The set menu was good value and had a good selection of things to choose from - something for everyone. My son and I had the moules frites. Tasty and what you expect. The rest of the... More

I had the mussels Camembert with pomme frites and they were amazing! They had a special that included a draft Stella and was around 15e. Service was a little slow...however, food was great. You can also access wifi, so great plus!

We were there for the VE weekend and everywhere was busy. This restaurant has a great motto, all our meals come with a smile. The food was good, French fare. the service was excellent and it was very good value for money.

We had a great dinner at this cosy little restaurant in Honfleur! Great service and efficient too! We both had a buckwheat galette, each served with a green salad. We both thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing meal! We had a Picon beer with this, something not available " at home" ... The hint of orange paired beautifully with the crepe. What... More

The food here at lunchtime was ok but the Patron was more interested in talking to his friends at the next table, and sharing wine with them than taking our order. Would not go back. Obviously popular with locals so perhaps he is not interested in visitors who speak French but are not French!

All the top rated restaurants in the area were full, so we thought we'd give this one a go, even though is was pretty empty. Well, we were pleasantly surprised! Very pleasant and prompt service, interesting menu, with lots of seafood options. My husband tried whelks for the first time that he raved about and he also judged the mussels... More

The owners were very accommodating. Good food and all in all, an excellent meal. I would recommend anyone eating out in France to avoid the desserts and go for a Cafe Gourmand, or perhaps in this case, a Cafe Normand! Apple tart, apple sorbet, a small glass of Calvados and a coffee. Superb!
