Vastly over rated. Ok if you like cold fish, if you know good food when you taste it, then this is not for you.

The seafood was fresh and nice, the presentation was well done, the service was a little slow. Unfortunately we are not fluent in the French language although we try.. It was a little difficult/uncomfortable to order but we managed and again, the food was fresh. The location is on the sea, a beautiful view and generous servings.

We always book at the Huitrière when in Etretat and have never been disappointed. Good choice of fresh fish dishes as well as the traditional seafood platters, all with a panoramic sea view from the 1st floor.
