1, rue des Chatelets, Clecy, 14570, France
Good for: Couples
Kind of a fun find. Here's my journal entry for that day:
"We entered and there was a long table filled with local men and another table with an older French family. We were greeted and seated and chose our meal . . . (see the Favorite Dish section)
It all worked out well. Two other couples came in, one French beside us and one British in the bar area. no one appeared to speak English but the man and wife running the restaurant were very friendly and their black Labrador retriever was wonderful going from table to table to greet everyone and be petted. Everyone bid “au revoir” when they left and it was all very pleasant."
Favorite Dish: . . . truite fumée with toast, duck medallions in a cider gravy with peas and frites, a cheese plate with four very nice cheeses and tergoule (Normandy rice pudding) with a lovely house red wine.
This is definitely a local restaurant, not at all fancy. Madame cooks in the kitchen and Monsieur waits table and befriends the customers. There is a bar and you will get faster service there, but the restaurant full of local workers and townsfolk is a lot more fun. It's probably quieter too.
Everyone was friendly and most curious about the Americans who were eating with them. We had a grand time.Related to:
