Caen and Bayeux
4 days in Caen and Bayeux, in April. Looking for both fine dining and more casual options, as well as bakeries, cheese shops, etc.
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/...
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.
In addition to La Rapiere, I had a very enjoyable dinner at L'angle St. Laurent in Bayeux last June.
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

Please eat there and report back
