It is always good to enjoy a relaxing meal before boarding a night boat to England, particularly after a long drive through France. I found the ideal restaurant, only ten minutes drive from the ferry port of Caen , but well away from the noise, traffic and bustle of the harbour. This restaurant, in a beautiful old house with a...

Wonderful food, great service and very good value. The staff catered for my husband who is dairy intolerant, my eleven year old daughter who us simply " cheese averse " with patience and quiet efficiency. We had a delicious meal accompanied by an excellent red and all at a very reasonable price. My monkfish was simply divine. We would definitely... More

The family we traded houses with recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. We sat on the charming patio on a beautiful summer evening. The food was very nice and the service top notch. Try the apple dessert - a specialty of the Calvados region.

We were intrigued by the beautiful garden in the old house and wanted to see the... More

Maybe Michelin forgot to rate this restaurant 1 Michelin star, otherwise I would never be able to make a reservation the day itself. This restaurant is a true gem and worth the detour and make sure you save space for the cheese selection. Can't wait to return.

Perhaps we went to La Valise Gourmande on one of their off days, but we left disappointed and considerably out of pocket. The place is elegant in style but absurdly overpriced for what arrived on our plates, which was not particularly appetising, lacked imagination, and was neither gourmand nor gourmet. Truly, we've had better food and far better value in... More
