En français plus bas *** Nice but nothing memorable The food was good. Fish was good, so were the few different vegetarian main dishes I would have enjoyed my dinner at la Croix d'Or if the service was less uptight and gave us a smile :) *** Repas de qualité, bon poisson et bonnes options végétariennes Le bémol majeur: service...

Fantastic experience. Outstanding food and selection of wine. Highly recommended and we were served by Max who could not have been more accommodating and helpful. A little oasis

Host was very brusque and cold. Seated in back room with large party (10-12) of German tourists, so service was very slow at first. Waiter made a good effort, but had large task. Food was very good and was presented well. Wine was excellent. Prices were reasonable for a restaurant of this caliber and ambiance was actually very nice. Cannot... More

A little like eating in a museum or posh antique shop. Arrive early so that you can have a look around. First impression of service - not so good as when I ordered an aperitif of campari, bitters and soda there was no bitters, angostura or otherwise. Once seated there was nothing to complain about but one of my companions... More

We couldn't find a decent restaurant in Avranches until we asked a passer by for help. We stressed we didn't want a crêperie nor a pizzeria, which was all we had seen up till then. She identified that we needed somewhere " gastronomique" and sent us here. The ambiance, the service and the food were all top notch. There are... More

First off, a caveat. I don't tend to give poor reviews, but this was a hugely expensive and lacklustre meal in a hotel that was poorly kept and appeared to be resting on its laurels. We've stayed in places from B+Bs to châteaux on this trip and eaten wonderful meals in places from Routier cafes to Michelin starred restaurants and... More

My husband & I plus our 12 year old boys went to La Croix d'Or for lunch on 24th July 2016. The bar man downstairs was barely helpful as he directed us upstairs to a table. The restaurant upstairs was a lovely setting looking out over the bay - unfortunately the old-ish waitress who seated us and took our order... More

We stopped in Avranches on the way to Caen. We had seen these reviews and decided to eat here. Whilst the food is very good it was still a little off the best as some reviews describe it. Service is not quick so if you are in a hurry move them on a bit! All in all OK but not... More

It was the penultimate night of our vacation in Normandy when we discovered La Croix d'Or and regret not having found it sooner, as the menu was excellent and I could have worked my way through just about every dish, given time. Food was excellent and traditional French and it is easy to see why it is so highly regarded... More
