Probably the best place to eat adviced by the locals. I can confirm this. The fish entree course is exquisite as well as the fish of the day I took. I paid more or less €30 for an entree, main and dessert course. Good value...More

This restaurant is still the best in Saint Vaast in our opinion. We had a great evening meal there on 11 November and would recommend it to anyone visiting this beautiful little fishing village

A friendly & inviting restaurant with wonderful food & wine ! The portions were excellent and the moules, almost certainly, were amongst the best I`ve ever eaten.

Again we chose it as it was number 1 on TA. Initially it looked good as they squeezed us in when very busy. Starters were excellent - main courses ok - but service infrequent and indifferent.

Are dogs accepted in the restaurant?

Response from Dovinesque | Reviewed this property |
As it's France dogs are usually accepted, especially if they're small. I'd check first just to be sure.If not you could tie it up in easy view just outside.

Suggest you ask the restaurant, i.e. call them. Not sure why you would think that a reviewer would know that kind of detail! Good luck.
