Looking for lunch, we (three adults and two young children) arrived without a reservation. The restaurant was very busy but after a minute or so they found us a table. The food was really good, very fresh and plenty of it. The deserts were a fantastic end to the meal (the macaron was sublime). Service was excellent and when the bill arrived I was very pleasantly surprised. Five happy customers. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restuarant.

This was a genuinely enjoyable experience.The restaurant was located next to the marina in the centre of Caen. The restaurant staff were very friendly. Our main course of whole baked cod on a bed of vegetables for 2 persons was outstanding. It was definitely more basque than french and was a nice change from the slightly pretentious nature of some restaurants in Caen. Having said that, Caen had a good range of restaurants and we enjoyed all our meals there. We found overall the wine expensive but the food had good local/Norman influences.We would go back to Caen tomorrow and definitely go back to the Bistrot Basque.

What a little gem of a place for Caen. The whole evening turned into a complete surprise. Excellent food, excellent service. As Spanish as you could get without being in Bilbao. And a great little Irish bar just up the road.

Having wandered around Caen we found very few places open, we got to this restaurant which was a hive of activity. The food, wine and service was excellent, a 'must go to' if you are in Caen.

Excellent service, perfect meal, good surroundings and helpful friendly staff. What more could you want? We were lucky and managed to get a table for 2 without a reservation, but seeing how the place filled up, mostly with locals, in a very short space of time then reservations recommended. Even customers at nearby tables helped with recommendations. A really good evening and a first class meal.
