Frozen mussels used.

Not convinced that we had a bowl full of fresh mussels. Many of the shells were empty, which happens, but I'd expect to find them all in the juice at the bottom of the pan. Unfortunately, they were elusive. Service was okay, but there are plenty of other places to spend your money in. Would... read more

I have been here a few times on visits to Boulogne. It is in the old town part and in a very beautiful area. There are lots of other restaurants in the area too, all competing for your attention. I found the food here was really nice. I had mussels which I found nice but not very tasty. reading other... More

We have eaten here in previous visits to Boulgone, so were happy to try it again Being a warm evening we were able to sit outside, just allow for the table not being level as the restaurant is (as most of the places in the old town are) on a hill We found the service quick and friendly, the food...

We didn't completely eat a single dish of the 3 course menu. My girlfriend's lemon sole was still bloody (seriously), my fish soup was watery, the chips were horrible, and even the crème caramel was inedible. The coffee was alright though.

We were recently in Boulogne an the restaurant we usually eat in, the Swan, was full. We had previously eaten in Le Parisien and were very disappointed. however, we decided to give it another chance and were very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant has been redecorated, the owner and waitress were both friendly and helpful, the food was excellent, the wine... More

There are many restaurants along this street offering moules, couldn't try them all but this one was well patronised by French people so thought we'd give it a go. Couldn't fault them. Perfectly cooked, sweet and succulent. Not a bad one to be seen and a very plentiful pot of them. Really enjoyable.

Having been to Boulogne-sur-Mer a few times and always eaten in The Swan we decided to change and we're not disappointed, we had champagne to start with and 2 of the 3 course set meals which were great value, my streak with Roquefort sauce was really good and the house wine was very pleasant and including coffees and a tip...

I ordered monkfish, when it arrived it was dry and inedible.my husband ordered skate wing, it arrived and must have been cooking for hours. The sauce that both dishes were served with was... More

For the last few years had an away day with friends to France our lunch had always been a good experience. On this occasion we made a big mistake choosing this one , would strongly recommend not to use it. Most of our meals were clearly reheated - the bread was damp and cold - obviously straight out of the... More
