When we want a quick meal out, this is where we come. Bright and clean. The staff are friendly and fun. The only problem? When filling up the noise is very loud;

Good value for our money. We had different kinds of galettes which we thoroughly enjoyed. Certainly not a kind of 'high-class' restaurant but good food and good service. We'd definitely go there again.

After driving up from the south today, we booked into our hotel and this restaurant was literally next door. It is actually hard to rate, as what they do well is excellent, but somethings are better left alone. Recommend the burgers and desserts. Antipasto is irrelevant and not worth the five euros, simply because it delays your main course! Wine... More

I spent an evening there with friends. It is a nice place full of locals. Perfect for a coffee or a drink. I had a mexican tartare. It was nice but did not challenge my taste buds. It is not so expensive.

La Cantine ? Mexican name, french food ! We were a bit confused with this as we'd expect tacos etc. Food looked good on the menu but their take on some dishes were a bit odd. I guess the place is fairly new so they've got make their mark.

This was one of the few places open on Sunday evening in Chateau Gontier . The place soon filled up and was popular with all ages. Most people including my partner had Gallettes with different fillings plus a nibbles starter.This is undoubtedly not only the most popular food but also the best.My steak was below average.So order the right things....and...

We ate in this restaurant on a Friday evening when it is evidently very popular with local young people and families. We were lucky to arrive early to secure a table. Service was very pleasant and efficient. The menu was extensive and well-priced. My husband chose steak which he said was tender and juicy whilst I had roast cod with... More

We were staying in Chateau Gontier en route to Cherbourg and ate here based on a recommendation from the owner of the hotel. I'm very glad we listened! The menu was varied with plenty to suit all tastes but as we love Galettes, we both opted for the St Jacques Galette cooked in a cream and leek sauce. Delicious! Crispy... More
