh and full of flavour as was the beautiful pumpkin soup. For mains the duck breast and veal were again both outstanding. The veal was the best veal I have ever tasted moist and full of flavour. The service was also outstanding and super friendly and warm. Highly recommended this little gem!

We spent three nights in Bayeux, and ate at three wonderful French restaurants, but the La Rapiere wins out for the most creative dinner. In addition to your appetizers and entrees, they bring you small tasting dishes throughout your meal to allow you to try different things. It was a fun and creative way for us to experience true French... More

Had to scramble for a reservation but we scored a 7:30 reservation. It was recommended by some friends who visited Bayeux last year. No complaints at all. My lamb dish was cooked to perfection. My wife enjoyed a delicous fish dinner. Service was very good. Plus, they were playing Bruce Springsteen. Felt like home alright.

We enjoyed our first meal at La Rapiere so much that we came back a second time. We had two of four dinners in Bayeux at La Rapiere. The food is excellent and it is presented beautifully. The service was impeccable. The room is pleasant and tables are nicely spaced. Linda, the owner, is ever present and very charming. We... More
