Best Honfleur meal so far. Waiter was absolutely charming. Would be happy to eat there every night. We ate oysters, taboule with prawns, duck, rum baba and pear and chocolate cake. Restaurant is situated in a beautiful square and it is dog friendly.

This was our last night in Honfleur and we made the mistake of returning to this restaurant as we'd had a wonderful meal there 10 years previously. The years have not been kind to it. First off, the service was awful. It took 20 minutes...More

We ate here three times during our stay. Twice I ordered Coquille St. Jacques (freshly caught sea scallops) and once Rump Steak. Reasonably priced local cider accompanied every meal. In each instance, the food was beautifully served and the wait staff attentive.

Had a delicious meal here with two family members in June. Hope to return on my next visit to Honfleur. The owner is very friendly and informative about the menu and the wine. The ambiance is lovely for a relaxed meal. Easy to recommend .
