My husband and I ate at l'Eden while we were staying in Villers sur Mer. We had a wonderful evening. The food was fabulous and the service was great. I have food sensitivities and the staff went out of their way to make sure I had no gluten or dairy in my dinner. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We looked in on L'Eden at lunchtime on Sunday after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. It lives up to other positive reviews and is immaculate inside. We asked if we could book a table for 3 and wondered if we could bring in our small dog. They said no problem in English. We arrived at 7.00pm shown to a corner table,... More

A refined french cuisine in a seaside town, a rare find. the appetiser of queue de boeuf meat rolled around foie gras was a great way to eat ox tail. The duck breast was good and the chocolate desert too. The wine list is impressive in its quality, variety (all french) but it is not put together half hazardly, really... More

Ate here last week. Our waiter was very good at explaining the menu in English to us. When deciding on what to order and what wine to choose we were served with the amuse bouche which was a small bowl of soup. We still had our menus in front of us so we couldn't eat the soup until the menus... More

Splendid restaurant in a charming seaside town. We had a very good and very long dinner here (we enjoyed taking our time, it's not that the service was slow). Friendly service that was not patronising. Great food (really excellent oysters). Splendid wine list that I didn't really test to the full. All in a calm and warm setting, the kind... More

If you are looking for a place to have a "special dinner" (birthday, romantic etc), that's the restaurant in Houlgate you want. The food is very good, midway between traditional and sophisticated French cuisine. Service is great. Little hint: get the Paris Brest for dessert, it's exquisite.
