  • Regional products

  • Stunning view of the sea

  • In the heart of Cabourg

Welcome to our gourmet restaurant located in the heart of Cabourg with a stunning view overlooking the sea. You will delight at the gustatory journey you will embark on surrounded by the elegant and inspiring decor of Le Balbec.

There is no time to lose. Come to Le Balbec and experience something extraordinary.
You will discover it first on your plate, with a delicate and refined cuisine that manages to be gourmet, traditional and modern all at the same time: prepare to be whisked away by this daring culinary feat.
Here, we only use fresh ingredients, and seafood is put front and centre. Among the main dishes on our menu, you will find salt-crusted turbot with lemon confit butter, truffle purée and seasonal vegetables. Perhaps you will even follow in the footsteps of the Grand Hotel's illustrious guest Proust and sample the sole meunière...
An extraordinary view will unroll before you as far as the eye can see with a peaceful yet stunning view of the sea. What better setting could you ask for to enjoy your lunch or dinner?
And the gustatory journey continues, this time at the bar with its menu. While perusing our selection of wines and spirits, perhaps your taste for reverie will draw you to our signature cocktail. Its name is The Swan, another homage to Marcel Proust. It is quite a story...

    (Translated by Google) A perfect meal. From starter to dessert, the products are prepared with taste and a search for originality. We had a great time. The service is impeccable.
    I think the only point of divergence may be the decoration. If you are looking for an "old-fashioned" place, to immerse yourself in an interior decor from the beginning of the 20th century, this will not be the case. But personally it didn't bother me.

    Un repas parfait. De l'entrée au dessert, les produits sont travaillés avec goût et une recherche d'originalité. Nous avons passé un très beau moment. Le service est impeccable.
    Je pense que le seul point de divergence peut être la décoration. Si vous cherchez un lieu "à l'ancienne", à vous plonger dans un décor intérieur du début du XXème, ce ne sera pas le cas. Mais personnellement cela ne m'a pas dérangé.

    (Translated by Google) A luxury hotel haunted by a Marcel Proust with a sensitive genius who would turn in his grave seeing the general poverty of taste that inhabits the place today! A menu with tempting and modern titles which is only disappointment after disappointment!!! Dishes that don’t even arrive hot… so lukewarm or cold literally and figuratively! An extremely expensive wine list compared to what is served in the glass! We pitied the poor waiters who unfortunately couldn't do anything about it but who receive customer reviews! Above all, avoid this “All Accord” channel!

    Un hôtel de luxe hanté par un Marcel Proust au génie sensible et qui se retournerait dans sa tombe en voyant la pauvreté de générale goût qui habite les lieux aujourd’hui ! Un menu aux intitulés alléchants et modernes qui n’est que déception après déception !!! Des plats qui n’arrivent même pas chauds… donc tièdes ou froids au sens propres comme au sens figuré ! Une carte des vins extrêmement chère par rapport à ce qui est servi dans le verre ! Nous avons plaint les pauvres serveurs qui n’y pouvaient malheureusement rien mais qui reçoivent les avis des clients ! Surtout fuyez cette chaîne « All Accord » !
