My wife and I had dinner here after a long day of touring. The service and meal were excellent. We had reservations, but they were not overly busy mid week. The seafood and wine were just the remedy after a long day.

We choose it because it was the only one were we got a table on a Saturday night. Small restaurant, seems less glamorous than the ones surrounding, but we were positively surprised by the food. Maybe not delicatessen, but good quality/price relation taking into account...More

Gill cote bistro is the affordable side of the number one restaurant in Rouen, Gill, a bit too formal and too pricy for the average visitor. But Gill Bistro is just perfect. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly service and just about affordable prices, it's the perfect recipe...More
