France is renowned for the quality of its restaurant and for the whole social experience of eating out. Montreuil and the surrounding region is no exception to this with some great places to choose from, ranging from small intimate cafés to larger more established restaurants. If you want to spoil yourselves you could book a table at the Michelin starred Auberge de la Grenouilliere in the nearby village of La Madeleine-sous-Montreuil but be sure that no matter where you decide to eat you give yourself enough time to sit back and enjoy the whole event and saviour every course.
In Montreuil itself you can choose between a good number of restaurants that offer a varied selection of traditional dishes but the one thing they do have in common is that you can rely on local produce being used, such as ‘pre sale lamb’ which is lamb reared on the salt marshes from the Somme Estuary, or the local type of sausage from Montreuil known as the Andouille.
If you want to sample other culinary delights you could visit some of the villages in the area or even travel to nearby resorts such as Le Touquet where you will find a number of speciality restaurants to enjoy.
