Shhh don't tell anyone!
Great news, a terrific new restaurant, La Gambetta has just opened this week about 20 meters from us.
For those of you who know Honfleur, Gwendolyn, (a former server of Homme du Bois; another of our favorites) has just opened a cute little bistrot with menu on the blackboard changing daily. Everything cooked on the grill from fresh fish, clams and steaks. Thierry and I tested this charming place earlier this week and we recommend 'sans hesitation' :) its so new it does not have a website or even a telephone number! We are happy to assist you with bookings upon arrival.
