We've enjoyed lunch at this elegant restaurant twice during recent trips to St Omer, the quality of the food and the bargain price of the lunch menu is a definite attraction. It's obviously a well-established operation which doesn't rely on passing trade to fill tables,...More

Closed Monday to my recollection, as are many French establishments. I don't think Gluten Free features on the menu , but it may be worth e.mailing, via their web site. The new management may have included this in an update.
