We've just had the most disgusting meal we've ever had here. Starter seafood was not fresh and not pleasant but the main course was hideous, beef cheeks, which if cooked well are delightful however obviously this chef does not know how to cook good food. The meat had the most awful stale aftertaste it was how you would imagine dog... More

There are limited dining choices in Pontorson and all of them are ok. This restaurant is run by the owner/chef and we came for an early dinner. The menu is quite extensive and the overall quality of food is good, not overpriced and is a good choice for dinner.

Very good value for money restaurant close to Mt. St. Michel. Well appointed and clean. Food is well presented and ample. Service is friendly and efficient. Aspect is pleasant overlooking a well decorated small roundabout and park beside the river. Go to Mt. St. Michel because it is stunning but eat here because you won't be ripped off at a... More

We decided to order the Filet de bar which was a nice fillet of white fish in a creamy sauce and I ordered the monkfish filet American style which was in a lovely brown sauce.

Enjoyed the food and the service was very good. We had a variety on the menu and it was all good. There is a good variety of selection and my husband and my two children had a lovely meal.

We went to eat to this place after our morning trip to Mont St Michel. We were looking for a more quiet place with reasonable pricing. We took a menu for some 15 Euro per person, and it was excellent! Eggs-mayonaise for some, and terrine for the others as starter, then ham with cider sauce and frend fries, and a... More

Horrible dinner. We took two 18.50 euros menus. The rabbit terrine was okay (but not exciting), but the prawns were really smelly. For the mains : the fish was "okay" but for a menu at this price I would expect the whole thing to be more tasty. But the beef (bavette with shallots) was horrible. It is one of my... More

Lovely restaurant, friendly staff. You will need to book as very popular. All of our party chose something different and everybody had a first class meal.
