We had sole and steak with cider sauce. Both dishes were very good, the restaurant carries the "Home Made" Label, which means you won't get frozen produce (except for the french fries, which they told us when we ordered). Staff very enthusiastic, sometimes a bit too much, always running thus disturbing people eating. But overall a good place and worth... More

Probably a good restaurant if you want to eat shell fish. The sole was disappointing and lacking in flavour and relatively expensive. The service was excellent.

We spotted this place 2 years ago as we drove along the seafront killing time before our ferry, having just paid too much for an average meal in a street in the centre of Caen that looks like tourist trap alley. So this time we did it right and had a great meal at a good price. I had a... More

We had a lovely evening here. We decided to try an evening meal out with the kids 6 and 4. The restaurant agreed to open at six rather than seven. Our son had the formule enfant, chicken nuggets and chips then ice cream. Our daughter decided she would copy Mummy and had smoked salmon then shell on king prawns. The... More

We stopped here for seafood after visiting some of the sites in the area. The food is good enough to make you want to come back for another visit. The view of the beach enhances the dining experience.

We were a large party of all ages including children. An excellent unhurried meal, really good sea food and very reasonably priced. A delightful friendly restaurant

In front of sword beach, this restaurant is nothing special... With his poor and old fashion decoration, the only great dish was "moules frites au camembert" (lots of them); the fish was not great. The cider was also really good!

i have seen this place many times when walking along Sword Beach but this time we popped in for a Saturday lunch. The place was full. We got a table but others were later turned away. There were only two waiters and they were worked off their feet literally running at times. My wife had mussels and chips which she... More

After a weeks stay in central France I was delighted with the food and service everywhere I went. Looking forward to my last meal in France before boarding the ferry, we stopped in to this restaurant. I ordered a salad described as having asparagus and green beans and tuna. I have to honestly say it was the worst salad I... More

Popped in for lunch. Stunning view and excellent food. Well worth the drive out from the main harbour area. Very friendly event though we came in right at the end of lunch time and were very much the last to leave.
