Perfectly acceptable local bistro

Arriving in mid summer for one evening, all the restaurants were extremely busy. But we were fortunate to find a table in this tavern which served typical good French bistro style food. I must say I did not recognise the rudeness that some reviewers here refer to. Our service was perfectly... read more

Poor choice of drink, beer especially poor. Welcoming staff but food average. The pink kidneys I ate were far from the best.

He said that means us both having the set breakfast to which I replied that I didnt want orange juice, jams or anything else -... More

Rude staff, long waiting times for food! That's if they acknowledge your even waiting to order at all! I feel this is the decline... More

Having used this restaurant over the last 20 years oh what a total let down. We have seen it go down and down and now the staff are arrogant and rude . Save your money and go somewhere else.

Great suntrap! Stopped here for a few beers mid afternoon. The waiter was not as attentive as he could have been but this did not take away from the fact that it was a lovely place to watch the world go by. Lovely choice of wines and very reasonable.

A typically classic restaurant of Le Touquet in the centre on the corner of rue St Jean and Rue de Metz, a simple but nice.The decor is a little outdated but adds to the the charm of the restaurant. The food is good and we went a'la carte for lunch, we started with goats cheese parcels and beef carpaccio, followed... More

I was staying across the road at Hotel Red Fox and we took a table for all 10 of us as we were early for check in. A young man was "Serving" us and had a strange arrogance and dislike for our party. He didn't help us with the menu, when we asked questions about the menu he showed his... More

A bit cramped on a July lunchtime but this wasn't altogether surprising - le tout Paris comes to Le Touquet in the summer. But we were in town to look at the market - my wife has a weakness for French markets, and perhaps I do too, a bit. There was a table free, we sat down, the waiter laid... More
