Fodor's France 2014
Les Nymphéas Review
Chef Alexandre Dessaux, formerly second in command under Patrick Kukurudz (who served Norman haute cuisine to the town's gourmands for almost 30 years), took over as head chef at the end of 2012, thus preserving the menu and traditions of this venerable dining room. At the end of a cobbled courtyard in the city's old town, the stately half-timber building is full of charm, and the elegant dining room pleasantly cozy and hushed. The menu is full of classics with a regional flair, along with the bounty of the sea: freshly made terrine of foie gras, coquilles Saint-Jacques, steamed John Dory with oyster tartare, roasted venison, and wild duck. There are several excellent prix-fixe menus (€42–€74) to choose from for dinner, but the real steal is the weekly lunch menu (€34), which includes mineral water and a glass of wine.
