Our family stopped here en route from Sahurs to Chebourg. We were so delighted with our choice. 3 course meal for Euro17 - great value. Food was excellent. I had scallop soup, followed by pan fried sole on bed of leeks and ile flottante for desert. Mussels were excellent. Seafood platter is very good. Creme brûlée was amazing! Good atmosphere.... More

I am an absolute fan of seafood. I went there and had one of the best seafood meal of my life: fresh, tasty and delicately seasoned... I will come back...

We went there just yesterday on a Sunday evening. The food was terrific! The seafoods were fresh and prices were reasonable. The 3-dish course is great for everyone if you don't know what to have.

Stopped in Honfleur on a day trip from Rouen . Amidst all the restaurants along the port this one struck our fancy. Extensive seafood menu ! Moules and Frites were what we were looking for that day . Delicious large pot of small Moules , those are the ones we love the best . Lovely crisp fries on the side... More

The food was good, nothing bad about it but the staff was a little bit unfriendly and we waited a very long time to get the bill.... We had to stand up and go at the counter cause no one was caring about us. A bit expensive regarding the food quality

Sat down here for lunch, and right from the get go we we're treated very badly. The food was just about OK, but the service and the attitude with which we we're served really took the biscuit. Pretty much ignored most of the time, dishes we're served one at a time and they overcharged to boot. Its not that we... More

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant's sister establishment (L'Absinthe) the night before, so decided to give the bistro "version" a try the next night. Granted there is a difference in price between both restaurants (about 30% for a comparable meal in our case), but in our opinion there is also a world of difference in the dining experience...

Had a most enjoyable lunch, in this busy restaurant. Friendly and efficient staff, in a pleasant environment. We had a 3 course menu, which included a variety of dishes rarely encountered on set menus. Everything was fresh, vibrant and very tasty.

Located on the delightful waterfront of Honfleur, this charming bistro offers a wide array of delicious seafood dishes....they even have frog's legs for the daring among you...I tasted them and they were wonderful. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the atmosphere was cheerful. If you are in the area of this seaside town, please drop by.

This was a recommendation from the staff at Ferme Saint Sineon . Excellent choice for seafood. Very casual and down by the water , facing the river. . NOT the harbour . We had crab and lobster and it was delicious. ( the lobsters are the smaller variety ..not the huge Main type) service was good, friendly, fresh seafood ,... More
