Thank you Tripadvisor! We ended staying in Boulogne for longer than we had anticipated so had a look for restaurant recommendations on TA. I admit that we had walked past this restaurant at least twice without really noticing it as it is not as "loud" as many of the others along this street. All I can say is wow! From... More

We booked at this restaurant for a Saturday evening as we had read so many good reviews and we were not disappointed. I was there with a colleague who is also something of a "foodie" and we were both warmly welcomed by the charming young proprietress & her chef. The place is situated in a small street in the Old...

Visited Boulogne on a quiet Tue eve, saw this restaurant had good reviews on tripadvisor so decided to give it a go. It's located on a nice street at the top of a hill & we had a lovely evening meal here. The place is tiny but as it was a weekday they had a couple of tables free. The... More

Like other reviewers, I have to admire how a lady can prepare such great meals in such a tiny space, in full view of customers seated downstairs. Our lunch was simple but delicious. Husband's steak kebab was particularly good and I really enjoyed my local cheeses. We were sad to hear from the present owners that the restaurant has been... More

We don't understand how it is possible for 1 lady to give a superb service, nice food tips, to do the cooking herself, doing the dishes, etc... And giving us a great meal for a group of 8! All ordering something different! We enjoyed our evening that much that we're thinking about going back to Boulogne, just for the restaurant!

After reading all the hype we recently ate there. The staff are very friendly and efficient but the food very average. The starters were small and very uninteresting and there was no fish on the mains .The chips were overcooked and tasted as they were fried from frozen. There was very limited choice in everything and only very limited accompaniments... More

We knew it was small as we ate here when it had different owners but you really are jammed in. I am glad we were upstairs because it's not quite so jammed as downstairs. Lunch was nice, particularly the onion tart starter but beware vegetarians, it had ham in it!

We lunched here based on the Tripd reviews and were not disappointed. It has all been said before, food is great and the owners make you feel very welcome. The menu is explained in English to you in a friendly and informative way and I would recommend this place thoroughly. In truth it doesn't look much from the outside and... More

Fantastic find through Trip Advisor, this small chic restaurant is a real treat. JC is an exceptionally good host, with excellent English. Sylvie is a miracle worker, producing amazing food in a really bijou kitchen. We had the 22 Euro menu with choice of 4 starters, 4 desserts and various entrees including beef, pork, duck and fish. Superb!
