Eating Out in Boulogne

Boulogne has a pleasing range of restaurants, pubs and eateries. Some of the best are, unsurprisingly, seafood restaurants. You’ll find the best of these either in the old town, especially in and around Rue de Lille, and in the town centre especially in and around Place Dalton.
