“NOT QUITE AS GOOD”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Very nice - if slightly eccentric - service. They have stopped using pen and paper and the girls have "tablets" which drive them as mad as it does the customers.

VERY expensive glass of champagne in a VERY small glass - I felt cheated. But the main courses were perfectly prepared and served. Short but interesting wine list.

Quite costly considering that is only really a beach cafe with pretensions, albeit half a mile from the sea. I'd not go back - which is one of my tests.

“A great find”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

It is not easy to find a good modern French restaurant for lunch in the Pas de Calais, so La Chaloupe, just north-east of Wissant on the coast road between Calais and Boulogne, was a welcome discovery. A good ambience and a wide choice on the menu, all at a reasonable price. When we run out of wine, we’ll be back!

“Worth a detour”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

Sunday lunch is still the thing to have for most families and friends and this place was heaving which indicated the the well prepared and cooked food. Good fish and a variety of meat gives a well balanced menu along with a similar wine list. Not cheap but by todays standards not too overpriced. The atmosphere is good and the service mostly efficient and friendly, most dishes averaged 16E whilst starters and deserts 9E; lunch for 3 was 120E including 1 bottle and 1 carafe of wine. Good owner who takes an interest in his customers and a restaurant which exudes cleanliness and order. Do go, its worth a stop short of the Calais crossing and for us was the perfect end to a lovely holiday. Reserved by email (another TripAdvisor tip) and was answered most efficently.
