The Cotentin peninsula … A picturesque Normandy region that we love to visit !
Summer or Winter, the area offers beautiful walks along the sea … Imagine pancakes and delicious hot chocolate on cold days … Pancakes and refreshing granita for sunny days 😉

If we love this area, it’s because we love good food and revel in the local specialties.

Today we present two important addresses that we often frequent during our visits to Normandy 😉

La Maison Rouge, a restaurant with panoramic views which serves regional specialties. It has inventive cuisine based on local products of the Cotentin Peninsula … A real treat !

The view offers a breathtaking sight of Anse Brick, ideally situated for guests staying in our camping ground Castels l’Anse du Brick.

This restaurant is 8 km from the city of Cherbourg and is located around the pink granite foothills.

The Head Chef, David Lemée works with passion and respects the most traditional recipes. We recommend this restaurant with our eyes shut ! 🙂


If you are entranced by wonderful views, you’ll love dining in the charming restaurant, Le Panoramique, located 25km from the Castel camping ground..

The place offers a gourmet culinary journey, with a view overlooking the bay of Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue, Barfleur and the many beaches on the horizon. You will once again enjoy delicious gourmet dishes.

Arnaud Feron and Christophe Bourdet run this restaurant with great expertise !  A lovely family story brought restaurateur Arnaud Feron, to take it over in 2009.

It is even more than a restaurant as you have the opportunity to enjoy cooking lessons with the chef and his team ! Foie gras, macaroons, sauces … you can choose various themes … A very special and unique opportunity 🙂

You now know two great places and we hope you enjoy them !

Feel free to share with us any restaurants that you have loved during your holiday 😉
