Super little restaurant......

Not the biggest of restaurants but a nice atmosphere, with a good menu (which is great value for money), good service and excellent food . Well worth a visit.

We stopped off for a meal in Saint-Omer on a wet Thursday night. Lots of places to eat but this one caught our eye, and I'm glad it did. Very helpful staff and a good menu, even for vegetarians. Went back to our awful hotel relaxed and reassured.

The food here was very good classic Italian dishes with good service and nice booths. We did not feel rushed at all although the place was very busy. The lasagne was delicious!

The service was generally good although we did feel a bit forgotten at times. The food was OK and reasonably priced but not as good as others we had in the same week. I would eat here again but wouldn't seek it out specially.

This is a typical no nonsense French bistro with no pretensions, just good honest food. The assiette de crudités is delicious, everything is always very fresh and the service is good, they let me speak French, even better!!

Cozy, intimate cubicles each with 2 tables for two in the front half, always very popular. Good menu (available in English) not expensive and big portions. Take an appetite with you!

I was staying in a local hotel with a colleague at a golf club and didn't really fancy eating in the restaurant as the menu was very pretentious and the staff were very much the same. We ventured out and found this amazing little bar/bistro. The extensive menu is in French and English and is very well priced. The staff... More

Looking for somewhere to eat on a Sunday evening (we literally just followed an elderly local couple on the basis they must have been heading somewhere and weren't just out ambling around) we ended up here. What a find! It is rather compact inside, they have packed plenty of seating in there. The service was good, a mix of English... More
