Le Doyen is a very small restaurant, so we were lucky they had table for us. We did choose it from all the recommendations here, and they were true: Dining at Le Doyen is just excellent, with a very friendly, personal service. I'll be back!

Found this great little restaurant by chance. There were 6 of us and we got a table upstairs. Very French and quaint with many locals eating here too. Lots of different set price menus which seemed confusing. We all enjoyed our 3 courses. Mussels were lovely, dish of the day (lemon sole) was delicious and profiteroles very chocolatey! House wine...

I visit Boulogne a lot and have tried others places in Boulogne but for really top seafood I always find Le Doyen cannot be surpassed.

I wanted to go to this restaurant after reading the reviews on TA. We walked right by the alley where it is located, it is a tiny alley. The night we went it was cold but they had a heater going. It was very small but the reception was very nice and we were very comfortable. I started with a... More

The menu at 20 euros was amazing value. For starters, the salade de chevre chaud and the terrine were enormous. In the mains the three types of fish, the pasta and the dish of the day were hugely generous. The food was cooked in a typically French style and service was efficient. By the time we hit dessert, I wished... More

We visited this restaurant last Saturday evening with two friends. Whilst the food was ok the service provided by the lone and grumpy waitress was not. We had expected a convivial atmosphere but instead was "greeted" in an offhanded manner. Furthermore, as we left the restaurant (after leaving a cash payment plus a tip on the table) the waitress confronted... More

Very good value classic French bistro food. We enjoyed great steaks with dauphinoise, and an excellent pear tart. Also perfectly decent rose by the carafe. Place was small but buzzing with people. Solitary waitress did a fantastic job keeping everyone happy.

Easy to miss, this is a great little restaurant, which serves good food at a great price. It was my first stop when visiting this year, and I will certainly be going back.
