On our way back home we decided to stop in Sainte Mere Eglise to see the museum, have a quick look around the town and have a bite to eat. While looking around the square we came across the 'E Castel' and decided to give it a go - we're so glad we did. The food was great (the home made quiche was excellent), the service quick and the staff friendly and welcoming - would definitely recommend !!

The staff at this restaurant are so funny, warm and welcoming. The food is delicious as well. I was in a party of 6 and we all had something different for lunch and all the food was well presented and very tasty. Given how expensive some of the places to eat around this area are, I thought this meal was very reasonable! Next time I am in Normandy- I will be coming back!

We arrived a little late for lunch- but this was not a problem. Luckily there was still a wide choice of good left and the waitress was very accommodating and fun to chat to.

We visited this restaurant and found the food and atmosphere just amazing. If you want excellent food in a friendly atmosphere this is the place to go. If your lucky you may meet Jean, a valued customer and friend to this cafe. I found this restaurant the best place to eat in all of France.

Excellent home cooked food. Owners Mike and Jan and all the staff are very friendly. Just love their capuccino's and they definitely have the best french fries in town! I live nearby and I'm very happy to have this lovely restaurant within walking distance so I can often enjoy the home made quiche, lasagne, tartiflette and burgers!

The food and service here are amazing! I was traveling with my father who is a 93 year-old WWII veteran and we had just finished seeing the museum and church. Unfortunately, since it was after 2:00 pm, we were told that we wouldn't be able to find any food. We wandered into E Castel where we were welcomed with homemade lasagna and quiche, salad, bread, beer and dessert for a very reasonable price. It was delicious! I'm so glad we found this place at the bottom of the hill from the church - if you're hungry, come see these folks... You won't be disappointed.
