We had nice Plat du Jour in one of the only open restaurants recommended in Bayeux. Nice house wine and liked our respective meals but short on the house bread offerings

We didn't know quite what to expect and chose this cafe because it was busy and the menu seemd alluring. We weren't disappointed. I has a cassolet with duck and a sausage. Out came a large bowl of the cassolet. It was absolutely delicious and had more than a genrous serving of meat. The service was adequate- what you would... More

We had already tried a couple of other places to eat in town so we wanted to share our patronage with some other places. We chose this place as it looked reasonable, homey and the menu looked okay. We ordered and the bar tender who also took our order brought our drinks and with it 4 slices of a baggette... More

This is way to expensive. We feel we've been ripped off. We ordered 2 Stella Artois and paid immediately after receiving our drinks with a €50 bill. The waiter returned €14... without giving us a receipt. My friend noticed this immediately and told the waiter he paid €50. We then received a 20€ bill. So, in total we paid €16... More

This is a very popular restaurant in Bayeux and was certainly very busy when we visited. Crepes and galettes seemed to me to be the equivalent of burgers to other parts of the Western World. It is a high turnover place in a quaint restored mill. Service was prompt and efficient- it is a very friendly place. The food was... More

Only stopped for a drink, the young lad that served us was nice enough but the older women who I think was the owner and her husband really need to be less grumpy and unwelcoming. Also the Rose wine served to my wife was undrinkable, we left and moved to the Cafe Gitane just up the road which was great.

This was a pleasant restaurant to dine at. Good food and pleasant service and reasonably priced. We both had seafood mains which were less than 15 euro each and enjoyed our meals. The white wine could have been a bit more chilled but otherwise it was fine.

It pains me to write a bad review when I am always so upbeat and positive but unfortunately this place deserves the rating I have given it and that is because there isn't a less than 1!!! €33 for two coffees and two bland and tastless cheese crepes. That is all I can say.

Went in thinking it looked like a sweet French cafe. Staff more interested in the horse racing than customers. Ordered Moules Frites. Mussels were gritty and chips greasy. Really awful. Walked out and walked for 30 seconds to Le Volet Qui Penche and had beautiful food and a glass of wine for less than 10Euro.

A very nice moderately-priced lunch restaurant on the main strip in Bayeux. I had the galette du jour, which turned out to be smoked salmon and cheese, and my wife had the seafood lasagna. While this is not an haute cuisine restaurant, both meals were well-prepared and offered solid value. And the husband-and-wife service team who ran the place were... More
