  • Nothing that the House is worth. You want to know and recoonaitre style Normand, traditions, life in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, you have found the right place. For my part I think it's the top of the Normans traditional museums.

  • Excellent food at a good price. We ate lunchtime from the daily menu, the home made fish soup was excellent, as was the rest of the meal. Great location, lovely old building.
  • Excellent food (fish & seafood) and service with a nice view on the harbour!
  • The snails and shrimps as a starter weren't fresh, and the snails were still slimy and lacked seasoning. The mussels were overcooked and a lot of them were bad, they were still closed.. The creme brulee was fine. The service was nice, but that's about it.
  • Great food. Very helpful and friendly service. Nice view.
  • Nice with a good selection of bars and restaurants
