We had lunch here on a day trip to Boulogne. We liked the decor and the waitress was very friendly. The food was fine but nothing special to be honest. We enjoyed our lunch and would visit again in the future.

We tried this as a family of five and were optimistic given that it looked busy. Things went south rapidly after that. We were seated in a cramped unlit alcove (lights were turned on after about half an hour). Food took an hour to arrive, no apologies or engagement from staff. The food (with the exception of the oysters) was... More

If you're looking for a reasonably priced lunch or dinner in a pleasant atmosphere the Le Parisien will fit the bill nicely. Wide menu choice at a variety of prices served with just the right amount of hauteur from the waiters. The cod with champagne and cream sauce was a real delight, might have been better with another type of... More

It was a Sunday night in early February. Cold and windy. In Le Parisien we found warmth, welcome, and good food. Nothing outstanding although the oysters were delicious, but no cooking involved there! Absolutely nothing to complain about.

The food was good. We ordered see food plate which was good enough and for comfortable price. The was good also. So this is not the best place in the city, but the offer good value for money

There are lots of restaurants on rue de Lille in the old town of Boulogne-sur-Mer. We ate here twice during our brief visit. It is the end of the season and fairly quiet but most of the restaurants were open, La Belle Epoque rivaled them all on price but offered more variety. It proved to be a good choice as... More

I have been here a few times on visits to Boulogne. It is in the old town part and in a very beautiful area. There are lots of other restaurants in the area too, all competing for your attention. I found the food here was really nice. I had mussels which I found nice but not very tasty. reading other... More

We have eaten here in previous visits to Boulgone, so were happy to try it again Being a warm evening we were able to sit outside, just allow for the table not being level as the restaurant is (as most of the places in the old town are) on a hill We found the service quick and friendly, the food...

We didn't completely eat a single dish of the 3 course menu. My girlfriend's lemon sole was still bloody (seriously), my fish soup was watery, the chips were horrible, and even the crème caramel was inedible. The coffee was alright though.

Not convinced that we had a bowl full of fresh mussels. Many of the shells were empty, which happens, but I'd expect to find them all in the juice at the bottom of the pan. Unfortunately, they were elusive. Service was okay, but there are plenty of other places to spend your money in. Would not recommend or return.

Thank H0lidaygirl45
