Recommended to us, we sought out this restaurant and I can understand some of the views here but would defend the food and service, at least on our visit. If you are looking for an expensive, dress-up dinner with fine wines, personal attention and silver service, go to one of the other, far more expensive, restaurants in Honfleur. If you want a laid-back meal where you're left to eat, drink and talk without constant interruption, try le chat qui peche. We had lunch here and ordered way too much food - moules marineres each (huge portions), seafood choucroute and fricassee of saint jacques, coffee and a calvados. A bottle of petit Chablis and Badoit - €96. When we arrived there was a Japanese coach party in the restaurant but we managed to find a table still, and I'm glad we did. Although the waiters were extremely busy, because we spoke with them they were light-hearted and chatty. After the first coach party came another, this time American, and there was no attempt to get us out to make space - we spent a relaxed couple of hours having lunch with our table guest (a goldfish in a bowl-original!) and the food was excellent and the portions huge. It may be that some of the other reviewers were expecting top-end cuisine instead of honest traditional food or more personal attention-in the case don't come here-go to Absinthe around the corner.
