“Great location, disappointing and way overpriced food...”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Went there on a Saturday night with quite a few friends, so that this review deals with a fair portion of their menu. Had been there a few years back for a lunch outside, had thought the food was ok, though slightly overpriced. The quality of the food has gone down, unlike the prices.
Started off with a house cocktail which was nice but 9€ for a 10cl cocktail is really pushing it à lot. Some of us went for thé mussels as à main course, typical dish around there. What we ended up with was half the amount of mussels we would get anywhere else for twice thé price. The other dishes ordered gave us the same impression: tiny, unoriginal, lacking in flavour and very pricey indeed. The fact that they also forgot a burger (arrived 20min later than all thé other dishes, undercooked, with apologies but without any sort of compensation) didn't help.
Would go there for a beer outside if the weather allows it.
Will never return for dinner as long as I can avoid it.
Extra point: they heavily highlight the fact that the chocolate mousse is homemade, which means that all thé other desserts clearly arent...

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I see from reading other reviews that they are very mixed, however we had a really nice meal here and found all the staff to be really friendly and helpful.
We also thought it was very reasonably priced compared to alot of restaurants in Le Touquet.
We would definitely go here again.

“A good brasserie”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Always open, always welcoming, Le Paris Plage is a good brasserie providing traditional French fare. The plat de jour was a Brandade de morue baked in a Staab cast iron dish which arrived piping hot and stayed that way as we whiled away the hour. So tasty,and the waiter explained how it was made when when we made enquiries. Salt cod is not an everyday food in Britain and I have always wanted to try it in a hot dish. The accompaniment was a very good mixed salad and ,of course, bread and butter.The café gourmand was quite rich but, so what! December in Le Touquet demands hearty food.Two courses about 14 euros.There is a good mixed menu from traditional french dishes, pizzas, salads and pastas. Something for everyone. If you are brave, the terrace is heated.

“Looks better than it is”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here for drinks one rainy afternoon in Le Touquet. We have walked past many times on previous visits and the outdoor terrace is always busy so assumed it was good.

Our order was taken fast enough and the drinks were brought over. The waiter wasn't particularly friendly. I asked for the bill and put the cash down. We waited for our change for over 10 minutes. The waiter was well aware that we were sitting at an empty table waiting and attempting to make eye contact but he kept talking to other staff and eating. Eventually, one of us went and asked and he took the saucer with my change off the side and gave it to us. I think he was hoping we would not ask but as service is included in the tax you pay and he wasn't very good, he certainly would not have been tipped extra.

Not impressed and won't go back.
