We had lunch at this Bistro at the waters edge. It was quite crowded, but the food was good and the waitress had no problem with translating to English!

Busy and zinging with people enjoying themselves. Food service excellent in spite of being full with food itself more than acceptable. Maybe not starred cooking but just what was wanted and really good value for money.
Expect it to be busy but it is none the worse for that

One could obviously do worse, but we found La Grenouille to be average. The level of attention and the effectiveness of the service was adequate. With its competition and location, one might expect La Grenouille to provide more distinctive, more tasty dishes. The mussels lacked sufficient liquid and many of the shells [more than usual] were empty; the fish dishes and the salads were ordinary and the pommes frites were a bit below what we have come to expect in France. Given the touristy nature of Honfleur, perhaps we should not have expected better.

We booked a table at window table for seven that evening, we arrived and were shown to our table the service was very efficient the wine arrived and we relaxed awaiting our fruits de mere just be fore the food arrived a coach load of Americans arrived nearly filling the rear of the restaurant they seemed pleasant group our food arrived which we attacked with gusto it was nice but the crab was a little disappointing then the entertainment began one of the Americans told the restaurant the rest of Honfleur that he had seen it all done it all and after a while even the other Americans were ignoring him but I digress. I wish Tripadvisor would had a good category the service was very good the food was good but not very good the atmosphere was good all in all a pleasant evening
