We waited 15 minutes to get the menu - we made our choice, but no one ever appeared again. So after 40 minutes without drink or food, we left.

My Internet wasn't working as I normally check reviews before dining. Amateur service and overpriced average food. We went early so thought that was the reason the restaurant was empty😱 !!

Amateur service and cooking, pretentious bio menu, expensive. A tourist trap. Andouillette bio at 19.50 euros should have been a treat, instead smallest andouillette i ever had, no taste, luke warm. And that's less difficult to cook than a hot dog. Good fries, though.

We sat down feeling hungry at 7.55 p.m. When the bread came around 8.30 our hopes were raised but our food was not served until 8.55 p.m. My Moules Marinières were not pleasant to eat and I could not finish them. There was little evidence of the cooking liquid which is what makes this mussels dish usually so delicious. My... More

The building is another old, architectural jewel made from wood in Etretat. When entering the restaurant the welcome was hectic but friendly, the atmosphere due to the age of the rooms top. The dishes served were in summery from acceptable quality. Some good, some not so.... The kitchen of the restaurant can unfortunately not keep up with its "packaging"!

Nothing extraordinary, just as you'd expect a touristic restaurant to be. Tuna steak was good, but it costed 28 euros. They have a daily menu, but the portions are small and not amazing. If you go for a coke, you'll get its "organic & fair trade" equivalent (picture attached)

It was a busy day in Etretat, every restaurant was full for lunch. This one is strategically situated and have many tables, the tables are in the street, so we saw a beautiful and big dish, full of sea food on the tables and decided to eat there. Our waitress didn't speak english, anyway we tried to point our choices... More
