Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A beautiful town with a mixture of culture and history. Full of character and charm. The harbour is very picturesque and well worth a spell to just sit and watch the world go by.

Honfleur’s old harbor is the postcard of the Normandy region. The different colored buildings lining the harbor are exactly what you imagine when you think of a medieval French port. It is, however, extremely crowded with tourists and lined with touristy vendors, which spoils the atmosphere to some extent. For a better experience, you’ve got to get a few blocks away from the Harbor and explore the side streets and quaint shops.

We enjoyed everything about this town. It was totally walkable with terrific restaurants, shops and galleries in every nook and cranny. At least two full days is a necessity to see it all.

Absolutely beautiful food and wine. The Chicken in cream sauce was just gorgeous. All meals were amazing! Had a delightful evening here with family. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the staff were lovely and friendly.

Very pretty and visually appealing harbour area. A very pleasant space to enjoy a coffee and contemplation. Lots of places to sit down and eat - although on the pricey side as expected.

We had a nice afternoon strolling through the old harbor area. Unfortunately it was a cloudy day, but we could still see the amazing light on the water.

Old and still active port , if you look for some time you will see a lot of things going on. This makes it fun to see

One of the prettiest sites in the city. This is a place that you will surely want to linger a while, take some photos, find a good place to sit and admire the view. We were lucky to be here on a sunny day.

On the way to Bayeux, we made a stop in Honfleur and didn't regret it. The harbor is worth a short visit. Beautiful old houses with many small restaurants. A large parking lot is located at the harbor after the vieux bassin. Compared to cities like Rouen or Bayeux, there is not much to see in Honfleur besides the short harbor basin. A short stop is therefore enough.

You can get far better coffee and value for money, if you stray off the harbour walk by literally 3 minutes. You really need to be ultra careful - especially when you sit down without viewing the menu. Drinker be aware!
