This place is great... we stayed in the hotel above (Hotel d’Arromanches) during the D-Day festivities...the food was great & the atmosphere was amazing. There were several D-Day veterans staying there, and enjoying themselves, which was great to see.

30 yrs ago whilst on honeymoon in Normandy my wife and I found ourselves in Arromanche.
In those days the Papagall was run by a formidable lady who worked her business with expert charm and passion ,the bar was vibrant and the restaurant full.
We stayed for two nights on that occasion and the food was exceptional even by french standards!
Having returned for a brief visit, it is sad to note that the years have not been kind to the Papagall .
The food is priced at tourist rates however it is less than mediocre in quality.
The room we were given was also quite tired and in need of an update ,no tv signal and poor internet connection.
Overall not a great experience.

Dear Sir,
Yes 30 years after your first visit to Arromanches, things have changed… The Bar does NOT work anymore, because today in France if you have 2 beers and you drive… you get caught by policemen and you loose your drivers license, so our bar works with the restaurant only and we close at 9 pm
Our food priced at tourist rates ???? Salmon with Home made Purée at 14 euros, you find that expensive ??? well you may go around and check every body else's prices and for sure prices 30 years after your visit have a little bit changed
TV signal ? you could have asked us to show you how it works and you are the only person with poor wifi… since all the clients say that it works very well.
you payed 69 euros for a room…. try to find less than that
regards

We ate here twice over a three day stay. The service was very friendly and the food was good and at a fair price.

Luis will go the extra mile to make your meal unforgettable. We had the best dinner here than anywhere else we visited while in France. The view is terrific. This is just a lovely place!

My food was good but several companions thought theirs was lacking. There was a good bit of charm in the decor. They were able to handle our large party.
