Set a short distance away from the main shopping street, this little restaurant is a gorgeous little find. It only has about 6 or 7 tables, and the chef not only cooks the food but is also the waiter and sommelier. But boy is his food good: tasty and simple. He comes from the Ardeche region and his food is mostly of that influence. It's also incredibly good value: we, a family of 4, ate Saturday lunch for about €70. Highly recommended.

This small but immaculately put together restaurant seems to be completely run by it's chef patron. He worked both front of house and kitchens single handed and is able to maintain keeness passion and drive to get it all right. He has only a few tables and maintains a manageable menu. He was able to explain the full menu in both French and English and the food did not disappoint. Some quirky choices that worked very well and all prepared and served to perfection. Probably worthwhile filling up on starters and main courses and maybe sticking to cheeses afterwards as his deserts were not quite as good as what came before them. Excellent value for money.

We had a day trip to France for pre- christmas shopping.
Booked this restaurant having researched on trip advisor.
It did not disappoint - tucked down a side street off the main drag of off the square in St Omer ! Limited choice but all freshly cooked and lovely rustic dishes in an intimate small restaurant.
we loved all the food we had and at a very reasonable price!
If you are looking for traditional and unpretentious and typically regional cuisine come to Le Sept de Coeur - you wont be disappointed :)

Was first recommended to us by owner of a local cheese shop. Went there yesterday for lunch after lively & hot Sat market, so appreciated the cool, peaceful atmosphere here. Had a great meal, very tasty & good value. Can't understand why no one else came to this little oasis! Although the only diners, we were made very welcome & not at all uncomfortable - the rooms are cosy & the owner gives friendly but unobtrusive service. Hurry along & patronise it soon - we don't want to find it closed next time we come!

A great find just off the main shopping street in St Omer. I absolutely love the regional Flemish cuisine but it is great to find such a nice place for a change. Clearly the local population agree as it was well patronised when we are there.

The decor is in the style of the South. Although the restaurant is small there is plenty of room between tables. The menu on a chalk board was not extensive but there was plenty to choose from especially for lunch. There was an excellent wine list as well. The food which was cooked and served by the chef-owner was really excellent. It was exceptional value for money. I would recommend the set menu.

This was a great find and one that will be on our regular "must visit" list from now on.
