Worried about the summer crowds in Honfleur we made are way to the town early in the morning. Coté Bassin is amongst the first restaurants along Quai Sainte Catherine, with dozens of choices before us we simply took an outdoor seat and took a chance. Our order was simple, an espresso, a caffè Americano, and a couple of croissants. The... More

We were walking along half an hour before the magic 7:00 dinner hour checking out menus to kill time and a nice waitress actually acknowledged our existence and said "hi" rather than ignore us as is so common, As a result we went in and had a great dinner. The location is great on the harbor, the interior nicely done... More

Amongst the many quay side restaurants it's difficult to know which one to go for. We tried this one and it was average. The fixed prix or Menu was average price and portions adequate but didn't spark the yum buds! The wife had Niçoise salad, never had rice before with a Niçoise!

It's a little daunting trying to choose between all of the restaurants in Honfleurs beautiful port. If I were you though, I'd give this a wide berth. It may look reasonable for the Menu Du Jour, but the food is sparse, bland and just plain disappointing. Fish Fillet was riddled with bones and the sauce was tasteless and my wife's... More

We sat on the patio right by the quai, and it was very pleasant. The wait staff was efficient. The crepes were the brown buckwheat variety, not to my taste, but well-prepared. Fun spot on a beautiful day.

Waiter was nice and professional. Crêpes chantilly and coffee were very good. A nice and pleasant little break in Honfleur.

We had tried a few restaurants without success on a busy Saturday lunchtime. We came across Cote Bassin and had a wonderful dish of moules a la creme together with a very refreshing bottle of rose wine. Would definitely go here again. Several people wanted to book for the Saturday evening and they were already fully booked, a good sign.

We had gone to Honfleur for the day & were looking for somewhere for lunch. The first restaurants around the harbour basin all looked fine & very busy but, being in no hurry, we kept on looking. This restaurant was deserted! We intended to carry on but a waiter came rushing out, welcoming us & inviting us in. Giving it... More

Fish soup was rather ok...with pieces of.bread. The filet du lieu was plainly disgusting. Ok, it is cheap cheap but you get what you pay for.

The table was v rocky & fell over depositing a beer on one of the party - the waitress was so unhelpful, would not exchange a wet cushion, would not help turn the table around, did not bring replacement beers until 2nd request- was rude when asked for a new cushion! The Dublin bay prawns are soooo poor, prob frozen,... More
