Les Jardins de Giverny, 1 rue du Milieu or D 5 du chemin du Roy. Tel 0232216080
On the D 5, on the right side of the road coming from Giverny. Closed Sunday night and Monday as well as in February.
It’s not Claude Monet’s garden but it has charm anyway. No lunch here, reserved for aperitifs. The cuisine is traditional French cuisine in a Louis XVI dining room. You can start by taking an aperitif in the garden and then a Normandy cuisine. Besides, it’s this establishment that was visited by Clemenceau, Aristide Briand and a lot of other “stars” of the beginning of the century. You can still see their horse ring on the wall. Menus for 21 € (except on weekends), 27.50 and 37 €, complete with “trou normand” (sorbet de cidre fouette au calvados) served in the middle of dinner to ease digestion!. Excellent regional specialties and sea products ((notice a few plats served with seaweed). Good initiative: each plat is accompanied by an advice to choose the adequate wine. A very classy and…expensive

We drove to Giverny directly after landing at CDG but were flying from the east coast. The drive was not long or difficult. We waited until early the next morning to visit Monet's house and garden and were there for quite a while before the crowds decended. Our visit was in May. Unless you are usually very groggy after a flight to Europe, your plan sounds quite feasible.
