We chose this restaurant mainly because of the Tripadvisor reviews, but also because we visited on a Monday evening and in France that means most places are closed. The service was very good but the food was poor in almost every respect. We chose the second most expensive menu which was 27 euros I think. My starter was tempura vegetables... More

Welcomed, food and service was perfect. When we arrive at 19:00 and not boarding the ferry until 22:30 we don't want to be rushed and they don't.

Le Roulis is one of a handful of eating establishments situated just 3 or 4 hundred meters from the ferry terminal at Caen/Ouistreham. Plenty of parking nearby too. We have eaten there 5 or 6 times before catching the overnight ferry to Portsmouth, so I thought a review was somewhat overdue. We have found the food and service to be... More

Having eaten here 2/3 times a year for nearly 20 years, this time we were so disappointed! Madame and the long time waiter were missing and the two staff - a young girl and a smiley chap - were clearly out if their depth. Never before have we had to wait so long to be given menus and then for... More

Like most guests (but not all) we ate before the evening ferry. Didn't book, but it did become quite full. We chose the €22 (3 courses) menu. This was comfortable, unpretentious French dining. Maybe not the finest ingredients (small moules, ox cheek for the bouguignon), but just right when you are tired and ready to relax. Really good value. Some... More

We have eaten frequently here over the past ten or so years and the standard remains good. There are several fixed price menus but one can choose dishes from any of them on an a la carte basis. We had soupe de poisson followed by dover sole on the 27 euro menu and finished with a raspberry tarte. The food... More

We had the Promenade menu 15.50 each and it was lovely. The fish soup starter I had was lovely and lots of choices. Service was good. Would go again

We visit this restaurant on average two or three times a year. This time, little things spoiled things. The service was not the best, we waited quite a long time and had to prompt the waitress. We had an aperitif, as we always do, but we were not given the accompanying toast and pate. However, the next table also had... More

This is our usual restaurant to visit before boarding our ferry. We usually arrive around the 7 to 7.30 time and find we have plenty of time. I have just read other reviews for this year and cannot understand the complaints. Perhaps there is a need for the friendly proprietor to retrain some of the waitresses.?? We have always found...

Recently ate there with a group. Our server, a young, blond girl, was horrible. She never once brought us anything we asked for, even after repeated requests. We asked for water 4 times and finally had to ask another server for it (he brought us 2 pitchers immediately) and we asked for bread 3 times. We finally asked a man... More
