French Dinner

Had dinner here on our first night in Le Touquet. Busy restaurant with staff running around all over the place. Left waiting a long time for a table, drinks order and meals. The food is lovely though!

We have been eating at this brasserie for over 30 years. It always represented solid French cuisine. Even following a take over about three years ago, it maintained and improved its operation. However, following a major kitchen fire about 18 months ago and its opening about 6 months ago it has deteriorated. It may be under a new owner. On... More

I guess the first hint of trouble was the whiff of the sewer that hit my nostrils when I lifted the black enamelled lid of the moules pot. Trouble was, having recently given up the evil weed, I thought this might be what mussels usually smelled like. I looked into the pot. The onions all seems to be in a... More

There was a big table free outside with all the others occupied. The waiter obviously didn't want to have to go to the trouble of clearing the table and said he didn't have time to do it. Have eaten here before and had a good meal. As a customer this time I walked away.

Ate dinner here last week. Absolutely shocking food. Had the skate and it was inedible. Left it all after one mouthful. My wife had the sea bass and it was horribly overcooked. Our sone had the duck which was ok, in a very ordinary way. You do not expect bad fish in Le Touquet but they managed it. Truly awful.

Just be aware that this restaurant is quite cramped. Four of us barely got round a table meant for that number. There is also a space for large groups and indeed a large English group with children came in. They were perfectly well behaved but it wouldn't always be like this and due to the very close proximity of the... More

We were a party of 6 and had a thoroughly enjoyable Sunday lunch at this restaurant. Nice welcome, good service, everyone enjoyed their food and the accompanying pinot noir. Would definitely recommend!

We have been coming to Le Touquet for a decade or so and La Taverne has become our regular. Every year it delivers a typical french lunchtime with all the usual staples that would be expected. My veal kidneys being a perfect example of food unavailable in England, cooked wonderfully well. Our lunch was so relaxed we were am hour... More

We have dined here many times over the past 20 years and it has changed little in that time, thank goodness! Proper waiting staff in black attire and white saprons, linen tablecloths and napkins. Fluent English is spoken. Typical French food offering a wide choice including excellent seafood. Quality of food and drink is high and prices reasonable. On our... More

Given it's in Le Touquet the prices are reasonable and you get what you expect - Relatively simple decent food well cooked. Expect 40 per head including a bottle of Chablis.
