Living in a small village near Lisieux , we have visited a few times, for both lunch and in the evening. Front of house always good, and the food is excellent. Well prepared, cooked and presented. Excellent and would fully recommend

Worth trying if you are visiting the basilica as it is only a two minute walk away. We had the three course Escale Touristique which was good value at 13.90 euros. The food was well cooked and the staff were pleasant.

Located next door to the Basilica - which is well worth a visit - the food was amazing. Fantastic customer service for our family too. Would definitely recommend.

On the basis of the favourable reviews, my wife and I tried this restaurant on a rainy day in Lisieux. We were pleased to see so many locals dining in this restaurant - always an encouraging sign. It clearly catered for a business / retail clientele. We were shown to a table for two. The tables were so close that... More

From the street this café looks small but when our family of five visited this restaurant by chance in April, 2013 we were all pleasantly surprised at the spacious and modern restaurant inside. The staff were very helpful to us Anglais and we all enjoyed lunch. The restaurant is clean, clearly popular locally, and good value. Merci bien à tous... More

This restaurant is certainly clean, welcoming and well presented but they seem to have a problem with the food. I had lunch there which began reasonably with a starter caoulette of mussels. It tasted well but the gratineed cheese came off in strips. The main course - supreme de pintaude was awful. A greasy piece of unseasoned meat with even... More

We had lunch here on December 5, 2012. We were welcomed warmly and seated promptly at a lovely table. The service and the food were excellent. The retaurant was attractive outside and inside; very clean including the "facilities." We could not have asked for a more gracious host or better food. I strongly recommend this if you are visiting the... More
