The restaurant was pretty empty when we walked in but was relatively full by the time we left. Fun decor and friendly service.

Second time I’ve visited this restaurant on two separate trips to Caen quite a few years apart. Lovely steaks and great staff. Really can’t fault this restaurant and would visit again if I were to visit Caen again. Reasonably priced too.

Hi. I am not sure whether they do have gluten free options. What I can say is that the head waiter was very helpful when it came to the menu options and meeting our needs.
