This has to be the third time we've eaten at this little restaurant. It is perfectly located, just off the motorway north of Rouen. Saves you having to try to park and choose a restaurant in the city. And once again, we had a fabulous lunch. Starters were salmon terrine (him), and quail terrine (me). Followed by trout with almonds. Lightly fried, then scattered with toasted almonds. Basted with Buttery and lemony juice , and served with freshly cooked veg and rice . Utterly delicious. And the price was also reasonable. Can really recommend.

We first found this place by chance - looking for lunch on the way up to Calais, and roadworks in Rouen threw us 'off piste'. And by chance, just outside Rouen, just off the motorway, the small village of Isneauville surprised us with this fabulous eatery.
Second time round, our visit was planned. We were not disappointed. Welcomed by the daughter of Madam, who does the cooking, we explained that was our second visit. Menu like last time - you get to choose between the 'gourmet' menu and the 'ordinary' one. But ordinary is not adequate to describe it! Set menu ( ordinary) gives you three courses for 13,90E. Upmarket one was 17,90. But you can swing between the two as each course is priced separately. We chose from the cheaper menu - started with pork terrine - home made and truly delicious. Then pork filet with a sauce based on beer ( reminder - this is northern France), and as an option a light curry sauce - very mild but tasty. Served with salad and fries. Very nice glass of red wine to go with ( extra cost). We didn't have the dessert - too full of food!
Really good welcome - good service. Total cost 35,80E . And we shall return! Perfect location - great food.

This was a lunchtime stop after several hours on the road in driving snow! We had ahead a late ferry, so decided to have a 'proper' lunch. Road works in Rouen altered our plans and we ended up in Isneauville - just outside Rouen - by accident. What luck!
Lunchtime menu was either E13.50 (2 courses) or E19.00. ( 3 courses) We could mix and match from a range of starters, mains and desserts. Some more luxurious than others. We had rabbit with apricot sauce - it came with fries and a little salad. Absolutely delicious. Then a creme brulee - superb - just the right amount of richness and plenty of vanilla.
Service was charming - efficient - and without delay. VERY tasty fresh bread - this had not been cut for hours and drying out in a basket.
The restaurant was busy - and this is a dot of a place so had no huge area to get customers from. A good sign that so many were eating here.
We have definitely noted this for future stops. No need to try to park in the centre of Rouen - but no distance from the motorway either. And if you're getting a late ferry from Calais and want to have a decent meal then this is a really good stop.
