    We have had some wonderful meals in the past at the RD and were not disappointed this time. Food was very good, though the portions are a bit small for a good appetite . The service was good - staff pleasant and professional .

    We were a group from the UK and the service was extremely friendly. The food was excellent and the setting is very pleasant. Definitely try to sit outside or in the "riverside room" if the weather is nice.

    Great meal - the quality and presentation was perfect. The menu is short and very fresh. All is homemade. Beautiful setting, staff really helpful. Great value for money.

    Beautiful and delicious lunch for all ages. We stopped on our way from Normande to Bourdeux and were so thrilled to find Rive Droite. Every bite was an eye closer and deep inhaling breath moment. Enjoy!!

    My French is pretty bad so it may we’ll be a breakdown in communication but, the evening didn’t start well. On arrival I tried asking for my booking, table for 2. The waiter couldn’t understand me and called over who I assume was the head waiter. He could speak English and said they were fully booked and we needed to leave. I explained I had a booking, he paused for a while then just beckoned me to follow. I was put on edge after that as I didn’t feel welcome. The food however and ambience besides this bad start was so lovely. Nice quiet calm vibe, gorgeous tasty well presented food.

    This restaurant is a pearl in Alençon. We come here once a year to have a dinner with friends. The food is always splendid (yesterday I had a great sea bass tartar and very tasty white fish (I think it was haddock) with a superb garnish. For dessert a great sable with strawberries See you next year
