We reserved a table on the advice of previous reviews and dragged ourselves out for dinner after a long day and no sleep - completely and utterly worth it.
The food is reasonably priced - two set menus, the most expensive is 33€. If you want you can drop or add dishes to adjust the cost.
Our waitress was the owner of the restaurant and was a complete treat. The place is small and cosy but not cramped. It's evidently well in demand as many people were turned away.
One thing - do try and speak a little French. They do speak a little English but it's only good manners and worth a chuckle trying to converse as much as possible. Plus - how else will you learn to order your boeuf bleu?

The restaurant was very busy and we managed to get a late sitting on the evening we were in Caen. The staff were friendly, helpful and interested in the food and their clients, being attentive but not too imposing. There are two well-priced set menus and we all ordered differently and everything we ordered was delicious. If I were to visit Caen again I would not hesitate to visit this restaurant.

Although the restaurant was very busy nothing was too much trouble for the Patronne Corinne, and she made us feel special. The meal and the service was excellent and a typically French restaurant experience. It is quite a small restaurant and many people were turned away so it is advisable to reserve a table.

We ate in this restaurant thanks to Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed.We received a very walm welcome and the food was excellent- original, beautifully presented and inexpensive for the quality.It was a weeknight but was full by the time we left- a testament to their cooking. We would definitely return when we are next in Caen.

Great food, great service and a great atmosphere, it must be really good the locals eat here! Advice get here early or book a table, its not the biggest restaurant in town and it always seems to be full. You will be confronted by the biggest menu in Caen, with some one to talk you through it and help you decide what to order, no pushy staff just very helpful. If you only visit one restaurant in Caen make sure it is this one or you could regret it. We had lunch one day and went back for dinner the next.
