We had dinner here with another couple we were traveling with and it was my favorite meal during our stay in France. I had shrimp and lobster and both very fresh and well prepared. The staff were attentive and friendly. I do recommend getting a reservation.

Off season meant this was just about the only open restaurant in the marina. The food however was great and the prices also, we had a lovely meal and were very well treated. The wine selection was also pretty good.

Make reservations for a window table. The food is well priced and delicious. In a weeks time, we ate here twice. Great view of the port activities, the pedestrian traffic and boat traffic. We loved watching the fishing boats parade by. The restaurant is very clean but the service is mixed. All the servers were friendly and only one was... More

Our landlord made a reservation for us at this storefront restaurant on the waterfront in the small town of Port-en-Bessin on the first night of our Normandy trip. I'm glad she did. One of my dining companions shared with me the two-person lobster menu, starting with a delicious bisque and followed by lobster in a cracked shell, which the server... More

Food was consistent and staff were attentive but a bit slow and upstairs the atmosphere was a bit flat.

We had read good reviews of this restaurant's food and decided to give it a try. They were crowded, always a good sign. The wait staff was very busy, understandably. I speak basic French, have been to France many times for vacation and business inspections. I am able to get by in French and have for years. Our waitress was... More

The best restaurant we found in Port En Bessin. In a fishing port one expects plenty of good fresh fish. But I've never found it as good as this before. Rick Stein come here and see how it's done, but without your mark up. The service matches the quality of the food. Pity it was the last night of our... More

Service disappointing with the distinct feeling that we as a family of four were being rushed. The food was extremely mixed, good piece of Salmon but horrendous cut of Sirloin Steak (almost inedible). After leaving the best I could come up with was they need to relax, trying to hard with fancy presentation when they were missing the basics. Potential,... More

My wife is French and we visit regularly but sadly we have had many poor experiences eating there of late. We arrived at 8pm after visiting Arromanches and stunning German gun battery at nearby Les Longues. Port Bessin Huppain is a lovely low key fishing port with plenty of eateries. The Michelin-starred, La Fleur de Sel gave us a simple,... More

We stopped at la Fleur de Sel as the waitress paid attention to us as soon as we entered the restaurant (unlike next door which made us move on). Service was very good, menu was very good (we were after seafood, fish and child friendly menu). We had oysters & John Dory, and moules frites. The portion for the latter... More
