Le Coq Noir was recommended by the hotel staff. I was not disappointed. Exceptional menu choices with wide range of French and Italian wines. Service was equally exceptional. Meal and its presentation were likewise an enjoyable surprise. You will not be disappointed in dining at this restaurant. Within a block or so of the Ibis Caen where I stayed.

Visited on a dull Saturday lunchtime. Went for menu of the day. Three choices for each course. Great value. I had muscles, followed by pasta in a walnut sauce and fromage frail with fruit coulis. All excellent. My wife had roasted vegetables followed by roast pork. Highly recommended

I could not fault this little, informal Italian restaurant. I wish we had come for dinner and not just a lunch. The menu, price, food, wine and service were each superb. How can you not give 5 out of 5? It had not pretensions and delivered more than its promise; who could ask for more?

Every box for a great Italian meal is ticked. Simple, non pretentious food, packed full of flavour and a very welcoming and warm ambiance. Unfortunately I drove that night, so was unable to sample the wide array of wines on offer. Very generous portions, all brought to your table by very friendly and attentive staff who made me and my... More

Very good selection of fresh antipasti, and Italian cheeses. The fresh pasta are good too, but the cooked lasagna were a bit disappointing (too heavy and stuffed). Will go back though!

This is an Italian restaurant with an imaginative menu and reasonable prices. The food was fresh and very flavoursome and the wine list was interesting, nicely complementing the dishes. The service was good, paced just right, friendly people and a nice atmosphere. We were very pleased to find this in Caen, tucked just round the corner from the marina. A... More

Plates of food were delicious, large and made with the freshest ingredients. Our group of six enjoyed a memorable evening. A great... More

We came here for a family meal. I was on the set menu (vegetarian friendly) but before dessert the youngest member of our entourage announced he was ready for bed. Unperturbed, our waitress suggested we take dessert away as a take out. Perfect! Family friendly, vegetarian friendly, and just... friendly.
