“Extremely disappointing...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

We were so disappointed with this restaurant. We picked it as it was #3 on trip advisor in Dunkerque, sat nav couldn't find the address so we ended up walking a long way to get to it. The coupe de crevettes entree contained surimi and just 3 prawns for over €10, then we were made to wait over 45 minutes for our mains. Our children were left starving as the staff waited till our main course to bring the children's dishes. The Moules we ordered for main were awful. The marinere sauce was tasteless and the creme was poor. The mussels were extremely gritty and had now been cleaned properly. Extremely disappointing. Sorry, my first negative review ever. Such a shame. Also all other tables were served bread while we were not and no one asked us if we wanted any drinks after the first 2 that we ordered. I even had to go to the bar to get the bill as no one was coming to our service! :(
