    It is impossible to classify this establishment.
    It is a symbol, an icon, a memorial and a museum. A tourist attraction of a special kind.
    A place of remembrance that will forever be associated with those brave men who silently glided in their remakably fragile looking craft, across the English channel one midnight in June 1944 .
    They landed behind enemy lines taking the Nazi occupiers by surprise, liberated the Cafe and its occupants;secured the bridgehead and prepared the way for the invasion of the Allied forces.
    The cafe is still run by a member of the same family who owned it then.
    You can buy drinks and snacks, souvenirs and postcards. There used to be a small museum too at the back. We have been there so many times and have always found it a strangely moving experience. We did not go inside on our most recent visit.

    Les trois Planeurs: Ideal refreshment stop at the Bridge.

    I can always remember a cafe on this spot but in October 2009 it seemed to have had a bit of a face lift and extended.
    It is something of a tourist spot simply because of where it is. Big enough to accommodate large tour groups both within the restaurant and on the outside terace as well as independent travelles
    It was a pleasant autumn day but not busy when we sat down outside for a light lunchtime meal.
    We chose to eat outside in October 2009 a large French family arrived and put 3 or 4 tables together to accomodate their numbers. Lots of coaches passed but there weree few other customers.Service was so-so given how quiet it was but our omelettes were fine.
    If this were atransport cafe at home in the UK I would say it was quite good,butdon't stop here in search of fine French cuisine.

    A sudden change in the weather just as we finished our meal caused staff to run out to secure parasols and awning when a strong bitterly cold wind blew down the canal making a dramatic ending to out otherwise enjoyable meal.

    La Glycine: The Food at La Glycine

    Excellent Evening. Great Service. One deserves such a meal at least once every six months!

    Favorite Dish: the menus are at www.la-glycine.com
    here are some pictures

    our dinner cost us 104 euros, with a five course dinner, two glasses of wine, a large bottle of Badoit, two cafes. not bad at all, but of course one could have eaten much cheaper at some of the tourist eateries offering the menu of the day...
    for the quality of the meal the price was definitely worth it.
    Since the waiting staff are all on training and not "waiters", a 5 euro tip at the cashier's for the "young ones" is appreciated

    A local contact had told us about this restaurant, and it was not easy to find but well worth it. From the moment one enters and the course after course, served efficiently and given enough time to gustate, and enjoy and the quality of the food.
    the best french food are found in the provinces and of course in Paris you can find it at twice the price and you have to look for it..

    Favorite Dish: Fish, Langoustine
    the various menus you can choose from can be found at www.la-glycine.com
    we took the 38 euro menu.
    wine can be had by glass 5-8 euros or by bottle.
