Had a great meal, excellent ambience and brilliant staff. Good choice on the menu, including a special regional menu. Good value, and even with a group of sixteen we were all served at the same time. Definitely worth a visit.

Busy restaurant in Calais with excellent staff and food. Service efficient even when crowded with free amuse bouche of crab and liver pates provided. Wine, as expected. of high quality.

We have passed this restaurant several times, only seeing as far as the plastic pavement seated area, but missing the warm cosy restaurant inside the building. The staff were cheerful and welcoming, recommending a reasonably priced, tasty, Cotes de Rhone wine to go with our...More
