We had a meal here on our way to the car ferry after a very long, wet drive in an open topped car! Our French us "functional" but our sense of adventure is inquisitive. The restaurant us small, maybe 30 covers and when we arrived, early on a Saturday evening it was fully booked from 7.30. The meal was simply... More

Four of us from the USA went here for dinner and Claudine was so incredibly nice and accommodating not knowing English well made us very happy. We loved the food, the ambiance and the whole experience. We highly recommend this place.

Small restaurant in a Caen side street near many other restaurants. Relaxing atmosphere with quiet background music. Serving person pleasant and helpful and adjusted well to our limited french. Food was excellent, Fish main for me and steak for my wife. Lovely combination of flavours. Desserts delicious and obviously put together with great care and thought. Prices seeme very reasonable.
