The reason for our previous 3 or 4 visits to this hotel was to sample the excellent produce purveyed in its restaurant and it was always at least a 4 star experience. The experience was overall expensive and we were glad to pay the price. However, on our recent visit, the cuisine experience left an awful lot to be desired... More

A very nice restaurant not far from Nausicaa which is worth a visit . perfect day may be visit to Nausicaa center and finish by the restaurant . If available you should try the homard menu which is perfect ...cosy ambiance and very good service . You can even buy the Champagne served which is good for a nice price... More

Food very good but I thought the wine list somewhat overpriced and too much emphasis on Northern wines. I actually enjoyed the fish soup and agree that it did not look at all as I usually expect but the taste was really nice. Go for the set menu unless you have deep pockets but expect just 3 choices per course.... More

The restaurant is facing the Nausicaa. The cuisine is top quality and good price. No process food, all made from scratch, excellent taste and variety. If you stay overnight in the hotel, you will see the breakfast is also outstanding. I highly recommend.

Over from the UK with friends for lunch, we discovered this restaurant near the Nausicaa aquarium. And what a discovery! We had the 35 Euro set menu and it didn't disappoint. From the delightful amuse-bouches to dessert, everything was beautifully cooked and presented imaginatively. Service was attentive and friendly and there was a great atmosphere in the busy room.

It takes something to ruin fresh fish but la Matelote managed it with clumsy, uncaring execution. I had two courses where the ingredients were thrown together on the plate and drowned in very ordinary sauces. Not special and very expensive.

After a long walk around the old part of Boulogne we came back to what I thought was just a bistro restaurant, Oh no we had a surprise when we ate Tonys food a good one at that. After being nicely greeted and seated in the window to watch the sun set while we ate my husband and I choice... More

Having visited this restaurant a few years ago I was looking forward to our visit for lunch during our day trip to France. The food did not live up to expectations. The fish soup had a triangular piece of white bread with melted cheese on the top and looked very unappetising, the sole and the St Pierre were both overcooked... More

This is the second Michelin one star restaurant to disappoint within the past couple of months and suggests the renowned culinary institution needs either to revisit its judging criteria or visit what it rates more often or anonymously. Bottom line: the cuisine and service is competent and uses fresh products however lacks the creativity and technical finesse expected of starred... More
