I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before going because at the time of writing, this doesn't rate too highly. HOWEVER, our meal was very good. We visited off season and were the first in that evening. We were joined by two other tables later on and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. We had the set choices. OK so... More

Very pleasant setting by the side of the Bassin in Honfleur, with attentive service. However, the moules were not anything special - we had much better elsewhere. Located in a bit of a tourist trap, so not trying hard enough.

From the moment we sat down the Waiter was rude. Whether because we were English and everyone else was French, we don't know. We only wanted one course as we had a big lunch. The Waiter took the order but seemed put out that my partner didn't order a drink. The mussels were good but the main course chicken Cesar... More

Rude service from the waiter when he realised we only wanted 4 drinks and two plates of chips for my young daughters...response from waiter was 'are you joking?'....er no...I really want just 4 drinks and two fries for €32...the management excused the remark 'as its not a bar'.. Pity as we may have revisited later that evening.... Avoid, there are... More

We have the skate fish dish with a cheese dish as a starter, and it was very good. We come from Norway and are use to really good fish, but we can tell that this was exellente. And the price was very nice. Our children have crepè and they really enjoyed it. We can absolutly recommend this resturant.

Firstly this restaurant is "Au boit du quai" not "O boit.." Secondly, it is 20-22 Quai Sainte Catherine. Now you know that keep away. I ordered a galette which was inedible. At first I thought it was just uncooked on one side, so I complained and got served an identical one. Then I realised that the problem was most likely... More

A beautiful place like the inner harbour of Honfleur doesn't deserve a restaurant like this. We probably should have taken the hint when we spotted unclean cutlery and glasses with lip stick stains. But, the night before we had an excellent experience at one of the neighbours so we decided to stay. We chose the special menu of the night.... More

We sat in this restaurant and did not feel very welcome, the staff totally ignored us, they were waiting for a large group and we felt so unwelcome that we decided to leave after a while. Good decision, since we found a much warmer place a short distance away (Café de Paris). Stay well away, there are many other places... More

Sorry, but to be avoided. We ordered two standard menus of +-18 Euro each. The fish soup was only luke warm. They forgot to bring one appetizer. The moules frites were dry and they forgot to bring the "frites". It took forever to get our food. #beh

Go for the set menu and you will not be disappointed. Fresh seafood, tasty meat and good cheeses as dessert. Both waitresses are very helpful and good humoured, quite refreshing in this very touristic area.
