We enjoyed it as much as ever (see previous review). The service is efficient and friendly, the food reliably delicious and well presented, in good portion sizes. This visit the pancake dessert was especially pleasing.

Lurking in a cul de sac of unattractive buildings off Place de la Republique is a worthy member of Toques d'Opale. Stephane Prevot (formerly at Grand Cerf Marquise) has a comfortable (seats with arms) and cheerfully decorated restaurant with ground floor and gallery. He welcomes you personally if you come at noon, and talks to customers after their meals if not too busy.
The two short menus are excellent value (daily changing blackboard & tdh), and the place was completely full - of locals. We have a favourite starter here, the foie gras enclosing passion fruit jelly & rolled in toasted hazelnuts, which lures us back despite the distance from Calais. Today we followed it with the fish of the day, a good piece of the unusual & delicious blue ling with a beurre blanc and rice with a brunoise of veg in it, very light. Local new potatoes appeared on the side, a real treat. The home-made nougat glace was pretty special too, & the coffee (hot) packed a good caffeine punch. Caveat, there is never cheese! A deliberate & quirky omission from the carte that does not bother us a jot. Charming staff. Book using website.
