  • Château de St-Germain-de-Livet

    The château is located a little south of Lisieux, itself about 20km south of Deauville. We found it completely by accident - just exploring "off the beaten track". Its a wee gem!Located in a hamlet ("commune" in French) comprising a church, a couple of houses and the castle, its more of a country house than castle, but a bit more than your average...

  • Calvados Père Magloire

    Cider and Calvados production is a big feature of the Auge area, where Deauville is situated. The Père Magloire visitor attraction is actually in Pont L'Evêque - a few miles inland from Deauville - but as visiting the surrounding area is part of the attraction of Deauville, its going on my Deauville pages.We were there in late October, so all over...

    Remember the movie " A man and a woman"? This is where it all happened some 40 years ago. Still looks the same though.

    Deauville is quite small. During my stay there, I took a walk on the beach every day. It was mid-September, but the tourists were already gone.

  • Touristy, but good!

    The restaurant is part of the Calvados producer's visitor facility. It specialises in local Normandy dishes, with a strong cider/Calvados/apple influence.The decor is very touristy, and staff dress in traditional gear. Bit like a theme park. However the menu is excellent, as was all the food which the 3 of us ordered. I had the veal - see below,...

  • Top class

    Another lucky find!Its on the main road south of Deauville, not far from where the autoroute starts. We would have eaten almost anywhere that evening, and stopped there purely by chance.It is a place which oozes professionalism and quality, without being in the slightest bit flashy or pretentious. Just good surroundings, excellent menu, 1st class...

  • Exceptional

    We found this place purely by chance - what great luck. A fish place, 200m from where the boats land their catch.All 3 of us had the 4 course €25 menu. For me, that comprised 6 oysters, a huge bowl of mussels, cheese and then a yoghourt + fruit type dessert (oh, and a little jug of cidre to wash it down).The others also had mussels, but different...

  • Good food at a very reasonable price!

    The concierge at Royal Barriere recommended this restaurant to me. It is located just a few blocks from the hotel. I had a green salad to start, and Tournedos Rossini to follow. The steak was prepared to perfection. It came with a hearty portion of french fries. Overall, I had a great time in this restaurant!

Deauville-les-Bains Warnings and Dangers

  • hquittner's Profile Photo

    by hquittner Updated Jan 13, 2008

    It was not even in full season and we were hurrying on from Honfleur to Bayeux . We thought we could easily drive by Deauville and glance at it. The press of cars was so great that I was able to get out and take a picture of the yacht basin while my sife inched the car along. Not being contract bridge addicts we did not stop! The basin at this time was not as full as the street but I am sure that this would not be so in summer.

    For me this was a highlight of our visit to the town (in fact the reason for going).The course is completely charming! Very French, very Norman - see pictures. It is immaculate as well.We were lucky to have a sunny late October afternoon, and the crowd was small, so we were able to enjoy being outside and move around freely. I suspect the course is...

    Best value horse racing in Europe, especially in August. There's a meeting every other day with some very big ones attracting all the top jockeys. Best thing about it is that it is very cheap to get in. Only 3 euros (4 euros on staurdays). Also if you go round the tourist offices you'll probably find free entry leaflets. There's also loads for the...
