Best thing is they gave us an annex with 2 bedrooms together in a newer, uglier section but we were the only rooms on the floor and there was a lift. We could close the main door and have private access between the two rooms - with difficulty as the doors are heavy with strong auto closing. Not easy if... More

Spent a week in Normandy and it was the best meal I had, I had a lamb chop and the selection of cheeses. In my opinion the best meal in town.

Somewhat overpriced and not up to the level it claims to have, a very good restaurant with an outstanding wine selection.

Reasonably priced bar and prix fixe meals but the al carte menu, food and service are 6 star quality and worth taking a 6 hour ferry trip just to dine there. Memorable meals.

Don't hesitate to ask for the tripe. They got a special price from experts and they are worth a trial. The style of the service is quite traditionnal but the content of the plate makes you forgott about that.

It was a great dining experience! The food is absolutly delicious and very unusual - never tried before some of the dishes. But most of all I liked the dessert - it was kind of chocolate fondant - it was awesome!

My friend and I stayed at the hotel and were too tired to venture out to find a restaurant. This restaurant was not what you would expect at a Best Western. We had a 5 course, amazing dinner (cheese cart included) at a price I thought was VERY reasonable (~35 Euros each, without wine). The atmosphere was a little quiet... More
