While we travel a lot in France, maybe 15 times in the last 8 years, we don't make a habit of searching our the "best" restaurants where ever we go. Often we accept the recommendation of our Air BnB host. We did so on our first night in Honfluer. It was a decent meal. After a day visiting the Normandy beaches we came home tired and hungry. Not wanting to seek out a good restaurant on our own we decided to try a cute place close to our apartment, L'ENVIE, what a treat. We had the fix prix menu for 27 Euros.
For starts my wife chose the smoked salmon lentil salad while I had the celery risotto with "raw ham", porchetta, both were surprisingly good. For main courses grilled cod and roasted duckling. Another pleasant surprise. After a Normandy cheese plate came desert. My wife had a peach crumble and a pomme tart for me. The carmel sauce that came with the tart was a bit over done but the only thing that disappointed. Well run restaurant, very good service, good bread, important to me. Again our best restaurant experience in France this trip. And we are foodies. Please give them a try. They deserve it.

There are so many restaurants in Honfleur. We arrived and got our customary 'restaurant anxiety's - scared of making the wrong choice. We walked up and down the harbour, but in our experience often the best food finds are in less obvious places. This place caught my eye as it didn't look to be aimed at tourists and the menu looked value for money. From the moment we went in, everything was very good, from the welcome to the amuse bouche and then into the meal itself. The menu is fairly short but with a good choice of dishes. Everything we had was prepared simply but effectively, and we had a lovely meal in a friendly atmosphere. Recommended.

We arrived in Honfleur later for lunch than planned, and the huge Saturday flea market had made matters worse. As we walked past the tourist office,we saw an empty table and grabbed it. What a lucky decision that was!

We had wonderful entrees followed by mussels, and everything was done perfectly. Including the fries. And, they proudly display the "maison made" logo on their menu.

Our only quibbling complaint: we tried to order our lunch in French, but the server kept switching back to English.

A 3 minute walk away from the touristy & overpriced harbour restaurants you'll find this superb restaurant on the corner directly opposite the Tourist Information Centre Taxi Stand. Between the 4 of us we chose a varied selection of fresh fish, meat and vegetarian options. All were beautifully cooked and presented. Extensive wine list and first class friendly efficient service. English spoken. High standards - excellent value for money.
