We were lucky to get a table here as we hadn't booked and were surprised by how busy it was on a Tuesday evening in late September. The food was superb, really decent sized portions, all cooked fresh to order and good value for money. We were recommended this place by two locals and they weren't wrong. If we're ever... More

This restaurant is very nice and characteristic. The waitresses are kind and helpful and the food is amazing! I had salmon with potatoes and my friend had a typical dish from Normandy, a bowl of mussels. The desserts are also delicious and I recommend the crepe with apple marmelade. I will probably go back to this place when I visit... More

Good food and an open fire used for cooking. Gets very busy so recommend you prebook. The mixed grill was good - portion size average.

Visited on 14th July for dinner. The steak was a little tough but the salmon inside was raw. My wife left it and the waiter commented it was a little undercooked. No refund or apology though. It was undercooked even by French standards. Service was good and quick but we won't be returning.

I have been visiting Etretat with my in-laws since the early 90's, and La Flotille is a family tradition (even before the current owners). It's standards have never slipped and you are guaranteed a pleasant meal, at a reasonable price (unlike the "tourist" restaurants on the front and main square which serve average food at €€€ prices - €94 for...

We popped in for a snack lunch on a quiet Monday. Good service and reasonable prices for a seaside resort. Our crepes were delicious with tasty savoury fillings. Local cider authentic.

After reading the reviews of this restaurant we were determined to eat here after doing the sites in Etretat, which is gorgeous, and worth the trip. We live in The Netherlands, which has fabulous mussels, and were excited to get some fabulous French ones. The entire table ordered mussels. Every pot smelled like a bad sea, they were terribly overcooked... More
