This is a real discovery of a restaurant in a sleepy village. Generally excellent all round, with some very well priced set menus with excellent food. I were to raise some criticisms I would say the wine list is a little pricey and the dining room is a little cold and sparse.

A good choice of menus in a stylish setting if a litte like being inside a licorice allsort ( there was a lot of black and white and pink). While the service was good and prompt, the evening would have been enhanced by a little more attention to explanation of the food. Clearly there was good concentration in the kitchen... More

If you are in the general region of Nord-Pas-de-Calais, it is worth a trip to eat here. The restaurant is nicely decorated, with attentive service and creative dishes. There are several menus at fixed prices, or order by the plate. Fresh ingredients, nicely presented creations, and a Chef that cares about what he serves. Unlike other visitors, we found the...

Le Buffet has a very elegant restaurant where the menu is equally elegant and the service is exceptional. The set menus are imaginative, the food is beautifully presented and the little delicacies that are offered as you wait between courses are delicious! A truly fine dining experience without outrageous prices.

The restaurant is like a giant conservatory built on the rear of this converted station buffet. It is very attractive and relaxing as one looks out on to the garden and one can forget the rather industrial look of most of the town. There are several menus to choose from but we found them rather limited in choice. It was... More

Pretty, pretty food served with imagination, delicious as well. Superb choice on the wine list from all the main wine regions of France. The wine was again delicious but on the expensive side. The service was attentive but lacked warmth and welcome. From the outside this small hotel looks out of context sitting opposite the railway station and in a... More

From the outside, Le Buffet, true to its name, looks like many a train station restaurant in France, that is quite humdrum. Inside, however, it is a different story: bright rooms, tastefully (if old-fashionedly) furnished, with precious porcelain plates and high-quality stem ware. Dressed in white shirt and black trousers, I first thought I had over-dressed but was quickly proven... More

As mentioned the food is very good and certainly well up to Michelin standard. It is also excellent value for money. My wife and I paid less than fifty pounds in total ( plus drinks) for a delicious three course menu including amuse bouches etc. It is really a restaurant with rooms but the rooms are very clean and well...

On a family trip to visit the grave of a gran uncle who died in WW1 we were staying nearby and heard about this restaurant . The food was exceptional while also being amazing value. The attention to detail from the amuse bouche to the petit fours was outstanding. All the little extra morsels that delivered taste sensations was totally... More

A small group of us stopped here on the way back from the south of France as we have many times before and were not disappointed. Although not the very best meal I have ever had here, the standard was very high. It has for some years richly deserved a Michelin star. The food is very regional in style but... More
