Having come here annually for the last three years, very sadly, I believe the wonderful Jardin de Lou'Sa shuts down 1 April 2017. My french isnt quite good enough to understand the full reasons why - but we think it's because the lovely owners are fed up with french bureaucracy. Which is a tragedy. France is such a mess in...

A great value 3 course lunch at €15, really good food and excellent and friendly service. Doesn't look much from the outside, but don't let that put you off.

We chanced upon this gem after a walk from Escalles. We really enjoyed the Formule. The food is different beautifully prepared and imaginatively presented. The welcome was friendly and we wonder how in the past we have missed this.

My wife and I were ambling slowly back to Le Tunnel and fancied a coffee plus cake rather than a full lunch. We stopped in Sangatte, admired the beautiful beach then wondered whether a restaurant would just serve us coffees after 2.00 pm. We need not have worried here - the young patron was very welcoming and ushered us inside,... More

Having stayed in this village a few years ago, my friend suggested going to see the beautiful beach and having lunch before our return in the evening to the UK. Being French, I originally was prejudiced by Sangatte 's original reputation . How wrong was I ! Beautiful village, with a huge beautiful beach right on the other side of... More

Stopped off for lunch here and received a warm welcome and good food. We opted for the 15 euro set menu which started with a smoked salmon pate, and followed with moules frites, then cheese or desert. Food was good, service friendly, wine was reasonably priced. Its quite a funky interior design with a relaxed atmosphere. Quite small and clearly... More

What a superb find this place was. We just wanted a quick lunch before coming back to the UK on Eurotunnel. They do a lunch deal with a choice for €14, which is terrific value. Great food, friendly service and a nice ambience.

We visited twice during our short break to the Calais area. The food was well cooked and fairly priced. Great atmosphere on the Friday night, I believe this is because it is used predominantly by the locals. I will return.

If you want a massive choice, this isn't for you. But if you want to eat where the owners know their strengths and play to them, then book now (and you'll almost certainly need to). We've been several times, sometimes having the set meal and sometimes a la carte, and haven't had anything less than excellent. Tempura prawns and pot'je... More

The 14 euro menu is a remarkable bargain if you like the limited choices. The chicken rillettes with toast were perfectly seasoned with a hint of curry & prettily garnished with pea shoot & micro beet. The moules frites were the best I've had - perfect little sweet shellfish, delicious liquor, crunchy chips, home made mayo. The cherry clafoutis with... More
