each meal of the 8-course dinner, with its associated wine, was perfectly presented, delicate and an explosion of subtle savors.
Staff is extremely attentive, pleasant and simple.

I was impressed by this restaurant from the outstart. The decor is quite nice and the restaurant, albeit slightly more select, is welcoming. There are several set menus at lunch time in addition to a la carte. They were very accommodating for people in our party who had allergies and other dietary requirements. The service was with a smile and very efficient.

The quality of the food and wine was impeccable and the waiters very good at advising. They have a more private area for groups of up to about eight which is nice if you are having a business lunch or just want to be able to sit and chat without being overheard too much.

The restaurant is slightly out of the tourist centre at the place de vieux marche so you won't fall upon it but I'd say its definitely worth the three minutes extra walk from the square. If you're driving there is some parking on the street round about (but not always easy to find) or the car park at the place du vieux marche is 4 minutes walk away.

We were with business partners and had to reschedule a late dinner to an early and short dinner. The flexibility and friendliness with which our difficult and volatile requirements were accommodated are exemplary. But that was only the start – then came the food. Too often one experiences obligatory trendy creativity that results in a pure cacophony of tastes, textures and flavours. Not so at Restaurant Origine; the creativity and originality of the courses were out of the ordinary but most stunning was the perfect harmony of the various flavours on our plate. Some in the group are food tasters by profession but all agreed the ingredients were selected, prepared and matched to perfection. All this for a reasonable price. (One minor, slightly negative, detail is that the concept “vegetarian” is apparently not completely understood – but luckily our vegetarian guest also demonstrated flexibility). No doubt I will come back to this affordable rare pearl.

My husband treated me to this restaurant for my birthday while we were in Rouen and it was a magnificent meal and evening. We chose the five course degustation menu and every course was delicious, the right size, and beautifully presented. The waiting staff were attentive and helpful, and brought out my desert with a candle and chocolate writing on the plate. The decor is chic and tasteful and the restaurant was full with locals even on a Monday night. Always a good sign.

We had an exceptional lunch here whose prix fixe price was only about 30 euros. The same meal in Paris would be much more expensive. The personable and ambitious owner has real creative flair. Though the restaurant in new in the last couple of years, it already a Michelin star -- which seems well deserved. Decor is quite chic and modern. Only quibble is that the hard surfaces make the room a bit noisier than it should be, but this was a minor flaw,
