If Le Touquet is the shining crown of northern france beach escapes (which it is), Perard restaurant is the diamond in that crown. The famous shop, which has been there for decades, specialises in fresh seafood and produces a renowned soup that is for sale all over the world. When I was here my friend and I ordered a seafood boat to share - out came a huge platter, shaped like a ship, filled with ice and stuffed to brimming with prawns, lobster, mussels, oysters, crabs and crayfish. We couldn't see each otehr over the top! And from what I remember it was extremely good value - just imagine what you would pay for that here (in this island nation, never understood why our seafood is so dear); well, I think we paid the equivalent of £20. Nummy.
The fish soup here is amazing and it's worth visiting just for this. They give you unlimited refills too so you actually could live off this place!
The main courses we had were fish dishes (it's a seafood restaurant in a seaside town) and although good, weren't as good as the fish in other places we ate at in nearby towns.
But then we had dessert... AMAZING fromage blanc mousse on a bed of berries! Yummy tummy!
It gets busy here at lunchtimes so you need to book in advance or come back closer to 2pm and queue, but if you're in Le Touquet this is a lovely place to eat :)
