“Fantastic restaurant !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

We have an amazing meal for only 14 euros for 3 courses! Really good traditional French cooking in a lovely garden setting. We were served by the owners who were polite, friendly and helpful. The meal came with small aperitifs to start with and various choices, all of which were expertly cooked. Highly recommended if you are in the area, La Garenne is deservedly placed first in the restaurants in Hesdin.

“The most romantic restaurant in France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is one of our favorite haunts in France, it is ambiance plus plus. Always a lovely menu and a wine list to die for. I must mention the cheese board, it is the best I've ever seen (although I must admit you need to be very hungry). Staff do not speak much English, so your French needs to be good. The restaurant is split into three very different rooms all beautiful, plus outside dining amongst the trees. The food is always wonderful.

“Heavenly beautiful food in Nord par de Calais”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

We came here yesterday with two friends, them having eaten here over twenty years ago. The welcome was very warm and inviting and we chose to eat in the beautiful garden. The amuse bouche was a tantalising taste bid tingler of shredded pork with cream and lemon, just delicious. I then had a pancake with the most delicious filling if fresh seafood and a stunning sauce. Followed by rognon in the mod delicate media sauce. The local cheeses were magnificent as was the gorgeous dessert. Wherever you are in the north of France, a visit here is an absolute must. Just fantastic.

“Superb Restaurant & very French”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We visited when staying in Hesdin at the end of May 2013. We were a party of 8 including 2 kids. Our party ate from the €20 & €25 menus. As other reviewers have said the food is perfect (think awesome fine dining quality) & the portions are enormous (think American diner sized portions!) I ate mussels & mushrooms to start, followed by steak (cooked to perfection on the open wood fire in the dining room)
The kids weren't too hungry so asked for some chips & baguette (not on the menu) which was no problem at all & there was no charge for these!
The décor is unmistakeably French & seriously quirky too. We had a perfect evening!
Including soft drinks & 2 bottles of wine the final bill was only €180. This is quite simply one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at. Superb.

Don't miss out on eating at this place if you're staying in Hesdin or within 50kms
