My dining partner is a fish eater. I am not. As a treat we went through Le Shuttle to the restaurant. Only a 26 minute drive. My non fish dishes were delightful and my partner enjoyed sweet and plump oysters and a Dover sole. If you like drinks from the area, try Le Genievre de Houlle Carte Noire. Wow, what... More

Decided to go with the daily specials & picked crisp skate cheeks with tartare sauce (& a little dressed salad), then a potage which was a thick, subtly spiced soup almost solid with chunks of different fish - mullet, hake, 2 others I didn't identify - & carrot, potato, celeriac, mussels in shell. A little pear & almond tart with... More

Driving to this restaurant will lead you into an industrial area with depots and lorries everywhere. From the outside, the restaurant actually looks like yet another depot but as you go in you'll be very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent. We had the 21 euro menu with a great starter, marinated herring, salmon file and cheese platter as dessert.... More

I don't understand why this place is considered for locals as the restaurant was mainly filled with tourists like us. It is preferable to arrive early, we came at noon and had no problem finding a table. At 12:30, the place was packed. I am not sure I understand why. This is an interesting place and the waiters are nice... More

As it says in the title.Get away from the tourists and enjoy grreat value fresh fish. As for Finbar, try to understand the French mentallity. In France it is considered rude to break off in mid conversation with someone, and even ruder to butt in to ask a question when somebody is having a conversation. Just wait until they have... More

Well hidden little gem in the heart of Capecure, Boulogne sur Mer. The outside of this fish restaurant is nothing to write home about however once through the doors it is a different world. We were greeted by a welcoming French waiter who spoke a little English, far more than we spoke French. He explained the menu and whilst contemplating... More

Don't let the cheap prices fool you! Wonderful food, friendly staff and good size portions. One of the best fish meals I have ever tasted. Book before you go thou! This place is packed. Also check opening times opens from 4am till 3:00pm, but double check. Busy but relaxing atmosphere.

Le Chatillon, which is hard to find in the middle of Capecure, the fish-canning sector of Boulogne sur Mer, is a genuine family restaurant, serving mainly fish to the fish experts from the fish industry that surrounds it. Excellent value at around 20 euros for a 3-course fairly extensive table-d'hote meal, this restaurant is almost always packed and booking (possibly... More

Probably the hardest restaurant to find. In the middle of the industrial part of Boulogne's fishing fraternity this is a real jewel of a restaurant. The 20 euro set menu is full of great fishy treats - the atmosphere is buzzing. Note this restaurant opens up at 4am and closes around 2pm. Originally for the sole use of local fishermen... More

This remains a great place to enjoy fresh fish and to meet the locals from one of the biggest fish ports in Europe. A must in Boulogne.
