“Did we choose the wrong dishes?”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

The 2-choices daily menu was pumpkin soup or crab salad, plaice or chicken. The crab was white meat very finely shredded & mixed with a good deal of leek - lacked much crab flavour. Came surrounded by tomato juice & with a spoonful of aubergine and a streak of yellow sauce (mustard?). The plaice with rosemary sauce (thin) was beautifully cooked but lacked seasoning - plaice does need more help from the chef than most fish and though splendidly fresh it was dull to eat. Came with two kinds of (wet) courgette, a grilled mushroom, a baked tomato & a bowl of very plain pasta - all rather short on taste. The chocolate tart was excellent, sitting on red & yellow fruit coulis with a small ball of ice cream and five different pieces of fresh fruit. Freebie was slices of salami, bread light & fresh, 50cl carafe of good white wine good value. Perhaps we were unlucky in our choice of dishes but we were a bit disappointed. Our meal there some time ago was so very much better, but now we may not go again. Very friendly & good service, portions plenty. The 3 courses are good value but the carte looked a good deal dearer.

“a good last minute find”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We arrived in Wimereux with the idea of lunching in La Speranza, but it was fully booked so we wandered down the high street and chose this little restaurant as it looked jolly and full with locals. It proved an excellent choice, only a choice of two dishes for each course which means everything is fresh and was nicely cooked and presented, and good value. The atmosphere for lunch was excellent and it was nice to only hear French being spoken. Service was pleasant and efficient. All in all an excellent last meal in France.

“Delicious a second time”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

A restaurant run by 4 women who smile, serve and savour in their meals prepared by their male chef! Cosy atmosphere, good value, local produce and delicious wine!

“Excellent set menu”
Reviewed 22 July 2013 via mobile

We ate twice here while staying in the area. The service was excellent - attentive but never intrusive. The first night we had the set meal at €20 per head which was a wonderful goats cheese tart, then lemon sole then a mixture of fruit with an almond ice cream. All delicious. Good range of wines. Highly recommended!
