Very popular, two fixed price menus, both - and wine list - on boards. Good fairly traditional based food - I had a fillet of mackerel to start and then slow cooked beef cheeks in wine, which was delicious.

We went here on recommendation of hotel and walked over. The food exceeded expectations. Presentation, temperature, taste were all exceptional. Compared to better restaurants in Paris. My fish was perfect and the squash side was delicious. Also the desserts were yummy.

Gary - you're more than welcome to come to my house for dinner on Saturday but I live in Lancashire not Caen. Sorry - you must have sent to me by mistake. Andrew
Are there B and Bs in the neighborhood where we could stay on the night we dine at your resturants?

Yes there are some nice B&B places easily within walking distance. We stayed at Le Clos Saint Martin - very quirky and they make their own yoghurt as part of breakfast, which was the best I've ever tasted!!
I am bringing upto 30 sailors over to celebrate Bastille Day and wonder if you can offer us dinner on the evening of Wednesday 13th July. Regards, Trevor Barker.

You need to direct your question to the restaurant. I only reviewed it. They can fit 30 in though but they are normally busy so book early!!
