We went for a meal here on my 60th birthday and I was certainly not disappointed! We chose from the Erik Satie menu and had the duckling followed by the mango and passionfruit souffle with ginger ice cream. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. I do not normally eat desserts but I am very glad I made an exception on this occasion - the souffle was to die for!
Service was efficient and friendly too.
Not the cheapest place to eat in Honfleur but a real treat for a special occasion.

We decided for a this restaurant for it's 2-fork Michelin recommandation, nice location and excellent service... and were not disappointed !
Top french "savoir vivre" and exceptional service with personalized approach, take your time and go for the specialities, this experience deserves a nice champagne at opening , followed by a great wine (remarkable wine-card by the way !)...
Certainly not for every day but most worthwhile for a true gastronomic experience :-)
Terminate your dinner with an Armagnac and enjoy the brilliance of the eyes of your lover !

Premium food and excellent service in this restaurant.
The food is top grade (seafood, fish and meat).
Wine are well-chosen and the selection of their cave is for every taste in white and red.
