We've been meaning to eat here for years but been delayed, it's been full etc so never managed it before. So pleased we finally did. Myself & partner, Gill, arrived around 7 on a Friday & it was quiet but with a few reserved signs...More

Was walking around on a wet Tuesday in February. Really happy we found this restaurant. Wine 50cl at 8.90, set menu 21 Euro. Service and food superb. Tres Bon. Great local food. Service was very good, a little French goes a longway.

Really tiny place, just off one of the main squares in Boulogne. Only a few covers and very busy as it was Friday night. Very nice decor. Don't be put off by the seemingly gruff waitress as some have been, after all this is France...More

This place is very small and you feel a bit crowded. The lady waitress appears to be a bit miserable. I dont think we got the quality we expected for the price.

I regularly read other people's reviews, especially those whose criticism seems far-fetched and unjust. It seems to reflect upon people's perceptions based upon what they eat at home. We dined early, just after 7pm, there were four (English) diners already in situ. We were greeted...More

As hadn’t booked, was slightly embarrassed to be placed upstairs in solitary splendour, but Mme unfussed. Excellent fish soup, with all the trimmings, followed by mixed fish grill – rather too much for me – and then beautifully presented plate of four sorbets. With kir,...More

Although Le Doyen is but a stone's throw from the Place Dalton it is down a small side street, so most of the tourist traffic passes it by. We did take the precaution of booking - a necessity as even on a mid-week lunchtime it...More
