Four of us had three course dinners, each trying a different menu. Every course was well and artfully served and delicious. Staff help us pick a fine wine.

Honfleur is sadly overrun with tourists. As a result there has been a proliferation of eateries which is not all to the good with the old harbour area a mass of moules frites pizza and crepes establishments. But around the side streets are some good more traditional restaurants. We always check out the current menus in several and la lieutenance... More

The restaurant is located near the cathedral. The menu is typical of the area. The outdoor seating is nice and good for people watching. My local fish was grilled well.

We were three for dinner. Every plate was very good, and even the crafe of wine was just te perfect amount to complement our dinner. It was slow, but it just made us enjoy every bite even more.

Two vegetarian options, both very good. Champagne with Apple brandy and Grand Marnier was delicious.

Can I just start by saying, I don't give bad reviews, but I felt this was a must!. I would advise anyone to avoid this restaurant unless you are French, we were ignored for an hour, then the food was not even that good and very overpriced!

Lovely evening with beautifully presented and prepared meals and fantastic service. Great if you love fish, but they also offer lovely steaks and vegetarian meals. A large choice of meals in the a la carte menu and also some fixed price menus. The owner was very attentive and friendly and his team were all professional and take care you offer... More

We ate here on out last night in Hornfleur. My wife is vegetarian but I love seafood. This can make things difficult eating so close to the sea ! Not here - they have a gazpacho starter and Noodle main which my wife loved. For my part I had the crab cocktail followed by a lovely sea bream fillet. Overall... More

Honflur has no shortage of choice as far as restaurants, but we were drawn to this one because of the location. In a beautiful square, next to the fishermen church, it was much calmer than the waterfront. Really enjoyed an excellent meal which was reasonably priced and beautifully presented.

Restaurant La Lieutenance is always our first port of all in Honfleur. The owner and his wife feel like old friends we've been there so often. The food, the staff, the service are all superb. Some may regard it as unfortunate, but I love the old clock in the bell tower in the Square, chiming the quarters and repeating the... More
