Stopped at Etaples for lunch on the way south and found Au Vieux Port. It was about 1.30 and it was nearly full with French people. The staff were very polite and the service was good but the best bit was the quality of the food. It was excellent even though we all had the 13 euro menu. With wine 5 of us ate really well for 90 Euros. It would not happen in England - France at its best.

Etaples was the first stop on the way down to Spain. Were disappointed as it looked shut then we saw the restaurant which was very welcoming. Steaks to die for, too big for one to eat but lovely to try. Pleasant and helpful staff who only wanted a trip advisor review which was very well deserved

I've been in the area for 26 years but this was my first visit. I shall now make up for those lost years by becoming a regular. Au Vieux Port does what we all hope/expect France to do well - but are often disappointed - good, simple, fresh, well-cooked local food at a price that is thoroughly honest. The service, at least at lunchtime, was slick and quick. There were only two waiters on duty but they were highly efficient. Although I only had one course (I had a train to catch), the three course Menu du Jour at Euros13.60 sounded extraordinarily good value given that the main course was Sole Meuniere.

We had a fantastic meal here last night, food and service were really very good. We wanted a small casual bar/restaurant to feed the family and this ticked all boxes. The only minor let down was that the loo's needed a bit of a clean and towels changing- a good time was had however.

We were a group of cyclists having our lunch stop in the course of a 90 mile loop from Calais. Staff unfazed by the size of our group and the food and service were excellent.
