This was a walk in choice and we are glad we chose it, the welcome was nice and it was quiet, we were the only customers which might put people off but we were soon joined by other diners. The wine was very good and one of us had salmon 'in all its states' whilst I had the entrecôte. Home... More

Owing to the strikes in Calais we visited Dunkirk on a short day trip instead. Found this little gem on our wonderings. Our waitress apologised that their biggest table was reserved but quickly made up one for a group of five. Our little Samuel practiced his French and the waitress was engaging and patient with him. The food was fantastic... More

Ate lunch and dinner here very friendly host and chef. Very french interior but a lot of the food was Thai. Cooked very well though. My only criticism was it took ages to get water but not wine. Perhaps just an oversight.

The last night of a father/son European road trip and wanted to finish with something stylish. I was actually after some typical French Cuisine but, on the day we were there at least, French Cuisine is off the menu in Dunkerque! La Reserve certainly looked the place to be. Visually you couldn't get more French, and the lady proprietor was... More

Despite a late arrival in Dunkerque (about 8:30pm), we could enjoy a nice diner at La Réserve. The menu is interesting and food well prepared and tasty. I will go there again!

We stopped here on our way to the Calais ferries and we found a nice place overlooking the marina. It being a Monday lunch just after end of the school holidays, the place was nicely calm and the staff very friendly. We were a bit pressed for time to not miss our ferry, so we only went for the "formule... More

Dropped in without a booking and despite my non existent French, the waiter was very accommodating and found a table in what was obviously a busy restaurant. The place itself is clean, small and quaint. Decor is modern and tastefully done. The menu is in French of course and comes to your table via an adjacent chair as it's on... More
