We enjoyed Port en Bessin very much. So handy for the beaches. We were there during the annual Blessing of the Boats. A wonderful experience. However, went to this place for lunch that weekend and were told that the menu was only oysters or mackerel....More

Port de Bessin has two quays. One with restaurants and one without. The one without sunshine has the restsurants. Pays de Bessin is the one with the most sunshine being an old ship floating along the quai. We older experimenting couple decided in the end...More

If you like fresh seafood - then dont miss out on the platter. Lobster, crab, shrimps and other delicious seafoods served with a great dijon mayo. Tough there could have been some mor langustine and shrimps instead of small shrimps and mussels.

We went there with my girlfriend for my birthday and we were not disappointed. Great seafood plates with delicious oysters and lobster. The restaurant is a nice little boat, which brings some authenticity to the moment. The owner and her daughter were super nice and...More
