【Rouen】A Lovely Local Restaurant, “Auberge Saint Maclou”


sponsored link

Today, I am recommending Auberge Saint Maclou, which is located in the city center of Rouen.

It was started in 2009 by 2 young men and they offer you French cuisine in the modern and old mixed vibes.

Dark wood furniture makes you feel comfortable and it is a perfect place to enjoy slow lunch or dinner.

Auberge Saint Maclou works with local producers. Hence, only fresh and high quality-promised ingredients are used for their dishes.

All meats, fish, vegetables, cheese, fruits, chocolate… everything is bought from where they think the best.

This is why their menu is limited, and it is a good sign of an authentic restaurant, isn’t it?

The Friendly Waitress

The waitress at Auberge Saint Maclou is very friendly. The menu is only in French but they will explain you in English.

They will help you to choose wine for your meal as well, thus you will not have any problems even if you don’t know any French.

Auberge Saint Maclou is not a luxury nor first class restaurant. This is where you will find a cozy atmosphere and how local people enjoy their meals.

For the accompaniment, a nice selection of French wines is available, which are offered by the glass, caraffe or the bottle. Local wine is a must for French cuisine to give it the final touch.
