We've been coming to this restaurant for a number of years. It is always excellent. Fish is the main menu but there's a great selection and variety of menus at a range of prices. We'll be back again!

Au Cote d'Argent restaurant right on the water at Calais faces the seawall with fascinating views of the watery parade of sea ferries churning in and out. The dining room puts you in the mood for excellent seafood, with varnished wood-panelled walls, marine blue carpeting and upholstery, nautical detailing and huge plate glass windows for viewing the waves. Chef Bertrand Lefebvre trained with some of France���s greatest chefs ��� Paul Bocuse among them ��� before opening his own restaurant here. The cuisine is simple, elegant in a selection of menus that include dishes like chicken livers saut��ed with mushrooms in sherry, fillet of red mullet with rice and shellfish with saffron or half lobster without shell but with coral sauce. The service is warm, the cooking refined and sophisticated, the wines are French and the experience a delight.
