When we planned our visit to Honfleur we wanted to captrue the warm sunny feeling of Monet's paintings and this little cafe, right on the waterfront gave us exactly that. My husband had delicious mussels and I had fish soup. Both were delicious. Our server was very friendly, efficient and did not rush us, as we wanted to stay and... More

The title says it all. The location on a sunny day to sit outside and enjoy the ambience is what its all about. Prices are high you pay for the location and the set price menu is affordable but you get what you pay for. A la carte you can eat well with a decent wine for 50eu a head... More

Service and view were great but the food was truly awful. Everything tasted like it had been cooked on a very unclean grill. The steak was literally 'as tough as old boots', the cod inedible. The chicken was as average as a chicken dish could be and the sea bass had some weird congealed bits on the skin (although it... More

Given our poor judgement of, for once, choosing our lunch place for ambience instead of previous visitors records, we had a late lunch here. Poor food. Poor kitchen skills. Poor ingredients. What a disappointment. Langoustines were not fresh, choucroute witch tasted like old mans finger, don't get me started on the gambas. Avoid!

We had lunch here - local speciality Moules & Frites - it was delicious. Staff were very attentive and efficient, as this restaurant is on a very busy thoroughfare, so they try to move people on quickly, but they didn't rush us at all. Beautiful setting overlooking the harbour and great place to people watch and relax. We ate at... More

Don't expect miracles foodwise. We went here because they had a table free with a good view. We took moules cambembert, small size moules, but in total enough and good combination with the cambembert.

This is one of the most beautiful French coastal towns and this restaurant like so many others is on the main street facing the water; we had a wonderful lunch and enjoyed spending much time enjoying the scene and people watching.

We were in Honfleur for a cruise ship stop and while walking the harbor area with friends, decided on L'Abricotier. This was strictly a blind, pot luck selection. We speak no French and the young waiter was helpful in the selection of our meals. The view (and Honfleur as a whole) was magnificent. The food was average, the price high... More

We went for lunch here on a Saturday and arrived at noon on the dot to ensure we got a prime seat. The mussels and oysters were divine, the service efficient and friendly. My fish dish wasn't superb but the atmosphere and starter made up for it. Worth a visit!
