This must be one of the best value resturants in Calais, not overpriced but the quality is 4*. Attention to detail is very good and is a friendly and hospitable place to eat. Fully recommended.

I had the cheapest Formule menu and it was very good. Service was quick and friendly though it was later in the evening.

Came for dinner. Took a menu for 20€ + kid's dish. The food was good but not exceptional. The service friendly but they kept messing up our orders (and the resto was almost empty). The place itself nice, I would say for a nice dinner....More

Not far at all. Google maps suggests 8 mins by car which sounds about right. No parking on the Rue Royale itself, but plenty on the back streets.
