We have been coming to this restaurant since approximately 1992 and the standards never change, despite the changes in management. The current owners offer a modern style of French cooking and the food is superb. Our latest visit was on a Tuesday lunchtime to celebrate...More

Call ahead for a reservation. It’s like most French nice restaurants and has an expensive fixed price menu. It’s totally worth it. The servers were so absolutely fabulous gentle and spoke good English. It’s a beautiful restaurant with exquisite food. Highly highly recommended!!

Fine dining but also caters to foreign tourists. Excellent service and food. Felt right at home with excellent wait staff. Super quality food with nice menu and good wine selection. Additionally, super cheese selection.

This was one of the best meals we had in France. The value for money is excellent as I am sure this caliber of meal would be almost double the cost in Paris. Service was excellent as was everything we ate. Highly recommend ......

Wonderful food and service. This was our first dinner in France and it was one of the best we had. Recommend recommendations as it is not a large restaurant.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise-the food was exceptional and the service was superb. In fact, we felt this was our best meal in France.

Exceptional service and food to die for, especially the main dish; cod with qinuoa and cashew. It's in the centre of the town itself, but hiding in a small side street from the main one. Stayed in Bayeux for six days, tried six different resturants...More
