Traditional local bar with two restaurant rooms at the back. Restaurant has been bizarrely modernised creating a clash between the traditional and super-groovy. Good menu and wine list. Fairly good service. Always enjoyable.

If you love your mussels then (I'm told) this is the best place in town. On the edge of the town square, a good food venue famous for their mussels. Not a mussel eater myself I have their lamb dish (which was a little disappointing.) Good and friendly service and a nice ambience

Ate here for the first time yesterday. Sat outside overlooking the square. Restaurant very busy but managed to accommodate my wife and I for sunday lunch. Good selection on the menu including the 70+ range of beers available. Meal beautifully presented, my wife's fish salad in particular was very appetising. For me the Poire Belle Helene was very appealing. My... More

Had a fantastic meal here on a recent holiday. Started with an aperitif which was accompanied by complimentary salted peanuts and olives. Very nice way to peruse the menu. My husband wanted the lamb but unfortunately they didn't have any left that evening. He opted for the duck and was not disappointed. I had the mussels with blue cheese and... More

We had both dinner and lunch at this brasserie while staying in Le Touquet. there are many good places in Le Touquet, but the service, location and atmosphere of Au Vieux Port is typically French no nonsense. Efficient service. More attention to beer than wine. Excellent value for money with regard to both food and drinks. Best is to make... More

After three uncomfortable nights in a tiny bedroom without air con in Epernay, my partner and I escaped to Etaples and were delighted to get a table at this highly regarded brasserie without problem on a Thursday night. The décor, inside or out, is nothing to shout about, perhaps a little dated if anything. Our first choice of menu item... More
