A great little place. Olivier runs everything, and can speak English just fine. Nice short menu, and excellent food. A most enjoyable visit. Clever stuff and reading matter all around, too. Well done that man!

Just a one night stay in St Omer with friends to do the usual stock up of great food and drink for Christmas. Was looking for a good restaurant with traditional french artisan cooking and found this one on TripAdvisor. This restaurant is quite amazing. It only has about 14/16 covers and Olivier the owner/chef/maitre de does it all on... More

Delicious food, great wine and lovely, friendly chef-patron. Couldn't fault it. Authentic regional food, with seasonal ingredients from the market. Had a wonderful evening and will be back!

The threshold at 10 Rue Sainte-Croix is not just a transition from a chilly November evening into a warm, quaint dining room. It is also a step back in time. Back to a time when service was not a commodity but a pleasure. The Chef - Patron is the definition of geniality (a French word….), relaxed charming and intent on... More

Arranging dinner Chez Tante Fauvette is like having dinner with a French friend. Olivier is the owner, is also the cook, the waiter and the entertainer - he speaks very good English in between serving and cooking. The food is authentic and local. Clearly he can't be serving many guests (at most 12 to 16) so it is best to... More

We went there with my soon-to-be in-laws family and we had such a great time. It felt like travelling through time and being sent to the beginning of the previous century. The menu is renewed every week, maybe not many choices, but everything looks great. I personally had"oeuf cocotte", and it was amazing. This was followed by the museum cooked... More

Can't praise this place enough. My wife and I have just spent a very pleasant evening with Olivier. He's a great character, a great host and a great Chef (even told me how to cook my egg starter).

Found by accident but had probably one of our best meals....mussels cooled in honey and cod with rhubarb. Absolutely brilliant, the chef is the waiter, entertainment and chef who also speaks very good English. The menu was varied and I chose the mussels and the cod. It's always good to try something you haven't had before and mussels in honey... More

Arrived in Saint Omer on our way home from a trip across France. We'd stayed and eaten in some amazing places so we thought it was going to be difficult to find a fitting finale to our holiday. How wrong we were! Many eateries were closed but we hunted this resteraunt following picking up the reviews on Tripadvisor. We found... More
