Waited for 10 mins and got our own menu before staff deigned to acknowledge we we there. Waited 20 mins after starter and went in to ask when our main course might arrive and whether we could have another drink. No apology , just a very huffy waitress. Paid for what we’d had and made a very hasty escape.

Got in, rudely pointed toward a table, weak English (quite common in France), after having asked for food and beverages a (who knows who) strange person comes by saying “7 people 4 eat, to me is difficult”. We were 7 people with two kids and we weren’t explained any “rules” (first time I find out there’s any).
Nice place, in a great spot, managed as a squashing money out of tourists machine.
Not much else to add. Good luck. Still good food.

We stopped here for a coffee after an afternoon exploring charming Honfleur. This cafe has a wonderful location with elevated seats and tables outside. It had superfast service and we drank a small cup of highly flavoured coffee each. With a superb location for people watching and the harbour in the background we enjoyed our visit and all at the very reasonable price of €2 per cup.

Location is perfect, and service was very friendly. We sat outside, and only had beers, but enjoyed the place immensely. Great little pitstop while in Honfleur.

My boyfriend and I went here for a small bite during our only night in Honfleur. There was a live latin band that we could see through the windows and a menu of snacks such as croque monsieur listed outside. Upon entering, the waitress with long blonde hair asked if we wanted to eat and we said yes. She seated us upstairs, we ordered drinks, and when she came for our food order we asked about the snack menu. She said it wasn't available. We said OK and we deliberated. When she came back, we asked to share an entrée and a plat. She said that we would need to order two entrées and two plats because we were two people. We deliberated more. When she came back, I told her that we weren't very hungry, just for a bit of food, hoping that she might recommend something. Instead, she told us it was impossible and told us to leave, motioning downstairs. We picked up our drinks and went downstairs to finish them, where all the other patrons had bread, cheese plates, and snacks, which was exactly what we were looking for. It seems that we should have been seated down there from the start. Rather than giving us a snack menu, she slammed our check on the table and walked away. We tried to remain polite, paid, and left, taking our business to the very friendly crepe place down the harbor.
