Deauville: Michelin star & gastronomic restaurants you shouldn't miss
New call-to-action

Deauville… With its unmissable boardwalk along the sand, its colourful parasols and its half-timbered houses, the pretty seaside resort has become a legendary destination. Here, we come to escape the city and breathe the sea air for a weekend with family in Normandy

Butter, cream, milk, cider... Normandy's regional products are rich and diverse. Typically simple yet generous, the local cuisine is a favourite for many talented chefs who like to reinvent traditional meals. Between land and sea, discover modern takes on these exquisite dishes, perfect for your Normandy beach holidays.

Hubert Nobis, Arnaud Viel, Mickaël Marion, or even Jean-Luc Tartarin: all these stars share the common goal of carrying Normandy's colours high and proud. With traditional dishes such as Vire andouille sweetbread or Normande-style scallops, it's a stronghold of French cuisine where regional know-how blends with  delicious simplicity.


Between two seafood tastings with your feet in the sand, treat yourself to a dinner in one of the top Michelin restaurants in Normandy. Follow us to discover the best Michelin restaurants in Deauville:


Meeting between East and West
