This restaurant is close to "restaurant row" (one block over) and can be overlooked. The atmosphere is basic, but the food is very good. If you can not get reservations to the Peiti B - go here. The style of food is very similar but at a lower price.

We are a young British couple and we loved the French cuisine served in this restaurant. The staff is very friendly and the chef is obviously and amazing cook! The foie gras was delicious and probably the best foie gras I have tasted in France. We hugely recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a good meal. Bravo... More

This was prob the... More

I'm really glad I took my friends to this place as I wanted them to experience good local cuisine. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the location is great, in an old neighborhood called Vaugueux right next to the castle. I loved the menu, a lot of choice for each course. Each dish is quite original with local influences.... More

We made a trip into Caen from our ferry port that evening looking for more choice to eat than our hotel offered - to find loads of choice in Caen. We ended taking pot luck at L'Embroche, had no idea what to expect and left very satisfied. Having arrived early doors, there was plenty of choice of table. (Later on... More

The restaurant is located in a nice area, the service is good but unfortunately I was quite disapointed by why I ate in spite of the numerous guides recommendations hung in front of the door.

I had dinner at L'Embroche during a conference in Caen. Our hosts brought us as a group, and we enjoyed the atmosphere and location. It was quite busy when we were there, so we wound up on the patio, but that wasn't really a problem. The menu offered a nice range of local and traditional dishes, and everyone in our... More
