We ate here our first night in Honfleur, walking from our B&B (Rosebud). It was recommended by our B&B, and is the closest restaurant to that B&B, and is located on a side street and not in the main restaurant area of Honfleur. It was a Thursday, about 8:45pm, and fairly busy, but we did get in without a reservation. However, we past this restaurant on the next several nights and it was full, so I’d recommend reservations.

We ordered from a set menu, which was a good value at about 30 Euros. There were a couple of other choices available ala carte, but the choices on the menu were acceptable, though like many menus, limited to 4 or so choices for each course.

The food starter and main courses were pretty good. My starter (which in France is an Entrée) was oysters, which were fresh (as you’d expect in that part of France). My main (Plat) was a beef dish in a pot, served with potatoes and vegetables (Mijoté de boeuf façon bourguignon). My dessert, which was a chocolate cake, was fabulous. My wife, who normally doesn’t eat much dessert, tried a bite and really liked it as well. We ordered wine by the glass, which was decent and reasonably priced.

Service was pretty good, and friendly. Americans might consider it a bit slow, but it’s normal for France, where they aren’t trying to turn the table several times a night. They won’t rush you, and you’ll need to ask for the bill. We sat near the door, which was open, allowing some fresh air to reach us. The main area of the restaurant was warm, and I can only imagine when full, gets even more so. It didn’t appear to be air conditioned, I’d be prepared to roll-up my sleeves, or tale off a sweater if it got warm.

Visited this restaurant during a short trip to Honfleur. We had read the great reviews and were looking forward to dining there. We found the food average and over priced. The wine was also over priced and not good quality. Ambience great and unusual, but did not compensate for the poor dining experience. Staff seemed inexperienced.

Like most others have said, excellent service, menu and food.
Get there early (best to book) and you get a choice of tables, no views but we chose a low glass table with two comfortable leather chairs. Very different and memorable experience.

You have to search to find this excellent restaurant but it really worth it. You need to book as it is very busy. Food was good, particularly the seafood and the staff were helpful, speaking excellent English.
