The hotel Carmin recommended this restaurant which is just two blocks away. We each had main dish salads for lunch, too huge to eat it all but very good. They are open all day till midnight. It was very full at lunchtime mostly with locals.

Nice dishes choices. The sting ray fish dish was delicious. The mussels were a little bit sandy to me however the cheese sauce was amazing and made the difference. Unfortunately, the service was not there, the waiter was impatient and was not attentive.

Had dinner with 2 friends from work. Pretty good crowd for a Tuesday in January. Sat in an enclosed area outside which was pretty tight quarters. Food was good, had a starter salad which could easliy be shared between 3 people.

This is one of the most popular restaurants in Le Havre so get a reservation if you're planning to eat here. It's always very busy and loud, but the food is very good, many dishes are real home-cooked. Food is French/Alsace and dishes are abundant. You'll not go hungry. Service was good for the number who people who were being... More

The food and surroundings were very busy, if you plan on eathing here I would recommend reservations. The sausage was great as well as the seafood plater. Do not orwswr the plater unless you like snails...as you can tell I am American. If you drink too much they have a special urinal with handles!!

Ordered a salad and much of lettuce was rotten. Pointed it out and sent it back. Still charged for it, however. Bread came late, waiters did not speak english. Ordered the large platter as recommended and put way too many almonds and another shellfish on it. Table was too small for the dish. Will not recommend this restaurant.

This is a very popular restaurant and has an extensive menu. However, there are literally no choices for vegetarians (unless you eat fish). The seafood my friends had looked very nice but was rather pricey. The service was very good although the servers seemed rushed.

Fabulous service and excellent quality of food. We were with French family friends and the ambiance and professionalism of the staff were of the highest quality. The place is spotlessly clean and it is clear the standard of service was exemplary. Would recommend this place to anyone for a meal prior to catching the ferry to Portsmouth. If you prefer... More

We were staying in honfleur but decided to travel out, this is honestly the best seafood platter I've ever had. 65 euros for two and it was more than enough! Wish we could get this in the UK
