Popped over for a quick booze cruise - stopped the night in St Omer and found one of our favourite eateries was closed. Remembered a recommendation about La Belle Époque - wasn't disappointed. Good wine selection, uncompleted menu, doing good food well. Hosting was immaculate and engaging. Would recommend the local cheeses as a finish.

We have just returned from St Omer and had evening dinner on two occasions. Highly recommended - excellent and friendly service with freshly cooked food which I think is very good value for money. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners Cedric and Kate who are very professional in the way they operate this restaurant. We have had dinner... More

I've been to La Belle Epoque several times and know it would be a disaster to go to all the trouble of visiting St Omer only to find the restaurant full. So this time to be sure I booked our table at La Belle Epoque before the Eurotunnel and the hotel in St Omer. Why it is so special is... More

Delightful restaurant run by French husband (chef) and English wife (front-of-house / waitress) team. Very friendly welcome and very professional service. Sensible range of choices on the menu with some French classics and some dishes with a more modern twist. Good quality cooking throughout. Four courses, including cheese, for about 30 Euros (plus wine). Again, a sensibly chosen fairly short... More

La Belle Epoque has to be the best restaurant in St Omer, by a street. Classic French cuisine, beautifully prepared and presented, and thoughtfully brought up to date. There is a well selected wine list and the service is charming, efficient and well informed, so it's well-nigh perfect. Excellent. Thank you so much.

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and it lived up to it's fantastic reviews. First tip, make sure you book a table as this is a very popular place. We went as a group of four friends and following the reviews, decided to stop over in Saint Omer rather than Calais before we returned to the UK. Saint Omer... More

A winning French/British husband and wife team combination with husband in the kitchen and his wife managing the front of house. With everything in French and English this is the perfect way to gradually acclimatise again to the language and culture. Friendly small bistro kind ofambiance with excellent service and wonderful food. Set menus were good value and wines reasonably... More
