Normandy help

We are about to go on a very brief trip to Normandy. This board has been very helpful before so I am hoping for restaurant suggestions for this trip. We like real French food but don't expect every meal to be Michelin quality. Unfortunately, we can't handle two great meals a day any more so are looking for lighter lunches and nice dinners. Price isn't a primary concern but we don't want to go overboard on every meal. Itinerary as follows:

Friday lunch - Chartres. Maybe La Vieille Maison or Les Feuillantines?
Friday night - Mont St Michel. We are staying on the island and I have no real hope for excellent food. It will be the end of a long day so probably don't want to leave the island. Any suggestions for at least a decent meal?

Saturday lunch - maybe somewhere along the coast above Bayeux?
Saturday dinner - Bayeux. Maybe La Rapiere or Table de Terroir?

Sunday lunch - maybe Trouville or Honfleur? Or somewhere along the coast between Bayeux and Honfleur
Sunday dinner - already have reservations at Sa.Qua.Na. Great recommendations but I have no real idea about the food. Also, will a nice sweater, collared shirt, and slacks be OK or will my husband need a jacket?

Monday lunch and dinner - Rouen. No ideas so far and Gill is closed. This will be our last night so I would like a nice dinner.

I appreciate any help. Thanks!
