This is the place to visit. The menu is perfectly suited to anyone interested in dining in a true French restaurant. The service was friendly and helpful - fluent French and English spoken, wine recommended for my meal. The food was incredible, the atmosphere was lovely and the price was outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We chose this restaurant for our last night in France after a fantastic holiday in the south with friends. I picked it because of the previous good reviews and because the website gave me the option to contact them by email to make a booking - much easier when out on the road the previous day. I heard back from... More

We were four people for lunch. They have different possible menus at reasonable prices. The waitress is very friendly and welcoming. The food is tasty and originally served. The place is nice and quiet. You'd better reserved before going since it is often full. We definitely recommend that restaurant.

Everything on the menu looked great and it tasted even better. At 22 euros for 3 courses the value puts restaurants in England to shame. Make sure you book in advance as you won't have much chance of getting a table without a reservation.

We had such a lovely meal here when we visited St Omer a few weeks ago, although the menu is quite small I had trouble choosing as it all looked lovely! We really enjoyed it and will deffinitely return.

We first visited this restaurant in April 2014 and loved it. We revisited when we returned to Saint Omer and it was even better!

Visited Saint Omer again in July and had another wonderful evening meal at La Belle Epoque. Love the decor and the ambiance. The food was superb and the service second to none. The menu choices are carefully thought out with very reasonable prices to suit everyone. If we lived there I would go every week.
