Who are we?

We are a collection of like-minded shopkeepers, hoteliers, restauranteurs and chefs who live and work in and around the historic, gastronomic and bucolic town of Montreuil-Sur-Mer.
We are not professional food critics, but know what we like, and appreciate the efforts of our unique community to make Montreuil such a culinary hotspot. We make no apologies for our ‘over-the-top’ language we may use as we guide you through our tried and tested favourite spots.
We hope you enjoy exploring La Destination Gastronomique as much as we have…

From an idea by...
