We have been on a two day cycle ride around Saint Omer and Ypres and decided we really deserved a good meal on our last night. We choose this restaurant based on the feedback on TripAdvisor and we were so pleased we did.

The front of house service was impeccable from the moment we arrived where they knew exactly who we were (how did they do that!), to the recommendations of wine (sweet wine with foie gras was genius) and the steak was perfect.

All food sources locally which is great to see. Try the bread, oh wow it's sooo good.

I can not fault the evening and felt totally at ease and not rushed at all.

If you like great food, wine and service this is your place to go.

Easter Friday arrived Saint-Omer early evening. Aperitif in town Square then off to restaurant. Received by delightful host and shown to table booked from UK. A party of four we all choose from set 3 course menu at 21 euro. Presented with Amuse bouche one for 2 of the party different for those with dairy allergy, a taste of things to come all entrees mains and deserts were excellent and served at a delightful pace and with full explanation really very very good no hesitation in recommended it to all. Food and staff were so good we left a generous tip which staff hesitated before accepting.

Having made a reservation with la Belle Époque for the evening. Only to find that they had 3 steaks and 1 duck choices on the menu my partner emailed to ask if it would be possible to have chicken for myself ( I dont like the other choices ) . When we got a reply , sorry but no !!! We looked around for somewhere else to dine out .
WE ARE SO GLAD WE DID . There wasn't a chicken dish on the menu we chose either but without hesitation agreed I could have chicken risotto. From our very first steps inside to our goodbye we could not fault the place. Service, food , wine and ambiance were top quality . Thanks so much to the lovely young guys who looked after our every need . We will certainly return . Sorry La Belle Époque you have lost a customer

We took advantage of a Chanel tunnel offer for a day trip to France and decided on Saint Omer for a visit.
Au Bistronome was pre booked on the back of its reviews and location. We were a bit early and there was just one other diner but within the next half hour the restaurant was 90% full of mainly French customers. It was obvious that the locals knew what they were about. The food was delicious, freshly cooked and well presented the waiter helpfully explaining things on the menu that our rudimentary French couldn't cope with.
Au Bistronome was the icing on the cake as far as our vist to Saint Omer was concerned and we will be returning.
As I said the food is freshly cooked so don't expect to rush through the meal and it isn't the cheapest but it is value for money. If you want something cheap and fast there's always Burger King at the tunnel.

Instantly took a liking for the setting of old black and white pics in a red and black painted interior. Good choice of wines, some fantastic dishes. The 3 way scallops and the pancake Suzette are highly recommended. Great value for money. And thanks again for the hospitality.
