We had the seafood platter for 3 and it was fab. Oysters, langustines, cooked prawns, crab and whelks. We could see other table had gone for the set menus and these all looked delicious too. Recommended!

Le Channel is eager to please and on every count hey do just that. The ambiance is set by the open kitchen set in the middle of the restaurant. There the chef makes some extraordinary dishes. I had jamon serrano followed by a wonderful foie gras with onion reduction and then a grilled scallop/shrimp dish with an essence of what... More

I hadn't visited Calais for quite a long time and so I was looking forward to eating in Le Channel again. A warm welcome and a table by the window was a good start to the evening. We enjoyed a kir royal while we chose from the menu. I was pleased that a freshly opened bottle of champagne was brought... More

I often wish I could visit Le Channel more often but a 10.5 hour day including ferry delays for a 2.5 hour lunch is a big ask. Nevertheless, the trip was well worth it! The greeting from the Crespo family was as warm and friendly as always and the food as consistently brilliant as ever. Our 4 course meal was... More

Food as usual was outstanding we both went for the 43 euro menu. We both chose the Foie gras de canard entre My wife then had... More

We have eaten here three times in recent months, each time the quality of cooking and the welcome was excellent. The amuse bouche is huge and can easily be confused with a first course. This time we were given a plate with a flavour packed spring vegetable soup, (very welcome on a cold windy February night) , a delicious vegetable... More

Absolutely wonderful food. I would like to leave this as that simple statement of fact but must make it to 100 characters.

We had a day trip to Calais to do some food and drink shopping but also to have a good lunch. We have eaten there many times over the last 20 years and it has always been good. This time we both had the 43 euro menu and it was all very good but the Plat de Fruit de Mer... More

This restaurant has been in business for more than 30 years and to be truthful you can understand why. This wasn't our fist visit and will not be our last. The food i absolutely first class and I know of no other restaurant better in the area. It is not a cheap place to eat but then again you wouldn't... More
