“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

We tried this restaurant due to it being the number 3 on trip ad is or for le Touquet. We say outside as it was warm, the male waiter was very moody and when I asked for butter with my bread it didn't come despite me waiting to eat it for 10 mins! My gravlax was so salty I could barely eat it and I love salty good, but it was covered in rock salt. My husbands haddock was also over seasoned but not so badly. My main was a joke, small spoonful of pasta pesto with and over cooked salmon fillet on the side! I wouldn't even serve that at a dinner party! Very poor! My husband had risotto with mussels and prawns, his prawns were cold and the portion was minoscule! Dessert was nice - apple tart, but cannotgonwrong there. House white was £26 which I thought was steep, all in all I was very upset to pay £80 for this meal. Honestly don't bother trying it for yourself

“A GOOD RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

We had an absolutely first class meal with excellent efficient and friendly service. The food was of the highest standard and produced without excessive waiting, most attractively presented and very flavorsome.

The furniture and decor were more comfort led than designer dominated but were the perfect setting for a very pleasant gourmet evening, 'Madam', was the consummate professional maitre d' who effortlessly ensured that all guests had a memorable eating experience.

A 'must'-go-to when in Le Touquet. And good value too!

“A bit of a mixed bag”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

We went for an evening meal during a short break, didn't think much of the amuse bouche which tasted a bit bland, my starter gravadlax with rocket had so much rock salt in it, it was almost indelible, my wife's melon pate was tasteless again with over salted ham, my main course, salmon with pasta and a cream sauce was better but there wasn't enough sauce, my wife's steak and potatoes was nice and cooked well, the tarte tatin was excellent. The bill for three people came to €125 including wine. Overall I thought that the chef needs to taste his food more often and not just assume it tastes ok. A bit overpriced but that goes for the whole of Le Touquet

“Annual visit never miss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

Perfect French restaurant great value menus and if you stick to good quality carafes of wine it's even better. One of the most endearing features is being ticked off for over tipping when we tried to add 10 percent. Only half taken. We go as a small group every year in July and look forward to going again we do enjoy food and wine. This is a family restaurant who go out of their way to help us understand what we nearly understand
