  • 6

4 days in Caen and Bayeux, in April. Looking for both fine dining and more casual options, as well as bakeries, cheese shops, etc.

  1. Hi Scrabble;
    We were over in Normandy a few months ago with two ado grandkids and had fabulous meals as well as visits to the tapestries (fun to find one's ancestors still there - and Churchill's and Hugh Iorys Hughes' Mulberries, and
    the American Cemetery which we had to tear the girls away from).
    You can find a recounting at my blog - the first day of which was http://johntalbottsparis.typepad.com/...

    1. Pâtisserie and salon de thé in Bayeux, in the centre of town, "La Reine Mathilde" at 47 rue Saint Martin. Here you will find a superb "la tarte aux pommes normande", a specialty of the region.

      1. It's been 4 years, but Le Pommier in Bayeux was very good

        1. In addition to La Rapiere, I had a very enjoyable dinner at L'angle St. Laurent in Bayeux last June.

          1. While rummaging through my travel material I came across a card for a restaurant in Bayeux named "l'Amaryllis". I has been years since we were there and we ate there twice. It had very good food.

            I searched it and found that it is still there and still gets good reviews in the travel books.

            It is: l'Amaryllis
            32 rue St. Patarice

            Tel: 31 22 47 94

            Please eat there and report back

            1. When in Caen to see William's castle and the two cathedrals, try http://www.bouchonduvaugueux.com; small, informal, very nice.
