Calais suffers from pricey restaurants - with this exception. Food is well prepared, service is excellent. interesting wine list.

This restaurant is just past the town hall, before the main stretch of bars and restaurants, but it's the best of the lot. There are a choice of menus where you have 3 courses for reasonable prices: we had the €20 menu plaisir both nights and between us sampled the whole selection of starters, mains and desserts. Every single one was delicious, with mussels, fish, steak. Pain perdu was a lovely pudding made of brioche bread (would recommend). The wine was also very good and the prices reasonable. The bill for 2 for 3 courses, drink to start and bottle of wine was €60. The staff are also very amenable and friendly.

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 cheerfully made an excellent omelette (you can always tell a restaurant from its omelettes, my grandmother used to say.)

My friends had warm oysters, skate and a beef dish that included bone marrow. They said that it was all excellent.

And our personal waitress (she seemed to be on there for us) was jolly, engaging and totally efficient.

Thoroughly recommended.

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 as good as it should have been. Gourmand rather than gourmet.
