This place was everything you expect. A small but cozy atmosphere. Excellent servers ( probably a owner), and the food was the best of our two week visit to France, Amsterdam and Germany. Get a reservation as soon as you can. You wont regret it

Excellent presentation of the meal and the wine was great too. We had a great choice of meals. My wife had veal tenderloin which was incredible.

Try to book in advance as we saw quite a few people being turned away because they had not reserved. The staff was very welcoming and attentive, they offered me gluten free bread (I have celiac) which I hadn't even requested! My friend and I had a really wonderful fish dish served in an individual cast iron pot, we both... More

We had dinner there last Saturday and it was excellent. The tasting menus are great and we liked the option that the table doesn't all have to get a tasting menu. My husband had one and I had à la carte. My main course was the veal and it was the best piece of veal I had in a long... More

When we arrived in Bayeux, the hotel manager asked if we needed help with dinner suggestions. I told her we had reservations at La Rapiere, and her response was "can I join you?" The restaurant is easy to find in the center of town, down a little side street. The service was great and the menu fairly easy to understand... More

Excellent fine dining experience. We had booked in advance and found the restaurant tucked away just off the high street. We ordered from the set menu and enjoyed fantastic French cuisine in a lovely setting served expertly. I would highly recommend this restaurant when you visit Bayeax.

Going by the many positive reviews on this gem of a restaurant, I made sure I booked well in advance. Something you must bear in mind as it was full to capacity. From making the reservation, to leaving I can find little negative to say. The staff are all excellent and all speak very good English. The location is lovely... More

Wow. Wow!! We had an absolutely delicious 7-course meal here and highly recommend it for fine dining in Normandy! But make sure you book a reservation! 1st off the entire staff was very friendly and helpful knowing just enough English. Then in addition to the listed courses they surprised us with even more. Every course was a wonderful surprise from... More

Our meal at La Rapiere was excellentfrom amuse bouch to dessert. The food was well prepared and delicious. My only critique would be that service lagged during certain times. All in all, though it was a very good experience.

Make reservations. The food was delicious and the staff was very knowledgable and attentive. The menu offers limited choices, but everything we ordered was fantastic. The server was able to suggest a wine that paired excellent with our meals, and the surprise appertifs were wonderful. This is not a place for children, but luckily we had a sitter for ours.
