You will not be disappointed here. Found by chance, it is truly a really good place with good selection especially fish dishes. Very pleased, would visit again. Such good value, too.

A very nice restaurant in the centre of town. Our Labrador was made welcome. Comfortable dining room and welcoming service. Menu was good with a la carte and fixed price set menu selections. Not cheap but well presented food and very tasty. The Foie Gras was superb. Wine expensive with ordinary rose de provence starting at 25 euros! More dining areas upstairs with an outdoor terrace on 1st floor. Meal for 2 with wine just over 100 euros. Set menus start at 25 eu. Will probably go back again.

An excellent meal in a delightful room. The waiter could have been a little more friendly and the wine was pricey, but otherwise no complaints. Service was efficient and the food interesting and very will prepared.

La Vielle Gabelle was recommended. By my daughter who now lives in Evreux, so we ate there the first night of my visit. The restaurant is in a beautiful old home, with eating rooms on 3 different levels. The restaurant is located very near city center, and the restaurant is very beautiful and very Norman in its construction, very old, but beautifully maintained.

The menu has much to choose from. We had a bottle of Cotes De Blaye for 22 euro. Glasses of wine start at about 5 euro. You can order from several levels on the fixed price menu, we chose from the 23.5 euro ( the lowest, ranging up to 39 euro). This includes an appetizer, entre and dessert. Even on the 23.5 euro menu there were many options to choose from in each category, I chose the carpaccio, with grated parmasean cheese and arugula for appetizer, which was fabulous, steak au poviore for the entre and had strawberry with cream and grand mariner for dessert. The steak was equivalent to a good ribeye, with a very peppered au poviore, but it was on the side to add to your own liking. The steak included a very good potato dish, and several vegetables, including asparagus, green beans, broccoli and a mushroom pate. The breads were awesome. All was delicious.

You can also choose from the ala carte menu as well.

Three of us (my daughter and her boyfriend) were there for 2.5 hours. This is true French dining, so don't plan to be rushed, nor expect it. The table is yours essentially for the night. Great, quintessential French ambience and service. Reservation required. We ate on ground level street front. There are several options. Ask about them and choose what sounds best to you. I was very pleased with our table.

The total for 3 of us, on May 4, 2013, all eating from the 23.5 fixed price menu, including a good bottle of wine and as much as you need to eat was 96 euros. Gratituity included. overall a strong 4.5. I have no comparison base yet, but well worth it.

This is now a great place to go. La Vieille Gabelle used to be very old fashioned. There has been a lot of improvements in the decoration and the menu. It is now one of the best in Evreux and still reasonnably priced (food and wines)
