This is a nice quiet dinner spot in Bayeux. Our servers were very attentive and we never felt like they were too busy to help or check on us. The atmosphere is cozy but not at all cramped and the noise level is low. A great couples location. They offered a good variety of food and wine and we were... More

The food was wonderful - we had the fish of the day, and a filet. Both were prepared perfectly. The waiter recommended a French Bordeaux that was moderately priced, yet outstanding. We finished the meal with a cheese selection, and "Elvis' last meal" which was truly delicious and memorable!

We were directed to La Rapiere by our hosts at the L'Augerges hotel we stayed at in Bayeux (also fabulous and highly recommended - ask for Frederick!). We were casually dressed but they made us feel completely comfortable! It has an understated elegance - quiet and serene. We treated ourselves to a very nice bottle of wine -- handsomely presented.... More

We dined here on our first night in France and it definitely set the bar high. I had the rabbit which was beautifully cooked and full of flavour. We were very impressed with the selection of cheeses they had which they brought out on a large trolley. The wine was also fantastic. Overall a very good experience and the staff... More

Absolutely delicious. Scallops were fresh and full of flavour as was the beautiful pumpkin soup. For mains the duck breast and veal were again both outstanding. The veal was the best veal I have ever tasted moist and full of flavour. The service was also outstanding and super friendly and warm. Highly recommended this little gem!

We spent three nights in Bayeux, and ate at three wonderful French restaurants, but the La Rapiere wins out for the most creative dinner. In addition to your appetizers and entrees, they bring you small tasting dishes throughout your meal to allow you to try different things. It was a fun and creative way for us to experience true French... More
