The food is very good, and rustic in style, and we felt as if we were eating in the home of a very talented chef, but one with too many guests.

Casual and quirky one woman show. We waited quite awhile for service and soon realized the owner/chef truly does almost everything herself, which makes for an intimate but somewhat awkward dining experience. The food is very good, and rustic in style, and we felt as if we were eating in the home of a very talented chef, but one with too many guests. Everything was prepared well and delicious: really good bread, a tomato tarte, winter vegetable soup, a great veal chop, and my first dish of the addictively tasty and creamy Norman rice pudding, called Teurgole. We might return.

Family-operated small restaurant with great food.

This was a wonderful family-operated small restaurant (only about 10 tables). The menu is written (in French) on blackboards and changes depending on the season. Owner and staff speak limited English, so it's a great opportunity to use your French!!

We ate here two times during our stay in Honfleur. The first meal for me was a dozen fresh oysters and a small side salad. Tom had a wonderful fresh cod dish. For dessert I had the ile flottant and Tom had a citron tart. With the bottle of wine we ordered (at 32) the total for our meal was 99.

The second time we ate here, we both had a tomato tart which was very filling. For dessert, I again ordered the ile flottant and Tom ordered an apple tart. With two glasses of wine the total came to 64.

Both meals were lovely and the ingredients were definitely very fresh. The homemade bread served was some of the best bread of our stay.
