We came in with 5 people without reservations, on a saturday around 12h30. Restaurant has nice atmosphere, with correct service and good food for a competetive price. Enjoyed it !!

We have often eaten at Le Cygne and once since the management changed recently, but our lunch this week was exceptional even by their high standards. Traffic and the ferry crossing meant that we were almost an hour late - and we did not arrive for the lunch until 2pm. They were quite clear on the phone that we cold... More

We have been eating here for many years and whilst the approach of the new owners is slightly different to that of the previous management, the quality and ambiance of the restaurant is still excellent. We booked into le Cygne for 8:30 and found the place already buzzing. We chose the 'avec boissons' offer and the wine provision was well... More

Perhaps we were not wise to choose a Saturday before Xmas as service was very slow but the food more than made the wait worthwhile . Excellent value for money and we will be back

Stumbled across this place half an hour from the cross-channel tunnel and it was a find. Have had a lot of disappointing meals in France over recent years (they used to be so good but have stagnated a bit) but this was great. My partner's vegetarian so was encouraged in by a menu that said there were vegetarian options, though... More

As a vegetarian I never expect too much from French restaurants, especially if we have not researched or booked ahead. However, the meal that I had here with my partner last Tuesday was exceptional. We stumbled upon Restaurant Le Cygne when on a day trip to Calais. Neighbours had suggested St Omer for a lunch location, but commitments prior to... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch the other day, after not having been here for a year or two and found it to be just as good,if not better than we remembered. The standard menu is now supplemented with specials for each course, which seemed to fit nicely with the season and used fresh available produce. The food was excellent,... More
