I'd heard good things about this little restaurant near the Marina but I left quite disappointed. My starter of lentils and smoked salmon was pleasant however my steak was tough and the desert average. The restaurant was full and only had one waiter who was run off her feet. It made it difficult to order anything extra and it took... More

Sweet traditional bistro by the swing bridge, away from the tourist restaurants and in a different class to them. Go for the superb fish but leave room for the heavenly calvados soufflé. Not expensive even after eating off the chalked carte. Lovely atmosphere at lunch. It would be incredibly cosy on a wintry day.

For some reason, although we have lived part of the year in France for 15 years and have heard of this place from many sources, we had never been. That was a mistake. This is an excellent tiny bistro of the sort France was once famous for and which are now sadly being displaced by pizzerias and the sort of... More

Wonderful little bistro off the beaten track in Dieppe. I ordered off the Plat menu posted on the board for 31E. My other family members ordered a la carte. The same items were available on mine, only smaller portions which suited me fine as I was anxious to try as much as possible. The fresh fish of the day was... More

I was quite hungry but was trying to limit my budget while tasting local food. I only took one meal (although it was on the 30E menu and the food on my neighbours' plates looked amazing). I'm glad I did because I was so full! Portions are really generous (not what I was expected from my experience with french restaurant... More

RESERVATION REQUIRED The local people filled this restaurant the twice we dined there. Situated between the two bridges it is a 15 minute walk from the centre of town. Beautifully presented, lovely flavours, fully recommend. Both times we had the 30Euro menu. Great choices of three courses. Good Bar. Diners are taken at intervals so service is excellent from the...

Le Bistrot du Pollet has room for only about 25 to 30 people. Do reserve. And choose from the day's specials as they will be fresh from the sea. We've a flat in Dieppe and have a special night out once or twice a year at Le Pollet and are never disappointed. Yes, one waitress usually, so don't get up... More

Not located next to the harbour area,you need a car or taxi to get there,we arrived at opening time of 7.30pm,and by 8.30,the restaurant was fully occupied.That put the sole waitress under a lot of pressure,however she is obviously used to this as she was flying around the tables without any complaint. Cooking is mainly based on seafood which was... More

My wife selected soles from the a la carte menu, while I decided to try the Lobster risotto. Her meal was fine, but the risotto lacked flavour and fish. We later saw large portions of this dish left on the table by other diners, so I wasn't apparently the only person similarly underwhelmed. For 25 euros a portion this was... More

I guess the husband cook and the wife serves... Very warm restaurant who offers a very good cuisine at prices you can not find anywhere.... I am not too much into sweet but the huge baba au rhum hapily made me change my mind that night. The lady just leaves the rhum bottle on the table and here you go....!
