We arrived without a reservation and we were accomodated despite a nearly full house. Our experience was thoroughly pleasant. A warm and friendly place with a chalkboard(s) menu. If you understand proper menu planning, based on current availabilities in the area, ad well as how a real chef creates a daily menu, you will enjoy your time here. We had... More

Charming tiny restaurant. A very old fashioned and welcoming French atmosphere. A limited menu on blackboards. Service a mite slow at first but fine after we had ordered. Very good simple food. On the expensive side but I guess that is typical of Honfleur. Two courses each, a bottle of wine and a bottle of water and two coffees: €121.

Our host recommended warmly. He eats there regularly. So we went. It started quite well- the foie gras was excellent and the Chinon wine was the right companion . Then they brought the main courses, and eventhough a priori warned, they did add vinegar to the salad they put on top. They took the salad, still the vinegar contaminated the... More

Restaurant was recommended to us and was worth the visit. Honfleur is an expensive tourist town, so while this restaurant may seem pricey collared to others in the region it's v good value for Honfleur. Service was good and helpful with explanations of menu. Recommended

Having tried several restaurants in honflur, we wanted something different. This bistro was charming with a lovely atmosphere. Our waitress was very helpful in explaining the dishes on the blackboard ( no menus). The food was delicious especially the duck, which although pink, had the texture of butter. Would definitely eat here again if in the locality.

We had the table by the window in this small restaurant with a good view of the old harbor. The food is very good, and a good bargain, and the atmosphere is relaxed. The owner of the restaurant is charming and makes you feel welcome.

Waited over 30 minutes for order to be taken. Other guests arriving after us were attended to before us. Nice view over the harbour that palls when thirsty and hungry. No offer of drinks or water whilst we are waiting for our order to be taken. By the time we were seen, the fish had all gone. But the lamb... More

Walked in without reservation and had a very nice dinner. Delicious cod with herb sauce and the best even chocolate mousse. Accompanied by a somewhat young Pouilly Fume. Service is good. Only 3 people on staff. So take your time and enjoy the view and special lamps. Or pet the dog :)

We called in at 9.45 in the evening there were about 3 tables with diners. We asked if we could just have coffee and brandies. The lady was most unwelcoming but it was cold and wet outside so we persevered. Although not serving the other diners we had to go to the tiny counter to ask again to be served... More
