“A warm welcome back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Once again this friendly, unpretentious restaurant in Wimereux was our lunchtime refuge on a cold, blustery November day, on our way back to England.

The standard is consistent. As I said in an earlier review, the food is uncomplicated and reasonably priced. The helpings are generous. The service was very attentive. There were lots of locals there, which is always a good sign. And the staff readily speak English in a natural and helpful way. It makes a huge difference. I’ll be going back next year!

“The Friendly North”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

However good its food a restaurant is nothing without a proper welcome. And that is what I’ve had on my three lunchtime visits to Cap Nord on the sea front in lovely Wimereux. And I have seen other customers made to feel at home straight away. The staff greet everyone warmly, speak English if you need help, and you can even wave to the chefs through the large hatch. They will readily add tables if you come in a group or remove place settings if you come as a couple so that you feel comfortable.

The brasserie food is honest, fresh and reasonably-priced. On our last visit I had grilled salmon and chips. Perfect. And after a while of pasta deprivation, my husband tucked into a satisfying dish of penne Bolognese. You can also drop in at any time of day for a sandwich, an ice cream or a drink.

If you would like a simple, relaxed meal with lovely sea views, go for it!

“Perfect moules-frites and fish salads”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

On Wimereux's glorious promenade there are three or four cafe/restaurants but we usually go to Cap Nord. We've sat outside in the blazing summer sun, and been snugly tucked indoors when the winter sea is doing its worst! Usual northern coast France food with perfect moules-frites and fish salads. Catherine and her staff provide a warm welcome. The cafe gourmand tastes as good as it looks in the photo.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012 via mobile

Good location on the promenade and in the centre of things. Excellent seafood and value for money with cheerful service. Well worth a visit.
