It’s crazy how time flies. I feel that our weekend in Deauville was a week ago and yet it’s already been 20 days since we returned with Albane. This getaway was really short but we still enjoyed walking in the seaside open air, doing lots of pictures and discovering cool addresses that I would like to share with you. Deauville City Guide, let’s start !
Where to sleep :
Hotel Ibis Styles de Deauville Centre : This is the hotel where we stayed and as I explained in this previous post, everything was perfect! Both the room, the breakfast, the location of the hotel in the center of the city and the value for money.
Where to eat :
Note that in Deauville the restaurants mainly offer fish and that in Trouville it is mostly seafood.
Le Bougnat : After trying all Deauville restaurants (it was the day of horses auctions and all the restaurants were full), we fortunately found this restaurant near the Market where they had a last table at the second service just for us. At first, the restaurant looks small when come in but it turns out there is a large room upstairs. The decor of the restaurant is very original. There are plenty of objects hanging on the walls, on the ceiling. The tables are close to one another but the atmosphere is very joyfull and convivial and in addition we eat very well. By the way, I recommend the fish soup which is excellent
La Cantine : Nice brasserie with an industrial decor. We were there Sunday for lunchtime. It was very nice but I think it’s nicer to go in the evening for a more cozy atmosphere. The bots are really well seasoned and the bone marrow is apparently very good too. On the other hand avoid the sea salad because it has nothing special (translation: we do as well at home).
=^..^= Note: all the scalers in front of the restaurant Le Central were also recommended to us to eat seafood on the thumb
For a nice breakfast:
La Licorne : I had been there with Paolo a few years ago to have a breakfast out of the train and it’s really good to have a waffle or a pancake with a hot chocolate.
For a drink:
L’Hôtel Normandy : OK OK, I cheat a bit because we unfortunately did not have enough time to go but I still recommend this address in my Deauville City Guide, because not only would I have loved to have a drink (near the fireplace) in this sumptuous and cozy setting but also because it is a mythical place to visit in Deauville.
To See :
I invite you to visit the Deauville market and the fish market in Trouville. Personally, we were impressed to see all the displays of scallops freshly picked up … and just to say they were at 5 € per kilo …;)
