Three of us visited this restaurant between Christmas and the New Year.
First impressions were very good. The Maitre d' (or owner) arranged a good table and made us feel welcome. We didn't see him again however though he was about.
The amuse bouche was excellent, very tasty. The wine list though not extensive, had some interesting wines which were well served. The entrees we also very good.
However after that, things went steadily downhill. Both the veal and the steaks were tough and the steaks were not cooked as requested.
Though the restaurant wasn't busy, the two staff were less and less visible, preferring to chat in the kitchen service area. The cheese was ok and the deserts were also good.
Would we go back; probably not. Maybe the restaurant had an off day after a busy Christmas?

Having left another (man of the forest) restaurant round the corner due to appalling attitude, we could not have found a finer place. Super staff, welcomed warmly, great service, delicious food at reasonable prices. It was a treat, highly recommended and right opposite Église Sainte-Catherine

Restaurant la Lieutenance was recommended by the Hotel l'Ecrin. It is in the heart of the old part of Honfleur. The restaurant has an excellent selection of local dishes. We were fortunate that the weather allowed us to sit outside and to enjoy the view of the wood church.

Our second visit to this restaurant was a pleasurable experience.
Fantastic set lunch at €26 included 6 choices of entree and main course. Excellent salmon starter and fish soup and mains of cod fish and steak were perfect. Good wine list and wine by the glass as well as half bottles. Classy ambience but not too formal. Nice cutlery and tableware, linen etc.
Very nice staff and some English spoken.
This restaurant is not listed in the Michelin Guide for Honfleur (which has many gastronomic restaurants) but should be in my opinion....this is better than many here and maintains good gastronomic standards with superb local ingredients.

At the end of a review Trip Advisor usually asks about the availability of Wi-Fi; there should be a spot where you indicate that dining in a restaurant such as this the last thing you should be worrying about is Wi-Fi. Put the phone away and revel in the delicious food, elegantly presented. Marvel at the way flavors are induced by the talented chef(s). Great care is used in the presentation--art on a plate Just sit back and delight in a memorable dining experience. And leave the IPhone in the handbag. OK, this time TA did NOT ask about the Wi-Fi, but I had to get this off my chest--it's an inappropriate question for finer dining establishments.
