We enjoyed a two course dinner for 29 euros each and the food was excellent - beautifully prepared and presented. There were amuses bouches and chocolates with the coffee which made the experience a little special. The room is very atmospheric with lots of carved beams etc. We would definitely go again

We had a lovely Sunday lunch here in the middle of the village. The building is interesting but there is no ocean view. The service was professional and everything tasted delicious. Try the Champagne Oysters- they are served warm. A local family of 12 was celebrating a birthday here.

This very small and cozy place in the middle of Etretat. I would rank it as a high class restaurant. We never reached the main courses because "les entrées chaudes" were fantastically delicious. Here you could try cooked oysters (in champagne sauce) and hot fois gras with !fois gras flavored ice-cream. Staff is charming and atmospheric is romantic. Try it... More

We had dinner a Saturday evening, three people. We had the evening menu. Small scallops were very fresh but drowned in cream and not vey tasty. The second course was the same, fresh but dull. The personnel was very kind and attentive, the dinning room is very cosy and we had a good time. I don't know the prices and... More

It's too late that I regret not taking pictures. I didn't do so just because we were too busy being surprised by the very poor quality of the food and of the service in this 'top quality fish-restaurant'. We should have known from the start. The amuse-bouche was a flat vegetablisch cold soup in small cup that tasted like the... More

We ate at a busy time but although the tables adjoined able street crowded with tour groups, we managed to enjoy a good meal which was reasonably priced for this town.

Reasonably priced gastronomy, well cooked authentic French food, with local seafood, great cheese and good wine. The set menus are excellent and the food is sensitively cooked. Offal features prominently on the menu (as you would expect) so if you're not keen then just check the translation. Service was speedy and efficient but lacked slightly in engagement with the customers,... More

Had a very pleasant lunch - took the menu of the day and it turned out a good choice. All well presented and very prompt service. Would go again if we are in Etretat in the future

The servers gave the impression they just couldn't be bothered. We had to ask for water and bread, dirty glasses etc. were left on the table. The food was ok, but also seemed a bit tired. They need to lift their game significantly to justify their prices.
