Had read the reviews on tripadvisor and decided this was the place to go for our last meal before returning home after touring France and Spain for a month. We were not disappointed as this turned out to be one of the best meals of our holiday. Yes it is a little more expensive than others in Honfleur but the... More

We had been recommended a restaurant by the hotel, but when we arrived the place was empty so we decided to go and look elsewhere It was out of season and this place seemed the busiest so decided to eat here. We are so glad we did, we had a lovely evening with great food and wine. We would defiantly... More

Monday evening late September. A full restaurant must be indicative of the popularity and quality of the restaurant. Great atmosphere and brilliantly friendly staff to accompany good wine and tasty food. Not cheap but.... Well worth a visit and if you are lucky enough to get a window seat the view over the Basin is just fantastic, even at this... More

Food was excellent, nothing less than one would expect from a good French restaurant. True gourmet cooking! I chose the duck and my husband had the steak.

Had dinner here on recommendation from our Hotel. The food was okay, nothing special. The waiter seemed to delight in my inability to interpret the menu (it was in French). Overall wasn't the best restaurant experience we had in France.

We booked ahead, and were glad of this when we saw people being turned away as the restaurant was full. The poisson soup and coconut veloute with prawns were both amazing starters, and I can highly recommend the pork main course. The service was just impeccable and our waiter spoke very good English. There's a lot of restaurants to choose... More

We had an outstanding dinner in this lovely small restaurant. Food and wine both exquisite and I cannot imagine how this is not the No. 1 place to go for foodies in Honfleur!

A full restaurant on a Monday night is usually a good sign and the food here is quite good I thought there was too much cumin on the crab stater and at 20eu you should have been able to taste the crab. The filet steak was cooked correctly and had an excellent truffle sauce.

Great food, great service, wonderful experience. Esp the main course (caballiaut) was lovely, but starter and finish were delicious too.
