Very nice oldy worldy building. Menu not too extensive, but reasonable value. Our lunchtime menu was excellent except for the starter. Ficelle Picard is a regional speciality, but my crepe had been cooked from frozen and was lukewarm in the middle and a bit burnt on the outside. Normally there is a cheese sauce with grated cheese, but mine was... More

Our favourite lunch stop when heading north through France. The lunch menu Monday thro Friday is very good value, choice and style first class. Saturday the menu goes up to 25 Euro but provides six different delicious courses counting the sorbet etc.

Had a superb wedding anniversary meal. Relaxed atmosphere, the waiter spoke Good English which was very helpful. 2 of the waitresses didn't and they came over as being a little cold I think because of it. Food was excellent with decent sized quantities, the amuse bouche added to the experience. Not cheap but we'll worth it.

The restaurant was in easy walking distance from our hotel (Mercure Abbeville Centre ). It was a Tuesday evening and we hadn't booked but they found us a table ok. We picked the 37 euro menu. We both had the pate de foie gras to start, then I had the veal and my husband had the duck. We both finished... More

Last dinner in France and all looks well from the outside so we were heartened. The menu sounded fantastic with kidney, sweetbreads and foie gras but the realism of the stayed and ordinary cooking turned our initial enthusiasm into a disappointed reality. The cooking is unaccomplished and when chefs cannot cook duck breast without turning into a dry, shoe leather... More

Came to dine on the recommendation of someone and was not disappointed, the service was good, the language barrier being overcome and the service was timely, professional and the food of good quality. I in turn would recommend this eatery.

After reading good reviews on Tripadvisor rating this as the 2nd best restaurant in Abbeyville, we decided to take a look. After seeing the gorgeous building and excellent varied menus we popped inside at 5pm and booked a table for 3 at 7pm We all chose the most reasonable menu (25€) and all had a wonderful meal. The ficelle picardie... More

Description
En route for Calais our Coach Driver stopped for lunch in Abbeville. A local Charcuterie recommended this restaurant as the place to have an excellent lunch. Certainly a great find, 3 courses for 13Euro. Certainly nowhere in the UK I know could match this place for price & QUALITY. Place was crowded however service was swift. I guess that we were the only non-French in this establishment. Worth a detour from the Motorway.Liked: Food, Service, Atmosphere, Value
