Tucked away in a small street in the historic center of Cherbourg, you will find a 1 Michelin star restaurant. The limited number of tables guarantees perfect service. The choice of dishes/menus is not overwhelming, but are carefully selected and are sufficient. Noteworthy is the...More

A very warm welcome, easy to book, (online from England). We ordered the four-course menu, but with the extra "samplers" etc I counted nine (quite small) courses altogether and every one a treat! English language of staff was adequate. Michelin recommended.

Worth coming over from Portsmouth for a special meal. Not particular family friendly due to haute cuisine menu. Modern twist on traditional Norman ingredients, flavours and dishes. Superb wine menu. Attentive, welcoming and polite staff. Highly recommended.
