We spent two evenings in Honfleur and enjoyed two totally contrasting meals - both superb... This is a lovely, simple restaurant... really caring folks who want you to enjoy the experience... a simple menu of well prepared food... We were glad we had booked... and I suggest you do too... A very well priced meal... and if you don't love it .... well, that would be a shame...

Arrived here after making a reservation online but it wasn't needed as we were the only ones in at the time. Waiter was very pleasant and tried to explain how the menus worked (all on blackboards around the bar).
I think we thought we would be in something more akin to a restaurant but we ended up going for the assiette of cheese and the charcuterie platter to share - both were very nice but we were still starving after we'd finished (so much so that when we returned to the hotel we each ordered a sandwich!).
We ordered a bottle of dry white wine (it arrived covered in a sock so that we had to guess which region it came from - that was fine but it cost €25 which I'm afraid seemed a little steep - it was nice but not worth €25. So €55 later and still starving we felt like we had been robbed a bit which was a shame as it was our first return to Honfleur for five years.

Read a review on trip advisor. Didn't want another dinner with multiple courses. Great funky place with good wine with good French "earthy" food. Galette with potatoes chorizo and onions Delish as well, basque ham and green salad tasty. Cheese plate with basque cheeses met my husbands high standards. Dessert of chocolate crepe and rhubarb galette was great. Highly recommended

We had read the reviews and decided to give it a try. A truly remarkable place with a very friendly and amusing host of this very unpretentious wine bar. We intended just having a pre-dinner drink then going elswhere, but enjoyed it so much stayed and had both the cheese and charcuterie boards (there were four of us!), then went on to have some delicious savoury gallettes. Didn't go out for dinner afterwards! We tried their mystery wine selections - the bottles come covered and you are asked to guess the region/grape variety for a bit of fun. All were excellent. Food and wine all organic. A very relaxed place with a super atmosphere - so glad we didn't venture to the places surrounding the harbour which I'm sure wouldn't have the same intimicy. Quirky but a genuine treat. A real find - when next in Honfleur will definitely return.
Tis is my first ever Trip Advisor review prompted by the excellent experience.

Came across this small wine bar a couple of streets back from the harbour (quite close to Tourist Information). The downstairs is pretty compact - seating for c. 16 - 18 people plus seating upstairs. We only had time for one quick drink - the wine are changed on a regular basis and blind tastings are available together with Charcuterie and cheese boards. By time we left bar was filling up with people eating. If going for more than a drink would recommend booking. The staff were very friendly particularly the one barman who happily spoke in English given our poor French.
