“Pretty City”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

Very pretty city to walk around in. Prices a little expensive though. I stopped here during my cruise and rented a car with my family. We drove to deaville( a thirty minute drive). That was a beautiful city! If you really want to immerse yourself in french culture go there! And for a french town the prices were not as expensive as most cities because there is more locals there. If your at Honfleur you can take the bus to La Harve and take a train to paris (very expensive!).... I dont recommend

“Fabulous setting”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Best if you have reasonable weather - the day we went it was very warm and sunny. Probably not the same if it is pouring with rain!!
The lovely harbour is surrounded by restaurants and cafes all reasonably priced and serving excellent food especially moules and frites. Lovely spot.

Really pretty harbour, lots of atmosphere. Some shops, not many. Nice little pavement cafes for lunch/drink.

“Gorgeous harbour town”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We have been to Honflour before and loved it, and still loved it but found there was a bit of a cartel with the restaurants around the harbour, all meals were the same price.
My husband doesn't eat fish or shell fish so was very limited as there were no Italian or Indian restaurants.

Easy parking and free in the evening.

The cobbles were a bit hard work but the little town is splendid
