    If we're there Friday night it has to be pizza from the van in the square. All pizzas made to order in a wood fired oven. Other than that we haven't eaten at Gravelines.

    Very rarely 'eat out' .. much prefer home cooked and if possible on the BBQ .. exception being a good fish supper or a pizza..


    last night of our trip this year at Gravelines..

    We've not eaten out there although have stayed a few times. The town looks to have a nice selection of cafes and restaurants though.

    Ate out at one of the restaurants in the square, on the right as you face the town hall, can't remember the name of it but the local band were playing and all decamped there once they'd finished, I would use it again. Had a strange kebab from a place at the back of the square, it came with donner meat and chips inside the pitta :eek: The fish place, Compass maybe ? across the marina has had good reviews on here before but we haven't tried it yet.

    Cap compass , if you are facing the water, walk to your left past the bus stops, go to the bridge turn round it and just up the road, excellent, been loads , cooks on open stove in the restaurant, tell him how you want it cooking or he might get a bit heavy on the salt;)
    Also if you just want some chips , there's a place that's only just opened, just past the bus stops, very good.
    By the way au cap compass isn't just fish , do very good steak and chicken

    Hotel in the square has always been good. Eat in or out.

    Just remembered, had a seafood meal at Hotel L'Alexander, right down by the beach by Rue de la Mer and I got a lovely dose of food poisoning a couple of years back. Was too ill to move, although Val was doing all the driving. Was really pleased I'd emptied the cassette just before we crossed, was brim full before I even felt like driving to the service point :sick:

    What's strange about that apart from missing the salad inside as well.:)

    They are strange meals, some come on a plate wrapped in foil, but you only need one between two of you.

    Last time we were at Gravelines the old square inside the walls looked dead as the proverbial doornail, so we hiked a mile up to the seafront (easily accessible on bikes too) and ate at Le Palm Beach where at least there were other human beings visible. We were happy with the food. Quite a few other places to choose from up there too.
