We enjoyed the experience, the service is great and the quality of the food is great. I really enjoy the limited but changing selection of meals and we had a very enjoyable time

- Excellent food at a reasonable price. - Located close to major tourist attractions such as the cathedral. - As previous reviewers noted, the lunchtime menu is quite small - a 3-course set meal (plus optional cheese) with 2 choices per course. - My appetiser was a large, tasty shrimp salad wrapped in rice paper - an unexpected Vietnamese influence....

Great casual spot with very creative, elegant cuisine. Very friendly and helpful service added to the evening. Both the foie gras starter and duck entree were among the best we had during our trip

This was our second visit to this restaurant (the previous time was 2 years ago) and it was every bit as good, if not better this time. It is only a small restaurant, but it has a lovely atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and helpful and will speak English if required. The menu is small but the food is... More

The Davinator and I arrived here for lunch after a morning of looking at the tapestry and a canter around the Cathedral. We weren't that hungry but we've learned our lesson in France - you eat lunch between 12 and 2 or you go without. Outside looks like a traditional bistro, inside is very modern and the food is also... More

We had an exceptional meal at Au Ptit Bistrot, and it was by far our best dinner in Bayeux. After reading the reviews, we made sure to make a reservation, which was a good thing as the restaurant was filled to capacity, and there were a lot of local people there. My husband and I were warmly welcomed as soon... More

This was probably the fanciest meal we had in Bayeux (that we reasonably could do with a toddler). The food was excellent -- I had cod, which was good, but my wife's beef cheek was outstanding. The meat practically fell apart it was so tender. The space is cozy and modern, and the staff very friendly. They had a high... More

We're spending a few nights in Bayeux and this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. Our dinner was good but not amazing. My husband ordered fish with rice sauce and the white sauce covered everything on the plate. Nothing was visible except the sauce. Visually unappealing. The starter had smoked salmon as one of the components and I thought it... More

This is a small friendly restaurant which seems to be very popular with the locals, which is always a good sign. While we were there there was a stream of customers being turned away so booking is essential. The clientèle were mostly couples with one group of 5. The room was brightly lit but the atmosphere was suitable for a... More
