Our group of four went one Friday evening in September looking for a light evening meal as we had eaten a large lunch. I am glad we booked because by 8pm the covered terrasse was full of French people and there was a good atmosphere. Inside, where the diners shared space with the counters of the fish shop the there was still a bit of room .
The waitress was friendly and helpfull . We ordered prawns and langoustines to start .The prawns were really sweet although the langoustines were a bit lacking in flavour. One of the party ordrered the fish and chips which comprised of two decent pieces of fish in a crisp crumb coating and a decent portion of chips and he declared that he was happy with his choice. Another member of the party had a simple moules frites which was very good.
The two remaining members of the party, including myself, went for the fish soup with the croutons gruyere and rouille. I have to admit to having a thing about fish soup and order it whenever I am near the coast in France. In this case the flavour was deep, the rouille was piquant but the soup was lukewarm, which really defeats the object of fish soup.
It has to be said though that the locals eating around us seemed happy with their food and the fish coming off the grill looked really good. So if you are in St Vaast, The Criee du Tomahawk is certainly worth trying and if you go I would suggest booking a place on the terrasse.
