This restaurant was recommended to us by our host. We ate there two different nights and found the setting wonderful and the staff most helpful and accommodating. The food was excellent and it became apparent to us that the locals ate here. We made reservations both nights and I would recommend anyone eating here to do the same because it... More

This is our go to place in Caen and we visit regularly, usually around Christmas. This is a relaxed but stylish place with excellent choices of food. One day I will pluck up the courage to order a bit of meat rather than one of the specials but they are always amazing. I have had the best steak tartare here.... More

After not being seated for a while, then being reseated and left waiting while customers showing up later than us were served immediately we left the place. We tried to get any waiters attention for a while but then gave up. Incredibly bad experience.

Friendly stuff, nice ambiance, good food. We had the Camembert roti as an appetiser, it was tasty. Then double cote d agneau and a Pavet de Saumon, despite the long waiting time, both dishes were hot and well cooked.

If you love, or even just like, steak, this is the place to go. This is a shrine to all things beef. You can chose literally any part of a cow, have them grill it up however you want, and then enjoy. I don't eat beef tartare, but my friend who got this said it was the best he has... More

Great restaurant serving on Sunday, which deserves the attention. Quality of the food great with very good steak . Original preparation such as hot camembert mixed with apple is exceptional. Deserts are delicious. Waiters are very nice and take care of specific requests such as Baby chairs. We spend wonderful time in this cozy place...The price is very moderate for... More

Filet mignon was excellent as was the service. The Normandy steak was disappointing and chewy unfortunately.

I went here upon the recommendation of the hotel I was staying at and was not disappointed. The charcuterie was very good and the wine selection was decent. I got the filet and it was cooked and seasoned to perfection, simple but delicious. I also tried the crème brulee, which was very good. All in all a wonderful meal.

Thank Lizz H
