We were very lucky to get the last table on a Sunday night. The service was excellent - the extremely pleasant and helpful lady was in fact English so with my school level French no lost in translation!! The food was superb and we had a delightful bottle of red. The price was amazingly low and if back in St... More

This restaurant must be one of the best finds in Saint Omer. Service, food and wine all faultless. Three courses for 23 euro! If you are in the town this restaurant is a must.

We were really glad to get in to this restaurant as it was a Friday and we hadn't booked. Lovely lady looking after us. They had a fixed price menu, price depended on how many courses you had, and there were 5 options per course, they even had an option to have starter and pudding if you were not that... More

Spending one night in St Omer we wanted a good meal and we were not disappointed at la Belle Epoque. We all went for the 3 course menu and each dish was superb. The wine was good and the service excellent. Could not fault it in any way. Hope to return and eat here again

Myself, Mrs and junior LP booked into la belle epoque for easter Saturday evening. Due to a delay in our plans (live premier football in the local bar) we were running late. A quick phone call confirmed our table was still ok. Easy to find, on the corner of the main square, we were welcomed to a table. Overall impression... More

Beautiful dining room good service and well cooked food and a waitress who was good at her job but a little overworked. We were the only English people at the restaurant which was an indication of its good quality and a pleasant change in this part of France

We spotted this restaurant while wandering around in the Saturday afternoon, even though it was closed and in darkness the room looked very warm and inviting. We decided to visit that evening and what a superb experience it turned out to be, excellent food and very friendly service from a husband and wife team. Couldn't fault the food & really... More

After many visits to St. Omer we decided to try a couple of new things. Some things don't change so it was back to Le Cygne and Drie Kalders for evening meals first and the tried the Belle Epoque as it has a good write up on Tripadvisor. I can confirm that it is up there with the other two... More
