It's too late that I regret not taking pictures. I didn't do so just because we were too busy being surprised by the very poor quality of the food and of the service in this 'top quality fish-restaurant'. We should have known from the start. The amuse-bouche was a flat vegetablisch cold soup in small cup that tasted like the... More

We ate at a busy time but although the tables adjoined able street crowded with tour groups, we managed to enjoy a good meal which was reasonably priced for this town.

Reasonably priced gastronomy, well cooked authentic French food, with local seafood, great cheese and good wine. The set menus are excellent and the food is sensitively cooked. Offal features prominently on the menu (as you would expect) so if you're not keen then just check the translation. Service was speedy and efficient but lacked slightly in engagement with the customers,... More

A highly satisfactory restaurant. Good service and excellent food, a pleasant room right in the centre of the village.

Had a very pleasant lunch - took the menu of the day and it turned out a good choice. All well presented and very prompt service. Would go again if we are in Etretat in the future

The servers gave the impression they just couldn't be bothered. We had to ask for water and bread, dirty glasses etc. were left on the table. The food was ok, but also seemed a bit tired. They need to lift their game significantly to justify their prices.

We was in Etretat on February 14. And it was so heavy rainy we just wanted to find good place for eat asap. We had no time to check trip advisor so it was a kind of destiny which brought us there. It was a February 14 menu, so you can choose from it but it was much better than... More

You'd expect top notch sea food looking at the location of this restaurant. The menu keeps things simple. But there's no need to complicate food that is so fresh. I understand people feel it's expensive and touristy. But like so many other places on the world a huge chunk of its income is from tourists. The reason why alcohol is... More

Interesting tastes. The menus are good and good value. Wines are pricey. At first I thought the service was not friendly (you have not reserved, get that table and don't complain) but actually the maitre d'hotel and the waiter were nice, especially the waiter who was really friendly. The place has some interesting carved piece if building. It feels though... More
