My boyfriend and I visited this place for lunch based on the reviews here and we were not disappointed. Friendly staff, delicious food and extra rum in the rum baba!! Don't miss this place- it's off the beaten track but well worth it.

The Chatillon is a special restaurant that caters for the people who work in Boulogne's wholesale fish market. The market is one of the most important in Europe, and so the restaurant has access to the best seafood...that's a good start. But the restaurant is also founded on a sort of generosity of spirit that serves the community from within.... More

We enjoyed an excellent lunch with helpful and friendly staff at this restaurant. A little difficult to find in the industrial port - but well worth the trouble.

Don't be put off by the surroundings, yes it's on the middle of the industrial bit of the port and looks very uninspired outside. But that just means they have access to the best fish in Boulogne. We had the best meal we have eaten in the nord there. The Gish was all tasty and cooked to perfection. Its easy... More

What a warm welcome, the staff are fantastic, they speak good English and were so helpfull, the fish was cooked beautifully, the place is mad busy, we called early in the morning and booked.If you are not mad on fish, don,t go there is only one meat dish. I had scallops, Skate in a butter sauce and cheese.

To get there from old town go down down down to the port level, cross the bridge and then bear right. Once you've passed the Findus warehouse building you're nearly there. Pleasant welcome into a pleasant space. Attentive service, very good food in large quantities. Inexpensive "menu" at 22euro for 3 very large courses. Inexpensive carafes of wine. English spoken....

Do not be deceived by the area and the aroma around about. Once inside this delightful restaurant you will be pleasantly surprised. We ate at lunchtime, had to wait 40 minutes but it was well worthwhile, just watching and enjoying a very busy restaurant and the French at lunch. There is a superb selection of food on offer and the... More

Did not eat in restaurant but wish we had as it looked more interesting than the Boulogne venue we chose (was getting late so we're in a hurry) Breakfast was good

Don't be put off by the bland exterior and location. This restaurant is fantastic! So buzzy and lively, the waiters were all extremely friendly and made an effort to converse with us in English. The set menu is a must, with the help of google translate we found it impossible to choose between the mouthwatering options. I went for langoustines... More
