This is the place to go to enjoy good wine, reasonably priced and with local fare served with it. One bottle we ordered was slightly off, it was removed and replaced with no fuss at all. The prices are written on the bottles, the markup is extraordinarily modest, particulary for the better wines. And the food is perfectly ok. A very nice long evening at a very reasonable cost.

This was the unexpected surprise during our stay. Pierre-Henri is the best. The food was great and the wine better. A must try when there; make reservations and order early or you might miss the fresh fare for the day.

We visited this restaurant in June and it was a memorable experience. I had researched some restaurants in Bayeux and jotted little notes about them in case we found the time to seek them out after a busy day. After a little mis-direction we found the little place and the gentlemen inside said he wasn't open for 15 min or so. We stood there deciding whether to keep walking and he popped right back out and said "the chef is ready, so come on in". Our party of 6 had a nice big table and he (owner) explained that it would be a fixed menu with wine and asked if that was ok. Yes! It was a nice relaxed atmosphere and we enjoyed speaking with the waitress and host. The food and wine pairings were wonderful and the evening was a special treat for our family.

Happened upon this place in looking for restaurants in Bayeux- Henri Pierre was a wonderful host with a extensive knowledge of wine - the dinner was a pris fixe with one selection only- it was very good and service couldn't have been better in a Michelin 3 star- a most enjoyable evening- we almost went back the next night!

Our host was wonderful as was our fixed price dinner in this small restaurant tucked along the canal near the tourist information centre. Our host was very helpful in suggesting wine to go with our meal and very reasonably priced!
