The St.Leu area is quite diverse beginning with the shops and cafés along rue Vanmarcke which are obviously serving the thriving student population. Crossing over the bridge towards Quai Bélu one finds the touristy area comprising several bars/restaurants (but usually open on Sundays which is a bonus). Have eaten in some of these restaurants and they are not that expensive.... More

We walked through this area both during the day and night and it has a great feel to it. It's just behind the glorious cathedral, so easy to find. We had coffee in one restaurant and dinner in another, and it seems that where you go in the area there is a good welcome. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful spot by the river, nice restaurants, buildings, park either just to wander or to stop at a bar and soak up the ambience. Look out for the car obviously placed in the river near the statue, a students prank I think.

Just the area to amble round, looking at the buildings and the mediaeval layout. The few shops are small and "touristy" but you are not there to shop. It isn't entirely traffic free and the cobbled surface is difficult for the less mobile, but otherwise a pleasant amble between the Cathedral and the restaurants. Weekend evenings are more exciting as... More

Many shops with a variety of goods. A good Subway shop for a snack in the middle of old town. On holidays everything is closed. You have to park outside the old town and walk the streets.

I had lunch in St. Leu, the old quartier of Amiens. I was disappointed that there were only restaurants there and was hoping to do some shopping too, but unfortunately there wasn't one shop. I decided to have a Galette at the only restaurant towards the end that makes Galettes. I ate indoors as it was a cool day, but... More

Lovely area with lots of restaurants/cafes and bars to choose from, all on the river. The views along the water were lovely with very old bridges

We had two walks round St Leu - the first one was disappointing but on the second one we went round the back way which is very quaint and pretty, and it's pleasant finding the bars and restaurants overlooking the little canal.
