Recommended by a local calvados producer this Auberge in a tiny village was outstanding. Everything is homemade and delicious. The owner is very friendly and the clientele local. Definitely worth seeking out. The cabbaloitte made with local Camembert cheee and tart cherries was outstanding!

We were very disappointed about this restaurant, so famous about their charming garden.
Food, heavy Normandy dishes, is good but prices are Parisian. The owner cares only about his usual guests and is rude with new ones..
When we booked the table on the phone, we asked him for a table in the garden in a place where we wouldn't bother anyone (as we were with a baby in a stroller). When we came, it appeared that the garden was closed and we had very little space. The owner(who is serving food) was voluntary poking the stroller when passing and making remarks that we should fold the stroller as other people would come soon which never happened.. We felt unwelcomed and we waited around 40 minutes for dishes. The menu was only in French with only one vegetarian dish. Even though the place is very original genuine Normandy "Auberge", I'd never go back there again. Anyway, the owner seems not to bother about having any new clients so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!

Very nice view. Friendly staff and good local food!
We wanted to have a light lunch but most dishes were too heavy as the waiter told us, so he suggested to take both a starter and share, which was enough and really tasty!

Afterwards he helped us to found a distillery in the neighbourhood.

The restaurant is really cosy and intimate with a nice fire place . You really feel in the country and on a relaxing weekend when you go there . Great service, especially the son . Food was very 'french' but delicious - hot camembert, cider etc . Greatly recommanded.

An excellent, friendly restaurant, tucked away in a beautiful little hamlet. The cuisine is very specialised, focussing on regional specialities. The father/son partnership worked so well and we were made to feel most welcome. The restaurant is small and the atmosphere very cosy - so book to ensure a table. We had a lovely evening and had a most enjoyable 'chat' (his English/our French) with the photographer father who gave us a very proud guided tour of his enchanted garden. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
