All is good here, including the prices. Other dining had pricing and other issues, none here. Try the Sea Snails if available and adventurous. Try everything, including the desserts, wow.

We were pleased to find this restaurant open on the Monday evening before our return to UK. We had the very typical ( but not always easy to find) Normandy experience - first rate food and wine served in a relaxed and unpretentiuos manner in an informal setting at a fair price.

Recommended by our tour guide for lunch during our Normandy beaches tour. Turned out to be an excellent choice. This is the epitome of the French restaurant just off the harbor in a small fishing village town. Table cloths and napkins made it feel almost elegant. Excellent service from the host/waiter. I chose the seafood salad which was on the... More

This restaurant specializes in sea-food and through the use of a limited selections and standardizing all the ad-ons on the plate, they offer very good value for money. The 25 euro menu was certainly a good choise. 14 euro for a caraf of average white wine is slightly overexpensive. Will return and can recommend even though better restaurants are available... More

My daughters and I recently visited Grandcamp-Maisy to retrace my father's landing in Normandie during his service as a Ranger in World War II. After an extremely emotional day we stopped by the laundromat to do a weeks worth of travel laundry. The owner of La Belle Mariniere noticed that the machines were not functioning. He suggested that we have... More

We were a party of 8. The Maitre'd was fantastic. He was attentive and assisted with translations. The foods was beautiful, he had meals to appeal to everyone in our party ( 10 - 65) there were authentic French meals, fresh seafood, chicken and meat. The Maitre'd even made bracelets for the 2 girls in our group. They were very... More

While visiting the area with my husband and daughter, we found this restaurant. We ended up eating there twice, for lunch and for dinner. The owner is really nice and the ambiance is lovely. The food was excellent and it wasn't expensive. I highly recommend.

This restaurant smelled great so we sat down for a real treat. The owner was so kind to carefully explain the menu to us. Since we don't speak French, we appreciated that he wanted to make sure we would like our choices. The decor and service were elegant and the food was beautifully prepared and presented.
