Well you can only speak as you find! We have just had a lovely evening at Le Bistronome in Caen. Fabulous service, beautiful food, lovely atmosphere. We are in Caen for the next 4 nights...I think we may come back here!

We were staying at the Mercure which is just across the road from this restaurant. Lovely food at a good price in pleasant surroundings. Open on Sundays too. Good selection of beers.
