I recommend the onion soup and beef bourginon and crème brulee! Most of the staff speak reasonably good English and are very welcoming. Very reasonably priced set menu.

Very good traditional French home cooking. The snails, onion soup, boeuf bourginon and wing of skate were delicious!

Called in on our last night of our trip in France and had a nice meal from their set menu. Service was good and very friendly. Our dog was allowed in with us which was great. Only criticism would be that the food could have been seasoned abut better.

Second visit to this lovely restaurant. On our first visit, the owner was extremely accommodating as we had a guest that had very particular dietary requirements, after a little explanation, a big smile, the owner produced a wonderful lunch. This prompted our second visit and we were not disappointed. Lovely food, starter of maroille filled mushrooms was delicious, nice steaks... More

Our starter was mediocre - scallops in leek sauce, underseasoned. I had moules which you really can't go wrong with. My husband had the sirloin steak it was the worst he has ever had - tough and tasteless. When the waitress asked how the meal was I said mine was fine but that the steak was tough - she could'nt...

Somewhere we’ve eaten quite a few times over the years and always enjoyed the experience. However, the place has been re-named (Le Swan vs Le Cygne), refurbished and redecorated, and has a new menu that looks like the old one. Sadly the experience has changed for the worse. There is loud intrusive “music” – well male rap and adverts from... More

We spent a long weekend in Boulogne and went here for dinner. It was quiet in the Catherdal grounds but busy in the restaurant. Delicious steak and chips. We did struggle with communication as the waitress did not speak English and couldn't understand our attempts at French. However, a very enjoyable evening and would definitely recommend. We would have gone... More

We decided to eat here again because of our enjoyment of the meal last time. We chose the brochette de poisson and was not disappointed - an excellent selection of fish and really filling. The squid starter was excellent.
