On our trip down the Seine from Paris to the Normandy Beaches, we spoiled ourselves with a terrific evening out with 2 other couples at this small, typical "Normandie" cuisine restaurant in the heart of Rouen.

As the 6 of us speak no French, our handy app came in handy when viewing the menu, (totally French) although the server was immensely helpful despite speaking no English. We were met with a friendly, patient young woman who seemed to enjoy the process as much as we did. I recommend the trout almandine as well as the escargot.

A truly lovely evening in a clean, quaint, picturesque restaurant with indoor or outdoor seating. Highly recommend getting a reservation as it is very popular with the locals as well.

I was looking for the best restaurant in Rouen when I saw La Petite Aubergine's review. We first tried to go there for lunch, but it was closed. Next day we decided to check the place again. It was 19.30 and the restaurant was just opening. We were extremely lucky to get in, since the whole restaurant was already booked full! The food was wonderful. Three course dinner with cheese did cost a bit over 22 euros. I was eating escargots (traditional), mixed fish plate (really fresh fish with few mussels and vegetables), cheese and creme brulee. I also recommend to try the cider. I was looking what other people were eating and everything was looking so delicious! The only negative thing was that there was so much food that I felt like bursting after the dinner!
I really recommend this cute restaurant. Remember to book your dinner reservation before going! The place is REALLY popular!

When selecting a restaurant in downtown Rouen one needs to try to avoid the restaurants for tourists. This is well located . Not far away from the Cathedral but not exactly in the tourist area, which is good. Tables are small, very closed to each other, however patrons are not noisy. Service is good (by the time we arrived, by 7:30 pm) there was only one lady taking care of oll customers, however, within approximately 30 minutes anpther two young ladies arrived to help her. Menu is good, with three options of 3-step offers, starting at 18 euros. We chosed this one at it was fine. Terrine and trout were well prepared. Desert choice was creme caramel which was very good. Will return.

Had a great meal here with four friends, lovely people, we were so well looked after, sad we didn't get the chance to go back, we were only in France 3 days and they close Sundays. Would certainly go again without doubt.
