In a bleak February day we were on a Eurotunnel day trip and drove down to Wimereaux intending to take lunch in La Liegeois but unfortunately it was closed for February and we instead opted for the Cap Nord restaurant on the seafront.

We were welcomed, seated and, after a drink, decided to order lunch. It was delicious and what was even better was that we were encouraged to mix-and-match the set menu with the day's specialities. The staff were welcoming, good humoured and attentive, perfectly happy to allow us to try our French but willing to step in with their English if we appeared to be floundering. All very relaxing.

The food was very good with a selection we did not expect to be available in a quiet seaside town in February. This bias is towards fish (unsurprisingly) but two of our party took the beef and found it delicious. My fish could not have been fresher.

The meal was reasonably priced and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

We found ourselves walking along the Wimereux ‘prom’ last Monday morning, a wet and dreary day, looking for a place to have a coffee before driving on up the coast to Calais. Came across Cap Nord which was the only place open but had very few visitors. After having a coffee we decided to take a look at the menu – then we transferred from the cafe side to the restaurant to have lunch. The waiter was enthusiastic and pleased to assist, seating us at the window so we had a sea view. Both ordered Onglet which, as always in France, was cooked as it should be, with a carafe of patron Vin Rouge – very drinkable. After eating, the weather had improved, and indeed so had our mood, and it did not go unnoticed that the brasserie was almost full. All reasonably price and the coffee was excellent.

Cap Nord was nearly empty even though every other resto in town was "complet". This made us suspicious, but we should not have worried. Attentive service, decent food, good portions and reasonably priced. Although we didn't need any help, the staff were very happy to speak English.

My wife and I ate at Le Cap Nord in October 2013. We called in en route to Le Touquet specifically for the moules at lunchtime and they were really excellent - I personally had the Moules Roquefort which I had not come across previously and they were excellent! The weather was blustery but we had a sheltered table outdoors and eating moules beside the sea was a great start to our break! I would certainly recommend the Cap Nord and would go again.
