On a busy Saturday night we landed a lovely table and the staff were very attentive - which isn't always the case in France.

We ordered the plate de fuit de mer which was great food and good value. The large plates really are a lot of food !!! Nice wine list at sensible prices and restaurant full on a Monday evening

Having limited choice due to a number of restaurants being closed on a wet Monday afternoon initially seemed a good choice but sorry to report very average may be we have been lucky and eaten at many very good restaurants in France unfortunately this was not one of them

Lots of restaurants in this delightful town which is well worth a visit. Noticed this one busier than most and full of locals, always a good sign. I ordered a seafood platter and she ordered a plate of prawns. They put them all in one big platter which could be off putting to some especially as it was all so... More

We have visited Le Nicol's quite a few times over the years as we have friends with a house in St Valery. It always used to be a very good restaurant with a typically French atmosphere, good food & service. Last week we went for the first time in several years to find it had totally changed. Now with rather... More

We were rushed through our meal even though it was not late. Fish dishes were good. My partner and I both had the set menus which were good value and well presented. Sadly, the courses were served one after another with no time in between. Not sure why as the restaurant was not packed out so it's not as if... More

We had a very good dinner at Le Nichol's - a very nice restaurant in beautiful St Valery. We shared an enormous seafood platter - L'Opale - more than enough for the two of us and filled with crab, langoustines, prawns, shrimps and other crustaceans. We followed up with a shared plate of a French-style paella which we really didn't... More

Over the four years since we have known Le Nicol's, in the heart of St Val, we have seen it change. Our first meal some four or five years ago was a treat, great food and wine with attentive service, but over the next couple of years we were disappointed and after two more tries looked elsewhere when we wanted...

We went as a couple for a romantic meal and weren't disappointed. Great food, good selection of wine and the service was impeccable. Try the savoury Picardy pancake for a starter it was delicious!
