SaQuaNa, Honfleur

22 Place Hamelin, Honfleur

Best meal of 2015. Wonderful seafood in the gastronomic backwater of Honfleur. My wife took the kids to a butterfly farm, so I could come here. Worth the sacrifice. Had the full range of techniques – Yorkshire pudding (!), poached monkfish in coconut broth (sublime), steamed salmon, sea-bream risotto with green tomatoes, grilled pollack with ginger/soy emulsion. Textbook pigeon. Iced baklava. 

Big flavours, sensitive technique. Can’t remember having better seafood cooking. Well worth a detour.
