After a day filled with long walks along the coastline, we were happy to sit back and relax at La Chaloupe. It's a very cosy restaurant with a warm atmosphere and very hospitable staff. The food was simply perfect: all products are fresh, try one of their many fish specialties and go for a nice bottle of wine. DO NOT... More

Efficient service but not overly friendly. Limited menu but fish dishes aside from the fruits de mer and lobster which we did not have were well cooked. Good selection of wines many of which were reasonably priced. Nice decor and comfortable seats.

We went there for lunch during a road trip along the north French coast. The staff was very friendly and our little dog was very welcome as well. We had just one plate with fish which was served nice and cooked to perfection. Also our neighbors' plate, the home special with sea fruits looked delicious. Thanks to the staff for... More

This was one of our first experiences on the Cote D Opale and not one of the best. The meal served was cold and the service a bit ignorant and incredibly slow. The only thing that saved the evening was a dessert, which was kind of OK. We never tried second time, so maybe it was just a bad day... More

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the nearby Cap. The restaurant is conveniently located next to the main road. Quite some staff walking around, not super friendly but OK. Service was a bit slow at times as well. We did enjoy the food very much though; we had a very tasty fish soup 'bouillabaisse'-style. The kids enjoyed their kids menu,... More

We were looking forward to a nice dinner after a day at the beach and a bad experience in Calais. La Chalouppe welcomed us well and with a kids' menu option. The starters were good and the buillabaise very good and filling: recommended! The cod for my son very tender albeit needing some flavoring for him. Only remarks: not impressing... More

On the whole the food is good, however check the chef's interpretation of standard expressions before assuming you are on the same page. 'En croute' means encrusted in pastry or, at the most generous, covered in a crusty layer. A la chef, en croute is a quasi tapenade come bread crumb mush. This misinterpretation is expensive at the price charged.... More

I think that this was one of the worst meals I have had in France in many a long year. 3 of us went for lunch and ordered from the set menu. We all ordered the same starter which was supposedly a prawn croquette thing , it tasted of nothing and was meagre in size. Two of us ordered the... More
