We ate here our 3rd and final night in Caen. I chose this place because it had decent reviews on TripAdvisor and because of the name. I love escargot, but they only had one escargot dish on the menu, and it was an appetizer in a casserole dish, not the standard ones in the shell or in a dish smothered... More

I eat in France a lot. This place is right up there with the best. In the centre of town, tucked down a back st but worth looking for.

We always marvel at what great food one can find in out of the way places in France. Let's face it, Caen is not Paris, and this restaurant is not in the trendy part of town, but the food is as good as one would find in NYC or San Francisco, and for a LOT less money. Two entrees and... More

The pan friend foie gras with honey is light and airy, and sweet as well. . .honey. The rib eye was cooked right for an American. The creme brûlée was made with real vanilla beans. The fixed price was reasonable. . .30euros. There is one waitress who spoke English. The rest did not speak English, but they were all so... More

We picked this restaurant based on the TripAdvisor reviews--it was close to our hotel Adagio on a rainy night. Really sort of just a port in the storm choice. There isn't too much around that hotel for dinner. But wow! What a wonderful night. We were a family of 4 and all of us left feeling like we'd had a... More

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident as we were staying at a hotel around the corner. It was an unexpected surprise as to how goo this place was. Authentic French food, everything we had between the three of us was really good. It was so good that we came back here again on the 2nd night. Since we didn't... More
