We popped in for Sunday lunch just as we were passing. We had had no particular recommendation and didn't have a data connection to look at TripAdvisor so we just went in. The main restaurant area was completely full, but they opened the downstairs room just for us. I asked about be a vegetarian and, despite being very busy, they... More

We had dinner here on Friday. We chose the gourmet menu The amuse bouche and starters were good, but my wife's main course was not. The confit duck was undercooked and the vegetables overcooked. The desserts were ok, though my creme brulee was not freshly prepared and the choux pastry of the profiterole my wife had was hard. Overall, not... More

A friendly and busy restaurant in the middle of Calais. Good food, good service and great atmosphere. €80 for two including 3 courses and drinks.

We were the first to arrive here today for lunch as we had an early crossing back home to England so we were limited by time, and yet due to fantastic service we were still able to enjoy a delicious four course lunch. We have been coming here for many years and I have to say that the value is... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and it was wonderful. Small and cosy, staff were pleasant and spoke a little English, and were extremely helpful in helping us choose the right meal for us. Food was excellent and plenty of it as well. They offer a set price or you can choose from the main menu, is very... More

We had eaten here before and had a reasonable experience - so thought we would dine here again - big mistake! Despite booking weeks in advance we were given a badly placed table by the door, staff were far more interested in the French customers. They failed to offer the chance to order an aperitif, and despite saying I wanted... More

We were recommended this Restaurant by our hotel, and it proved to be a great place to eat. The busy staff gave the air of high quality with professional service. The menu was broad enough for all tastes, and the food itself was beautifully presented and exquisite. Highly recommended.

We visit Calais every year but would go for the day just to visit this restaurant . It is superb in every way. The decor is good and also the staff (although not much English spoken) and the food is all cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The menu is varied and there is a set menu for a very...

Our hostess from our B&B recommended this restaurant. We were there at about 6:30pm last Sunday evening so it was not too busy. The staff were friendly and coped with our very poor French (with a smile). We chose from the €28 menu and our meals were delicious. My husband said it was the best steak he had in our... More
