This restaurant served one of the best meals in my month long trip of France. Mid Range prices for exceptional fresh cooked French specialty dishes makes this a must visit restaurant. Reservation are probably smart to have except in the off seasons. Service is superb and even though language may present a problem for visitors the staff tries their best... More

It's small and nothing fancy but it's the food and service that you will go for. The chef/owner and the staff made our dining experience one we won't forget. Our table was next to the window looking into the kitchen and we were able to watch the kitchen staff work like an orchestra. To top it off when my wife... More

A little expensive but good service and food, it could be a little more economical than the 300% mark up they are making.

Cabourg is full of tourist restaurants so we wanted to try something a little more authentic. Well this restaurant has a lot going for it. A sea front location about a ten-minute walk from the Casino. We dined on a Friday night and the restaurant was packed. The diners were mainly locals and the majority of tables had been reserved....

You have to book 2 days in advance to get a table, the place is well known and crowded! The seafood is delicious and fresh. The staff is nice and focused on an efficient service.

It was the hottest day of the year so far. Internally, the airco was working. The restaurant was complete and quite crowded with mostly French people (always a good sign). Acoustic is very poor inside. The choices on the card aremostly limited to fish dishes. The portions are certainly big enough. They also have a number of specialties. For desert,... More

The next day we tried there special for two of cooked seafood: full lobster, langoustines, gambas, calmar, octopus, and Mussels on a bed of black (ink) spaghetti. I rate it five star... More

We had to reserve a table after spontaneous visit in the evening where all tables were full. When we ate there we understood why. The food was awesome. Catches of the day are presented and you can pick your fish. It is excellently prepared in the open kitchen. The St Pierre fish was perfect. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed.... More

Extremely busy on a Tuesday evening with locals - always a good sign! Service a wee bit slow but no great issue. Food excellent with some great choices available and really lovely flavours.
