Walking in on a Saturday evening with no reservations, we were graciously seated together and made to feel at home. The place has a wonderful, warm family atmosphere and the food was magnificent for not only the adults but the children as well. Definitely get the banana split!!!

I was walking up and down the main drag and decided to try La Fringale - glad I did. I ordered the set 3 course meal and was pleasantly surprised by the quality. Best pate I had in France!

Our choice of Restaurant was a good one. Warm and welcoming on a cold December night. We enjoyed one of the best cooked duck breast meals served in a honey sauce with frites and green salad. We asked for rare and it was perfect. The staff were attentive and made sure it was cooked exactly as we wanted. The wine... More

We spent one night in Bayeux after the summer season and came across this restaurant whilst trying to find somewhere to eat. Luckily for us, La Fringale was open and had an inviting menu to entice us in! Fortunately for the restaurant and for us(!) they were open and popular - we were surprised to find much of the town...

Moules (mussels) and fries very good 13.80€. Huge salad with bacon, tomatoes, and fried potatoes 11.90€ was delicious. The cream puff desert with ice cream and hot chocolate 8€ was awesome. Cozy inside, earnest, hospitable wait staff. Food came out hot.

Walked in based on menu choice, price and number of people already in. The food, service and overall cost were all good. A carafe of wine was exceptional value. Friendly staff who didn't rush us at any time, but responded when needed. Nothing to fault it.

The restaurant is family run and the waitress was a daughter of the owner. She was very friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed our dinner very much. We had dined at three places in Bayeux and enjoyed this place the most.

Had a lovely dinner here with my family- great food and good price. Lovely waitress who was sympathetic to my poor French but coped with it all the same. Would recommend this place for a lovely family meal. Great wine and cider too.

We visited this restaurant based upon is perceived popularity when we were at the restaraunt next door on the previous night. Regrettably it was a big mistake!! The food was without doubt the worst we have eaten in all of our visits to France. Food over priced and poor quality. Drinks over priced. Definitely will not return.

Thank John M
