We booked a table here as it was D day weekend and the town was very busy. We were so pleased that we did as many people were turned away while we there. There is a very good selection of savoury pancakes (galettes) or omelettes,...More

Great tasting coffee. Good crepe. Sandwiches look a little expensive (€6-10) Nice little place to relax and eat.

Didn't expect anything other than what this charming place promises, what they do here are gallettes and crepes and they do them very well indeed! Excellent food, very reasonable prices and an amusing young waiter sporting a nifty basque beret makes everything a real pleasure....More

Cute and unpretentious place right on the main drag of Arromanches. Service excellent despite the crush. We loved the galettes and crepes, so much better than what we had had to that point. Definitely worth a visit!

You restaurant has been recommended to me but unfortunately you cannot cater for my large group of 58 Veterans/Wives on Sat. 8 Aug. 15. Can you suggest anywhere in Arromanches please?
