A great place to eat, drink and be merry

I love to spend time in the old town (Haute Ville) of Boulogne, wandering its cobbled streets, ahving a meal in one of the many restaurants or a drink in our favourite bar, The Vole Hole

    Le Bon Accuiel restaurant, rue de Lille, 62200 Boulogne sur Mer, has for some years now been called La Petite Auberge, and is owned and run by a delightful lady named Jo; the food is all cooked by her, and she makes the chips wth real potatoes!

    Grets, In the end we tried a different restaurant in the old Town - Le Swan. Many thanks for your advice and other tips. We had a terrific day out. Mike

    Good page! I've never been there yet. I also hate dog droppings and especially the dog owners!
