Next time you visit spend a few euros and dine at the "France and Fuschia", you tight sods!!!
JK can you please delete this post from this thread cos not relevant to our cruise

many thanks

I thought light hearted advice about places to go when Ribing was what this forum was about.

At least the advice was relevant to where you went and not on a completely different subject as some threads are !

As a yearly visitor to St Vaast I would also suggest that Cafe Du Port does a fine meal for a few euros. JK can verify that !!!

Cheers

Mark

With all your respect you are missing the point

I did not mention this in my post but we ate at the Le Channel Pub by the waterfront and as a yearly visitor you most probably have seen this fine establishment.

I highly recommend it when you go there next

Sorry Andre, but the post stays. Don't take offence at "Dirk Diggler", I'm sure he means well

Anyway, having been to St Vaast a few times I can definitely recommend the Resturant des Fuschsias for a top notch meal. The Cafe Du Port is OK, but not in the same league.

I haven't eaten at Le Channel Pub so can't comment about the food there (from what I remember they keep on serving beer until very late though!)

How about a new topic on "Places to Eat" where members can air their views on the merits (or not) of the various establishments.

Keith could be sub-moderator/chief tester

Good idea Peter

This is the Le Channel Pub and how about the portion of mussels for size. Nice weather so we ate outside.

Could not stay there very long cos time was pressing as with the tide going out we had to make it before the lock closed.
We did not want to get caught inside

I see that you went for the starter portion then and not the main course

I will start a new thread later to-day on Places To Eat
