This restaurant has a creative bent. I always admire talented chefs who try to do somethings new-their own way. That involves taking some risks. In the case of our main courses, sweetbreads and fish in a celery cream sauce with pasta, the novelties turned out well-tasty, substantial portions of attractive and insightful courses attractive to the eyes and the palate....

You are spoilt for choice in the establishment. The food is superb and presented beautifully. We had a portion of Langoustines with a delicious mayonnaise to start, followed by Fresh Oysters. For main we both had the Veal, see the photograph. It was a perfect piece of fillet cooked beautifully. There was a Middle Eastern flavour to the dish which... More

We stopped here for lunch and had the most amazing seafood with lobster plate. It was beautifully presented and the staff were very attentive. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys fresh seafood.

Having lived in Normandy for 7 years, upon checking Tripadvisor i finally decided to try La Citadelle (one of the only ones I haven't tried on the harbourside). It was packed and understaffed and therefore the service was at first perfunctory and then virtually non-existent apart from the wine waiter. My first problem: portion sizes on both starter and mains... More

Had a lovely dinner here Oysters to die for. I had the monkfish which was superb. My husband had the veal. Also excellent The service is ok. Staff try hard but could do with more training. They struggle to know the menu and wine list Worth a visit

We liked everything about this restaurant, the ambiance, the food and the service. I had the ravioli and the pigeon, both delicious. Unfortunately, i can't remember the fish that my wife had, probably because she wouldn't give me a taste, but she was very pleased. We had a window seat with a view of the harbor.

The food in La Citadelle is great. The menus are creative and have a good price point. The only significant issue with this restaurant is the FRONT OF HOUSE. It is a shame that a restaurant that (according to TripAdvisor) is standing out lacks in a proper front of house management. I had the feeling that all waitresses including the... More

We'd wandered up and down by the port looking for a restaurant and found this. They weren't open but the lady in charge booked us in when they did at 12.15. She was a bit officious and we weren't allowed to stop for a drink first. When we did arrive were shown to a table inside which was nice and... More
