Quai Bélu

In the Saint-Leu district on the banks of the River Somme just northeast of the Cathedral, (map), Quai Bélu between Rue de la Dodane & Boulevard du Cange is lined with café-bars and restaurants busy from morning till late at night. It's the most pleasant place in the city for a drink or a meal. Our favorite is the Restaurant Le Quai.

Place du Don/Rue des Bondés

Across the River Somme from Quai Bélu, the Place du Don and Rue des Bondés intersection spans a canal where café-bars bustle nightly with Amien's younger generations, mostly drinking, some eating, with a higher noise level.

Near the Cathedral

Beside the cathedral on Rue Cormont anre a few small bistrots with sidewalk tables and indoor dining rooms for lunch or dinner.

Rue Dusevel, west of the cathedral's parvis (forecourt), also has numerous bistrots with sidewalk seating, even more more facing the little park-and-pool at the intersection with Rue des Sergents.
