“Don't bother”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2010

Vastly over rated. Ok if you like cold fish, if you know good food when you taste it, then this is not for you.
We ordered a 45euro bottle of wine with our meal, when the meal arrived but no wine we called the waiter who said he didn't know why and he would get someone else. This person duly arrived, explained we didn't get our wine because they were out of the one we choose. Nobody had asked us to choose another. He then said because they were out of our choice of wine he would give us one costing double at no extra charge. Although a nice wine, it was not a 90 euro one, as I had seen the price of it on the wine list.

“good for tourists who do not know what is good food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2010

you can find much better seafood in the area: small crab over cooked at 16€, 12 oysters N°3 at 15€ smaller than the N°5 taken on the dock 10 mns before for 8 €
the main dish a "fish" at 23 € from a farmed fish, overcooked with a comon boiled rice.
that's enough: no desert !
83€ euros for being in this place was a waist of time and money..
please foreign people don t go to this place wich doens't represent the french gastronomy at all.

“Great seafood, don't be shy if you don't speak French!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2010

The seafood was fresh and nice, the presentation was well done, the service was a little slow. Unfortunately we are not fluent in the French language although we try.. It was a little difficult/uncomfortable to order but we managed and again, the food was fresh. The location is on the sea, a beautiful view and generous servings.

“Excellent seafood & panoramic view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2010

We always book at the Huitrière when in Etretat and have never been disappointed. Good choice of fresh fish dishes as well as the traditional seafood platters, all with a panoramic sea view from the 1st floor.
