Le Lion d'Or Restaurant Review

: You know you're in Normandy in this restaurant's charming dining room. Patrick Mouilleau is attached to the tradition of the region, but his cooking could use some lightening up. Some good dishes include the rosemary peach tatin with pan-fried foie gras and the olivades and artichoke barigoule with lamb rib. Well-diversified wine list and very warm welcome by the proprietress.
