Visited several times in the last few months and the service is always friendly. The food is consistently good. Not masterchef quality but very pleasant to eat. Not a restaurant for snobs. This is a place for people who enjoy a normal relaxing atmosphere to...More

Right in the heart of Coutances, opposite the cathedral. Lunch time food is varied and affordable. In addition to the cathedral, do visit the botanical gardens just around the corner.

This place has changed hands but not quality. It is packed out with business people at lunchtime, but lacks the atmosphere for an evening dinner. There is an extensive carte, but several fixed-price menus too. We have never had a bad luch here.
