This place was recommended to us by the concierge at our very nice hotel... Such a dissappointment. The oysters were delicious, but the smoked salmon with avocado and crab was really smoked salmon wrapped around tasteless guacamole with a teaspoon of crab sprinkled around the plate. I ordered the special, a steak with bearnaise and what I got was a... More

The plateau de fruits de mer (40€ for 1) is ok, fresh but not extraordinary. Deserts are ok too. Overall we found it pricey even if the service was... More

The froglegs are perhaps the only more special dish on the menu of this restaurant, located on the edge of the harbour area in Honfleur. Furtheron nothing special on the menu, no special dedicated staff and no special chairs and tables. Also the service is average. So a *** review...

Nice restaurant with fantastic seafood. We had the seafood platter which is a touch expensive but was great. Service was also good. It gets busy in the evenings especially weekends so a table reservation is recommended.

The lunch menu or specials are very good value and would recommend. If you link crustaceans this is the place to go. It's all on show on a big ice table.

Our family stopped here en route from Sahurs to Chebourg. We were so delighted with our choice. 3 course meal for Euro17 - great value. Food was excellent. I had scallop soup, followed by pan fried sole on bed of leeks and ile flottante for desert. Mussels were excellent. Seafood platter is very good. Creme brûlée was amazing! Good atmosphere.... More
