“One of the Best”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is one of our favourite classic restaurants that demonstrates French gastronomy at its best with friendly staff, comfortable surroundings and some of the most innovative puddings east of the Fat Duck! It's worth deviating from the motorway to Calais to eat here. We try to visit about 3 times a year.

“Worth visiting”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

Le Cynge simply gets it right
The food is wonderful. With a menu focussed upon seafood, foie grasse, beef and venison - it may not be to everyone's taste, however the dessert menu ensures that no-one will go home unhappy nor dissatisfied
Unlike some other restaurants, Le Cynge has more than sufficient staff keeping an eye on things front of house - who whilst being discrete, are always a moment away
For the diners in our party who were not as comfortable speaking French, the staff made an effort and always seemed obliging and happy to help
The decor is stylish with contempory art, gentle modern music and comfortable seating - with sufficient space between tables, the lighting is sufficient for some people watching between courses
We booked a table for the Saturday evening (seemingly worth while as they were full) and left after nearly four hours
Le Cynge is not a cheap option but we will be returning

“Still excellent”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We have been coming to this restaurant for 20 years and have never been disappointed! Superb food, good quality wines, lovely ambiance and great service. We wish there was a restaurant with this quality and prices near where we live in the UK. There is a selection of different price menus. There is a lunchtime menu which is excellent value at 20 euros for 3 courses and 17 euros for 2, with the "menu ardoise" offering additional dishes to the normal set menu, and you still get all the nice touches even if you are having this. We had a great meal with amuse-bouches, three courses, a bottle of wine and coffee and petit fours for 66 euros. A wonderful venue for lunch or dinner.

“Superb dinner - perfect for last night in France”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We enjoyed a superb dinner here - classic French cuisine served in an elegant dining room. Service is extremely efficient, friendly and competent. Every dish was a delight and the entire dining experience left us sorry to be leaving France to return home to England the following day. Highly recommended.
