Away from the hustle & bustle of the port, Bacaretto was warm, quirky & authentically French - on that note, this is a great place to practice your French. Both the owners speak a little English but are very supportive of learners (like me!) The menu was spread across little blackboards, scattered throughout the restaurant. A petit library on the walls and a collage of random prints complemented by empty bottles - it is all so random but really makes you feel relaxed & at home - it's down to earth. Food is fresh, inspired by home cooking and full of flavours. Drinks work on a 'surprise' basis, with new 'drops' being served every week/month. Great galettes, scrumptious crepes (choose from salted caramel of peppered chocolate!) & juicy seafood. Put it on your list if you are coming to Honfleur - and dont be put of by the humble exterior and interior - this place is memorable.

Good products.I was not impressed by the wine. Particulary the association of a minervois with a salad of duck -

Walking into the Bacaretto we almost walked out again as the tables were covered with plastic table cloths and looked more of a cafe than a restaurant. Really pleased we stayed however! When you look more closely a lot of care had gone into the restaurant surroundings.
First thing to note is that there did not appear to be any menus. What was on offer was written on small placards around the room. On offer were various galets and regional dishes such as blood sausage (black pudding) and chacouterie. Great fun trying to find out what everything was as definite language barrier in that our French is awful and the owners somewhat limited!
Food was delicious and the atmosphere was very warm and inviting. I think the words quirky have been used to describe this restaurant. I would agree with the added comment that the food was excellent.

What a great place - a wine bar that does some delicious food on the side! Wonderfully quirky - the menu is written on little blackboards hanging on the walls from left to right, starters to sweets. Try the excellent cheeseboard and the superb variations of Calvados. Well worth a return visit.

Great place to try some unusual wines, interesting interior with so much to take in, the toilet is probably one of the best in France it's worth going in just use the loo!!
Don't expect the warmest of welcomes as a tourist but just. Enjoy the ambience and the superb wines of the day!
