Cosy French bistro style restaurant, brightly coloured in reds and purples very French. Started with escargots nice to have choice of 6 or 12. My other half had skate, which he thought excellent meaty and with a beurre noisettes sauce. I went for the confit of duck with their own sauce which was a Lardon and mushroom based meaty sauce....

Distinctive Menu. Welcoming,easy to find if you walk around the bend of main beach front street. Fresh Farm to Table menu items. Excellent fish, superb seafood platter, camembert and pont l' eveque cheeses of course, nice wine list, try the Pommeau for apero drink. Milles-Feuilles and other desserts real tentalizing. Owners/Hotes Coralie & Kevin make it happen every time

We enjoyed a lovely meal at La Ripalle. There was plenty of choice, the food was well cooked and the service was friendly and efficient. What more could one ask for?

The service was good but the food was expensive for what it was. We had eaten at la Marine the previous evening and for the same price the quality of the food far surpassed this. Maybe I was unlucky with the choices I made but there is no reason to serve bland rice with a bland white fish and only... More

We went in as the first customers at 19hours. Other places were full so we were a bit worried... Maybe it's because it has such mixed reviews on tripadvisor. The decor is attractive, and the food was good. Value for money, too. We had the menu, starters and main. (had already seen an ice-cream place at the beach where we... More

Five of us had dinner here while staying in Arromanches. The restaurant is small but completely charming. Our waitress was tres gentil and forgiving of my poor French while her English was perfect. We enjoyed an aperitif while waiting for our food. The table d'hote allowed a fair choice at reasonable 31e. I was happy with my saumon fume and... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal here, not a huge menu but plenty of options to choose from. The service was great, relaxed but there when you needed them. The food was good, I had a steak which was cooked exactly as I requested and was served with a tasty pepper sauce. The creme brulee was yummy. I would definitely eat... More

This restaurant was recommended by our campsite as we were planning to cycle to Arromanche, 10 miles away. We have realised that lunch is better value - especially now with high prices in France and the terrible exchange rate since Brexit. Lunch was fantastic - tasty goats cheese starter followed by steak audio poivre. Lovely staff too who congratulated me... More
