Our family group of 8 (foodie) adults have just spent a weekend in Normandy mainly to do some serious eating and rolled up without a reservation at 1.30 pm on a warm and fairly busy Sunday in late September, having left our cars in the large free car park on the harbour wall. Downstairs was fairly full but we were shown to a table upstairs where only one other table was already taken. Smiling, helpful and energetic service, despite our clumsy French. Extensive menu so something for everyone, mainly classic French, lots of fish and seafood but meat dishes too including chicken in cider (very tender and flavoursome) and rabbit with mustard and cream. Delightful amuse-bouche which we think was cream cheese blended with sun-dried tomato and basil. Some of the family started with a big dish of brown shrimp and went on to the plateau de fruits de mer (more shrimp, prawns, langoustines, crab, oysters, winkles and whelks). I had snails then skate wing with butter and capers. Another had a marvellous plate of flaked white fish with cumin. Frites served separately in paper cones on stands to keep them out of the sauces. All good, with a couple of bottles of a nice white Sancerre (for those not drinking cider) and lovely desserts to follow, Fabulous mousse au chocolat. It was all just very, very French, and overall the best meal we had all weekend, at a very fair price.
