As hadn’t booked, was slightly embarrassed to be placed upstairs in solitary splendour, but Mme unfussed. Excellent fish soup, with all the trimmings, followed by mixed fish grill – rather too much for me – and then beautifully presented plate of four sorbets. With kir,...More

Although Le Doyen is but a stone's throw from the Place Dalton it is down a small side street, so most of the tourist traffic passes it by. We did take the precaution of booking - a necessity as even on a mid-week lunchtime it...More

Small but traditional restaurant. Full on a wet windy February night. Food is first class, all fresh local produce. We had the 3 course 20-50 euro menu. Superb. 1 tip- book or you may be disappointed

This was our 2nd visit having been just over a year ago. Sometimes a mistake to revisit and this time it was. The meal was average, the price was above average and the service was less than average. Such a shame.

Le Doyen is a very small restaurant, so we were lucky they had table for us. We did choose it from all the recommendations here, and they were true: Dining at Le Doyen is just excellent, with a very friendly, personal service. I'll be back!

Found this great little restaurant by chance. There were 6 of us and we got a table upstairs. Very French and quaint with many locals eating here too. Lots of different set price menus which seemed confusing. We all enjoyed our 3 courses. Mussels were...More

I visit Boulogne a lot and have tried others places in Boulogne but for really top seafood I always find Le Doyen cannot be surpassed.
