Overlooking Fécamp's lively harbor, this popular seafood restaurant makes up in conviviality what it lacks in charm. Considering the number of copious seafood plateaux that breeze by, it seems no one pays much attention to style anyway. For sheer volume, the dishes will please even the most insatiable gourmand; factor in variety and freshness (most everything is caught locally) and you've got a winning combo. Gigantic langoustine, plump crabs, and the renowned
Fécamp herring are standouts. Other good choices include the whole grilled sole and the salt cod poached in Normandy cream, a hearty local specialty. The lunch formule (€17.50) is a good bargain.
