“Good Food but the Service ahh the "Service" !!!”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

On our way to Mont St Michel , we arrived on a hot Sunny day at 1.30 pm we asked for a table outside for 7 but apparently it was not possible even if there were only 2 tables occupied outside , we were seated inside on a long wood table with benches the restaurant in itself looks cute but most of the tables were not reset ! We waited 15 min to have the menus handed rudely by the waitress who was struggling with 3 tables inside.We ordered tartines and Salads which were all very tasty but when i asked for a portion of fries the "chef " (who was wondering around ) rudely replied " it's not going to be possible the kitchen is close " we were shocked that a restaurant closed their kitchen at 2.15 pm during the busy summer period ! After all we were at the Tour de France week ...
After the 3 rd time we asked for the bill which i have to say was the most confusing bill i had ever seen (the dishes we had were not written just random prices with some extra prices written at the end) we were confused the waitress explained to us very briefly adding "is it all clear for you " ?? !
It was a shame cause the food is quite good but due to the catastrophic service we left with a bitter taste .

“Tasty lunch”
Reviewed 18 July 2012

We had a pleasant Tuesday lunch here. I had the fish soup and we shared a plate of fish tartines. It was all very wholesome and down to earth. There seems to be two kinds of fish soup: cheap fish soup, which isn't worth eating, and good fish soup that tastes like the sea and my fish soup tasted like the latter (good). The tartines came with sardine, salmon, mackerel and tuna pastes and were also of the good variety. We had a carafe of a nice St Emillion and well-made coffees at the end. Staff were friendly and prompt. The bill came to under EU 30, which was good value for a quick lunch. We'd go back.

“A Very Cute Restaurant with Good Food and Service”
Reviewed 17 November 2010

We visited this restaurant on the way to Mont Saint-Michel. We arrived around 11.40. They were not serving lunch yet, but one of the employees allowed us to sit and asked if we wanted tea or coffee. She then returned around 11.50 and took our lunch order even though they begin serving lunch at 12. We had the fish soup and cheese fondue. Both dishes were good and reasonably priced.

The restaurant is small but very cute. It looks like a country store with boxes of caramels and cookies available for purchase. We bought a souvenir box with cookies that we ate when we returned home. The cookies were good as well.

Tartines et Decouvertes was a great lunch spot.
