Service was good spoke English, English menu but flank steak came out medium rare instead of medium to well.

Changed no problem but it was very chewy, and could eat it. It's a shame as it looks a really nice place in here, wouldn't come back.

We headed here for our last meal in France before the ferry the next day. The waiters were very friendly and bought things for the kids to do. The sevice was very swift which suited us perfectly as we wanted to get to sleep before and early start. Good steak and chips. A great meal out with the family.

It was our first night in France and I was nervous about ordering a meal when the menu is only French. They advertised English speaking waiters and menu. The food and service were good, and the price was reasonable.

We visited Hippopotamus twice while staying in Caen. Both meals were delicious. Beef kebabs and a sundae one night and chicken kebabs and meringue the 2nd visit. Great service.
