Le Touquet is a popular resort in the region of Pas de Calais, that is renowned for its delicious and fresh produce from both the local land and sea. Visitors can be assured that they will enjoy some real treats when it comes to the variety and selection of restaurants that are available to them. Fresh seafood is an absolute must with locally caught shellfish such as mussels regarded as a speciality in the area. Soup is also popular, as are the regional cheeses such as the mild Coeur d’Arras or the stronger Maroilles. For those with a sweet tooth macaroon, crepes and waffles serve the craving well.
Many different cultures can be sampled in the mix of eateries, Moroccan food such as that served in the ‘Marrakech’ restaurant is a particular favourite but it is the traditional French delicacies that are by far the most popular and what most visitors choose to sample.
Dining is very unpretentious and most restaurants offer a very warm and friendly welcome to everyone, however, there are a number of fine diners serving gourmet cuisines, such as the Michelin starred Pavillon at the hotel Westminster or Flavio that can be found next door, where you can choose to indulge in some exceptional food.
