We have dined here in the past. The dining room was excellent as was the menu and service. When we went in March 2108, it had totally changed. After being seated and seeing the menu we walked out. Not what it used to be.

We enjoyed a wonderful gourmet lunch of camembert tartlets, guinea fowl and poached pears with Normandy cider. I would recommend you pay the Lion d'or a visit and enjoy a wonderful gourmet lunch at a reasonable prices.

We had a very enjoyable meal, however the staff were frantically rushing around and made us feel rather edgy. It was a shame as it created a not very relaxed atmosphere and slightly took the edge off what was otherwise an excellent birhday treat for...More

Another highly rated restaurant from Google Maps and the Bayeux tourist brochure. The restaurant is part of the hotel with the same name and tucked away off the main street so very quiet. There is a nice patio and also tables available inside. The food...More

At the centre of Bayeux, enjoy regional and seasonal products at the Lion d'Or Restaurant. This restaurant, at the heart of the Normandy region, gives guests the opportunity to try some of the specialities of this rich gastronomic area. Chef Jérôme Alix has designed several set menus as well as a generous à la carte menu. In the restaurant itself or on its terrace, you can savour suckling veal bred in Normandy, for example, before delving into a selection of local cheese and finishing in style with an apple Saint-Honoré cake, accompanied by a light Calvados cream and cider caramel.
