It doesn't get much better than this if you're looking for good "Normandie cuisine", excellent, helpful staff, a wonderful location on the terrace overlooking the river, plus excellent value for money! (also a comfortable restaurant inside for when the evenings become cooler)

Location superb, food excellent and team friendly and helpful. We chose to dine on the terrace overlooking the river. This was a good decision as the river was not over busy. The knuckle of porc was great.(see picture). Also the apple tart which followed the cheese was great. (See picture)

It was a warm balmy evening so we had a table on te terrace overlooking the river. I started with a tartiflette which was delicious followed by a buckle of pork and a plate full... More

We all decided that this was the best meal we had on this French jaunt. Delicious starters followed by Canard for me (duck) and Moulles with an extra special sauce for the others. A very pleasant meal.

Previous to our lunch, we had visited this place for drinks and found the service friendly and efficient. For our lunch, we arrived on a quiet June day. The weather was warm but the area had been recently effected by heavy rain storms and there were few visitors. Our welcome was friendly and efficient and being the first visitors (at... More

Now in our seventies but still intrepid travellers, we have visited Clecy regularly over the last 30 years, sometimes staying at the dear old Moulin but seldom straying round the corner to Au Fil de L'Eau, other than to buy an ice cream or a beer on a summer's day. Today we had a couple of hours to lose en... More

A beautiful location and lovely establishment. The breakfast was delicious. Our only disappointment was a late check in, 5.30 and though very friendly no one spoke one word of English and our French was not completely understood.

We just love this restaurant come rain or shine it is a simple and romantic place to dine! Not gourmet but just simple french food which is well priced and in the most beautiful setting. The staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Every time we are in the Swiss Normande we make a point of eating here... More
