Restaurants in Bayeux

Will be spending three nights in Bayeux in May and wondering if anyone has any suggestions for restaurants. Not looking for anything fancy just good food at a reasonable price.

I had a wonderful dinner at La Rapiere on rue St. Jean about a year ago. I would highly recommend it.

We enjoyed dinner at Le Petit Normand at 35 Rue Larcher. We stayed at the Reine Mathilde just down the street and were surprised at how good the Brasserie there was for lunch.

Lew,

Welcome,

I at at one near in the TI area. I just happen to try it since it was one of the few that was open for dinner at 1830 when I eat. I dont remember the name tho. It just so happens that it was also in Rick book.

happy trails.

Thanks for the responses. Is is necessary to reservations at the restaurants or can we just find one we like and walk in. We will be in Bayeux May 13-15.

Ditto the recommendations of La Rapiere and Le Petit Normande. The two best places we ate! You will need reservations for La Rapiere. We walked into Le Petit Normande and were lucky to get a table - it was busy!

I second Le Petit Normand and Reine Mathilde, to which I'd add Le Fringale (on rue St. Jean) and the Lion d'Or.

Lew,

While it may not totally fit your criteria, I really enjoyed Le Pommier in Bayeux. You can have a look at their menus using the website link. I thought the food was excellent!

Bon Appétit!

La Rapier! Wonderful food and an affordable menu option for lunch with no reservations. Not sure about prices/reservations at dinner.

Liked both Le Petit Normande and the Drakar. Mussels were outstanding at Drakar, which is a little less expensive than than Le Petit. Both places were recommended by our B&B. We had wonderful take away ham and gruyere baguettes from a boulangerie on one of the main streets.

L'Assiette Normand is another good one. Make sure to try the Calavdos ( there was a tasting room on the main street going up the hill - I think Rue St. Jean) as well as the hard cider. Le Petite Normand used to have a special apple dessert that you had to order at the beginning of your meal - it was fabulous. We never made reservations, but if you wanted to eat in a particular restaurant it's a good idea. You probably already know that they don't intend to rush you through your meal, so tables don't turn over the way they do in the States. Oh, and they don't eat early in this town. Eating at 7 p.m. Was late for us and we were usually the first ones in the restaurant.

Don't mean to overstay my welcome but when is the best breakfast in Bayeux. I'm staying at the Churchill and the full breakfast there is 13 euros. Thanks

The French don't eat a big breakfast. If you really want to save money, buy some yogurt and croissants and eat in your room.

We were in Bayeux in September and found only one bakery with seating space -very small and crowded. After that we decided we were better off paying what seems like a high price for breakfast at the B&B and getting on with our day. We also found throughout France during a month of travel that the B&Bsand hotels all had policies against eating in the room - even drinking a glass of wine. So go with the crowd, and enjoy the breakfast from with your fellow residents!
