We went to Boulogne on a day trip. We only had 4 hours to spend there, so we went straight up to the charming Old Town for a walk and drinks in the tiny Vole Bar. Then we turned our attention to lunch. So many restaurants in the Rue de Lille to choose from, including a Lebanese one. In the... More

Set in the tranquil setting of the old walled town Le Swan is a family run restaurant that is welcoming, has an extensive menu and a lovely ambience. We visited at lunch time when it was very quiet but with two floors one can imagine it can be a busy and popular restaurant. Fish choices and shell fish ample. Food... More

Visited this excellent restaurant on 31 March 2017 on an overnight stay in Boulogne. The owner was happy for us to bring our dog to the restaurant and they were really friendly and kind with their service. We had prawns with a lobster sauce and stuffed mushrooms to start followed by steak for mains. A cheese platter and a tarte... More

We ate here twice on a recent visit to Boulogne. On both occasions, the restaurant was busy and not all the guests were tourists! We had a warm welcome and the service was prompt (but not rushed) and friendly. There are a number of set-price menus to choose from, both comprising basic French cuisine. The wine list is adequate -... More

We ate here twice in 4 days during our recent trip to France. The same lady served us both times and was great; she was friendly and helpful. The food was fabulous, loads of choice - both al la carte and fixed price menus. The restaurant is situated in the old part of Boulogne, down a cobbled street below the... More

We were making a short visit to France and had stopped overnight in Boulogne near the Basilica in the old part of town. There are many restaurants to choose from and we have now eaten twice in Le Swan. Friendly welcome and English is spoken if needed. Comprehensive menu and reasonably priced. Service is very good, attentive but not rushed... More

Very good service and nice atmosphere. Couldn't have asked for better service and a very friendly waitress. We would put this on top of our list for the area.

At the end of a cold stroll down the cobbled street of old Boulogne, we discovered the Christmas Market was conspicuous by its absence! Well, it was only 3rd December! So, we returned back up the street in search of a good restaurant. And we found one - Le Swan! We were welcomed at the door by a smiley, happy... More

Spent a lazy 4 hour dinner on Saturday night with 3 friends and had a wonderful time. The waitress was like a whirlwind serving us and very friendly. Food was lovely and the ambience was relaxed.

Having gained entrance to this cosy looking restaurant this time (first time early closing) we weren't disappointed. We were welcomed warmly by the "waitress" who made us feel very comfortable. The service, selection and quality of food was to a very high standard. We were the for 3 hours for lunch which was perfect for our requirements.
