I have eaten in this restaurant on previous visits to Siante Marie du Mont and always enjoyed great food. But what makes this place a must to visit is the real french welcome the waitress the owners the chef give always. If in the area eat here you will enjoy, more than happy to recomend.

Went here with a group of friends while staying very close by. This give the advantage of being able to relax and enjoy the wine too. The list by the way is very reasonably priced. We had a crisp Alsace white and a Pinot from burgundy, after an aperitifs/beers. The food is rustic, but delicious and reflects the ingredients of... More

We arrived to a quiet St Marie DuMont and were worried about fjnding somewhere to eat. This small and cosy restaurant was just what we were looing for. A three course meal for 25 euros was excellent. Great menu options and size of portions left us full as an egg. friendly staff made the evening a delight. HIGHLY recommend

Highly recommended by our B&B host this fine restaurant did not disappoint. Food is excellent with varying choices for different courses and the service is responsive and cordial. The portions are grand by French restaurant standards noting the huge lamb shank in the accompanying photo. Sauces including an au poivre, bearnaise, regional cheese sauce and a lovely veloute accompanying the... More

Coming back from Utah beach, and was hungry, did not expect to have the best steak EVER, and super service, my travel mate had the pork medallions, and it was extremely tender, again best every. So the BEST Recommendation from my side, if I'm in the area again I would definitely go to this restaurant 👍👍👍👍👍

We were on our last day of our Touring Caravan Holiday at Camping Le Cormoran on Utah Beach and decided to try this Restaurant 'out' at Sainte Marie Du Mont, which was only a few miles away. What a great decision that was, we were seated in the outside terrace by a very attentive waiter who spoke immaculate english and... More

Amazing place. The food is out of this world. The service is impeccable too. Tucked away in a charming little place, they really know how to look after you. Highly recommend the prawns with an amazing citrusy sauce.... Beautiful. The tarte tatin is to die for... Fantastic place.

We had lunch here after visiting the Utah Beach D-Day Museum. It was one of the few places in the town that didn't stop serving after 2pm (very helpful for tourists that are not on a schedule). The food was fabulous and the prices very reasonable. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for a suberb place to dine when you are near Utah Beach, this is the place to go. Located in main square of the small village of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, the restaurant is hard to miss as you drive through town on the D913 road. Though our French is poor, the maitre'd knew some English and made us... More

By chance found this restaurant on our first day and the mussels were the best we have tasted, attempted a return visit a week later but it was packed, managed to get in on our last day and had starters and main meal. Hubby not too impressed with his cod fish but he liked the pork dish ordered by daughter,... More
