It was close to 10 pm - but no problem - and we still got the best oysters we ever tasted and two fine crabs. A good place to stop, just inside France.

We wanted a seafood restaurant and the receptionist at our hotel recommended here and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and food delicious. I had oysters for starters and fish for main. Can't remember what the... More

There isn't a lot in Valenciennes but this is a gem. We have a 3 course meal each and everything was lovely. We were lucky the weather as lovely and we could eat outside. Everything was as it should be.

We eat two times for celebration. It is a little traditional in modern environment. You can get good seafood, shells and also traditional frog legs.

I was recommended this by the hotelier and I'm grateful to him. This is how you imagine French food should be. An amuse geulle followed by an excellent prawn gateau and a very tender steak with home made chips all for a reasonable price perfectly corresponds to expectations.

We had reserved and confirmed our dinner for about 12 people and as we arrived, our table was already occupied by a group of happy tourists. Well, the owner has done a mistake, a real misunterstanding ! The situation could have turned angry, but he succeded in convincing this group to go in another restaurant, so we had our table...
