Laid back atmosphere with good service.

Excellent value for money would highly recommend.

“Cheap, testy and nicely served”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

We had the 15 euro Plat de Jour and it was delicious. Proper onion soup, moules mariniere, nice mains and Normandy tart or crème brûlée to finish. Two beers, a jug of wine, coffee and fifty euros in total. All nicely served by friendly and helpful waitresses. It's not your posh stuff, no frothy spit or square plates but it's really nice and its French.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Great restaurant in the old town of Boulogne. We took advantage of the set menu - 15 euro per person and we enjoyed rustic pate for starters, fish (for me) and Beef burg (for hubby) and then both had crème brulee for dessert. Amazing food and amazing value for money. Childrens menu offered but wish they had pasta on it. Would certainly recommend and will certainly be visiting again x

“Delicious Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We ate in Le Swan recently and where not disappointed. My husband popped his head in the door to see if we could book - NO Problem Monsiuer, we went back about 45 mins later to a very friendly welcome and shown to our table. Restaurant was nicely busy and a good buzz. We both had the 15 Euro set menu, Moules, Boeuf Bourguinon, and Chocolate Mousse for me, for my husband Onion Soup, Grilled steak and Chocolate Mousse. Superb. Glass of champagne and 2 carafes of house vin blanc with tip 60 Euros. We will definitely return.

“Nice meal, nice location, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is a nice little restaurant in the old walled town in Boulogne. We ate early and the restaurant gradually filled up whilst we were there. However, the only waitress coped admiiably, keeping up with the orders, even when people were arriving close together.

The food was excellent. In particular we can recommend the boeuf bourguignon.

I would be more than happy to return if we stay in Boulogne again.
