The freshest fish meals by far!! This place looks a little uninviting from the outside, not sure that the name helps either?, but don't be put off, it's a fishmongers and a restaurant all in one, so guaranteed to be great. They proved their worth...More

This place looked the business. A fish shop at one side, a fishermen's co-op(?) restaurant the other. And packed with locals (or at least French tourists) at 12.15pm. Sadly the fish soup I had was just poor - I wouldn't have been happy to serve...More

On the quai of St Vaast, you will find this restaurant as the best offer for seafood. As you may expect 'huitres' as fresh as you can get for little money

Our first visit to St Vaast did not disappoint. The best oysters, of course, but also a friendly welcome and good service at the Tomahawk. It's a pretty, unspoilt little place and the mariners chapel just round the corner with its memorials to brave sailors...More

Next door to their fishmonger this modest restaurant serves delicious fresh see food, very type of fish, and of course local oysters.Located on the quay side and not too expensive, a visit is certainly recommended.

We were guided here by our Hotel and were not disappointed as they run their own fishing boat and sell fresh next door! We both had some excellent sea food and can recommend it.
