Very good seafood and meat dishes. The large gambas were fantastic! The staff was very helpful and smiling which made us all very contented diners. Small dining room so reserve ahead.

After visiting this restaurant a year ago we decided to return this year for our New Years Eve. At first glance the 70 euro set menu seemed expensive but by the end of the meal it seemed a bargain. We were given champagne and canopies on arrival with tuna tartar to follow, then a huge fruit de mer, cote du... More

Probably one of the best meals I had lately. It was a spur of the moment kind of decision to go to Le Gambetta but it proved to be a good one. They offer a la cart options, as well as pre-selected menus. We had lamb shank and cod, both were divine. Everything else looked great on other tables. It... More

Sister restaurant of another restaurant we tried the night before. Similar menu, but not as much choice. Nice ambience, good service, good price. We still enjoyed our dinner, but not as much as the others. 3.5 stars

The food, service, atmosphere, and location..ALL perfect. It was hard to decide which restaurant to book in a city packed with great restaurants...we were not disappointed! Priced well...great value for excellent food served beautifully. I highly recommend Le Gambetta..Very cozy restaurant with a warm, crackling fire:)

Not many fancy flourishes here, just the kind of honest cooking I remember from years ago. We ate on the 26 Euro menu the first night and enjoyed home made game terrine, rib-eye steak and dessert, portions are large,carafe wine at 10 Euros the 1/2 litre. Owner / waitress very pleasant. Very nice warm atmosphere with antiques and log fire.... More

Over the course of 10 days in Paris and Normandy, the four of us ate like royalty - Michelin star restaurants, molecular gastronomy, tasting menus, etc. Yet, in the end, this may have been the restaurant we all appreciated the most. Situated in an old, small, cozy space, you feel like you are stepping back in time and having a... More

It has a lovely family feeling and for a Sunday evening was well populated, we both had the Oysters to start and i had the Cote de... More

Wonderfully small restaurant with superb and friendly service in an historic house. Great wine recommendations, and probably one of the best restaurants we visited in Normandy. French helps, but everyone seems to know enough English! I had a great lamb shank.

Cozy ambiance and excellent dinner. You feel as though you are in someone's home. Our Service during the meal could (should) have been more attentive however there was one server for a busy evening. We enjoyed a Delicious dinner and I highly recommend it.
