Looking For Somewhere To Dine On Your Day Trip To Boulogne
If you find yourself looking for a place to eat in Boulogne try the old town. The streets around the cathedral have at least half a dozen mid-priced French restaurants open in high season as well as several bars. The rue de Lille is the home to several eateries serving typical bistro style French food. They are mostly small, family run concerns of which La Poivrière (the pepper pot) is a typical example.
In warm weather the restaurant can accommodate 40 diners, about half inside and 20 or so covers under an awning on the pedestrianised street to the front. The restaurant offers set and a la carte menus although certain dishes are only available at the busiest times (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
La Poivrière serves many traditional French favorites like; Onion and Fish Soup, Mussels. Goats Cheese; supplemented by several Beef, Lamb and Fish dishes. The food was really quite good and the service efficient and charming. A three course meal for two with wine will (at the time of writing) cost between €50 and €80. The cost is on a par with similar restaurants in the town but a little more than you are likely to pay as soon as you go a few miles inland. It's worth giving particular attention to the wine list as you might find certain wines much pricier than you'd expect.
This part of Boulogne does attract a great many British tourists so it would be unrealistic to expect an 'authentic' French experience. However you can expect a good French meal at a fair price in pleasant surroundings.
