I made reservations a bit late by phone. The owner called me to say that yes, there was still a table available, but not a very good one. We went anyway. The table might not have been their best one, but it was still fine. Very correct service! Food was very good, not expensive at all, great wine too and... More

Overall a nice restaurant worth the visit BUT: The guests are too loud...either the tables are too close to each other or they haven't understood the significance of dining quietly! My starter was nice, a Foie Gras but not perfectly prepared as they were still a few nerves not pulled out as it should have been so nice but not... More

It has now been over 6 months since my wife and I visited Bayeux and La Rapiere (see my prior post from roughly June). I cannot get this meal off of my mind. When I daydream at work, I think of the day I spent meandering the near by beaches, then decompressing with the city (town?) of Bayeux and finishing... More

My wife and I and two friends enjoyed dinner at La Rapiere on a Thursday evening in September 2016. The waiters were very professional and the food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their menu choices very much as well as their wine. This was definitely a first-class dining experience. This restaurant is located in a 15th century building in historic Bayeux.

La Rapiere is seriously good! Three of us visited there on the first night of a four-day stay in Bayeux while visiting WW11 landmarks. We chose here following some research and a good look at the menus. We expected it to be an excellent meal and we weren't disappointed. We all ate from the E52 menu and all began with... More

I visited this restaurant with friends and the location, menu, wine list, ambience, décor is absolutely perfect. The gourmet or 'plaisir' menus are stunning and very good value with six or seven courses. Food is outstanding and although the wine prices are steep, they are of very high quality. Will DEFINITELY return

The food, staff, and atmosphere were perfect after a day of touring. While the menu was pricy, the food and atmosphere were fun and unique. The salted lamb was exquisite and the fish was fabulous. Our favorite meal while in town.

Fine dining restaurant. The food is well prepared and the menu is extensive enough (see foto's). Friendly service who are very willing to adapt the dishes in case of special needs. House wine is already of a decent quality.

We were lucky enough to get a reservation at this delightful and delicious spot for our last meal in Bayeux. Our expectations were high from reading previous reviews and we were NOT disappointed. In fact, our expectations were exceeded. We were greeted warmly by the lovely owner and treated so well being given perfect advice on our meal selections and... More
