Jean-Luc Tartarin

Jean-Luc Tartarin has a profound connection to his homeland of Normandy and crafts seafood dishes that blend the modernism of Le Havre with the essence of the Normandy countryside: line-caught pollock seared in Colombo oil; succulent langoustine kissed by rosemary embers; calf’s sweetbread in breadcrumbs with morels and green asparagus. Presented in a cocooned interior adorned with soothing beige tones, it is situated in the heart of the historic town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. A curated wine list and a selection of ciders and calvados complement the culinary experience.

Chef’s Journey

Before settling here, in the city center of Le Havre, Jean-Luc Tartarin trained under demanding chefs and asserted himself at the helm of kitchens with character: a comprehensive experience, blending rigor with the freedom to create.

Born in a small village near Caen, the Chef rubbed shoulders with renowned chefs, benefiting from their experience, from Gilbert Plaisance at Les Galets in Veules-les-Roses to Gilles Tournadre at Gill in Rouen, and Gérard Boyer at Les Crayères in Reims.

It was at the Manoir de Rétival, where he established himself with his family in Caudebec-en-Caux, that he earned his first Michelin star, before continuing at La Folie du Bois des Fontaines, in the heart of the Domaine des Forges in Forges-les-Eaux, and then leading the kitchen of the restaurant La Villa in Le Havre, an establishment steeped in history, on the beach of Le Havre.

The time had come to settle at home, in 2008, in the heart of Le Havre, on Avenue Foch, and to offer his delicate, audacious, and precise cuisine, rewarded in 2009 with a Michelin star and 4 Gault&Millau toques, distinctions that have stayed with him ever since.
