Delicious food - very friendly owner. The place is run with passion, restaurant is located in a typical house, with a very charming view on the harbour of Honfleur.

A small friendly restaurant near St Catherines church. The menu is on a board and has a relatively small range that will meet most tastes. Everything is prepared in house including the delicious bread and the dishes we had were flavorsome (the veal dish and the smoked salmon with blinis). The owner deserves a prize in multi-tasking - if she... More

We stumbled on this recommended restaurant one rainy Sunday evening at about 6:30. We did not have a reservation (which you should) but Anne Marie was willing to seat our party of 3 since we were early. If you don't speak French it can be a bit intimidating trying to decipher the chalkboard menu and pricing. We were just glad... More

This petite venue is a surprise. The food excellent and prepared to perfection. Service slow and I would book if you want a window seat.

I have to give the owner, chef, and server who did it all by herself all the credit in the world. She was very accommodating and helpful with her menu selections. Fish and veal dinners were well prepared, flavorful and quality. One can see why one might be stressed and come off short tempered while running up and down stairs... More

All the food was fresh and made to order. It is a small place and the wait is long for each course but the food was excellent. Anne Marie makes the most wonderful salads. We could have eaten the salad and dessert and been fine. All portions were large. As we were waiting we had great conversations with the other... More

The ambience of this little resto was just perfect. The owner is a delightful and friendly lady who manages to cook and wait tables in between all the other bits and pieces. The prices are quite inflated, so don't sit down unless you're happy to pay a little more for something special. Or just pop in for tea and a... More

I took my girlfriend over to Honfleur for a romantic weekend. We spotted le Bistro des Artistes and thought it was what we were looking for: small, cosy, intimate. It didn't take us long to realise that was far from reality. The owner of the place was extremely stressed and unhelpful. And I noticed that along the many positive reviews... More

Very disappointing. Long waiting, extremely rude personnel and no visibility over pricing. After arriving, I waited for 20 minutes to be asked what to drink - mind that we're talking of a very small resto and the waitress passed by us over 10 times without even saying hello. When asking for information on the menu, the waitressed seemed extremely bothered,... More
