What an enjoyable evening. We'd booked for an hour later but were pasing so nipped in to ask if we could start earlier. Absolutely no problem.Once inside, it's a quirky journey,with old fashioned toys to entertain and the menus concealed in fascinating old magazines. There were only 4 tables when we were there and a single sitting so no rush and no crowding. The front of house and cooking are all the same person and he manages a warm welcome, conversation and first rate food. Fresh food, freshly and beautifully cooked without pretence. It was a good job we started early as we left quite late! You do need to book in advance but you won't regret it.

We walked in without a reservation and were lucky to get a table. We had starters, main meals and desert with all the food being delicious, fresh and local. We would visit again given the chance and would reccomend to friends and family.

My partner and I have visited St Omer on a few occasion and have found all the restaurants of a very high standard. This time we looked for a traditional cosy place to eat...and this place ticked all the boxes. The restaurant itself seats about 8-10 people comfortably...it had a quirky antique ambiance...the owner/chef was exceptionally friendly and very informative about what was on the menu...there were a few starters..and mains..but this reflected in the quality and taste of each course...I had an amazing starter chefs own, of sweet muscles in herbs..delicious...my partner had citrus tomato soup..all served with homemade bread...the main was fresh and cooked perfectly...I had fish my partner chicken..with an locally sourced vegetables... yum..dessert was creamy and delightful...I would thoroughly recommend a visit here if quaint, quirky and traditional French food is what you are looking for...we will certainly go again...

We stumbled across this small Resturant in the side streets of St Omer just off the centre. What a joy, in every way. The food was absolutely delightful as was the ambience and the chef-patron. His English was excellent which is good for us as our French is poor to moderate! He allowed our large but well behaved dog in to sit under the table and he was entirely accommodating about my being veggitatian/pescatarian. We had cheese tartlet, soup, cod in sauce, chicken and the mussels. A most excellent white wine and a local ale. Will definitely be back to cheer ourselves on our annual trip from the Peloponnese to Northern England!
