We stayed in Boulogne in October in an apartment close to this bar. Owner was very helpful and friendly to us as our French is not very good. Bar is very cosy and everyone was so welcoming.

This is a small wine bar inside the old village walls of the haute village of Boulogne sur mer and has a great atmosphere. Fantastic place to come for a drink. This is a very small establishment.
