Description: Oh! Mouettes restaurant in Calais boasts some of the very best panoramic...
Oh! Mouettes restaurant in Calais boasts some of the very best panoramic views of the port in town. This traditional restaurant, owned by a trio of enthusiastic brothers, specialises in the freshest of wild fish and superb fruits de mer. The interior of this charming restaurant is modern and tasteful, in tones of gold and ochre with not a nautically-themed detail in sight, thank heaven. A dining room on the first floor has unbeatable views over the port, and there’s a lovely terrace too. You might start with a little plateau of fruits de mer, then move on to something like grilled seabass fillet with béarnaise sauce, then one of the many home-made desserts, like the profiteroles. The service is utterly charming and the wine list has a nice selection of Alsatians.

Took a quick trip over for some wine on Sunday and popped in here for lunch. Chose the 39 Euro menu, supplemented +3 for the Lobster starter and had the prawns and Crab as a main. Delicious! Great service.

I dined here once on my way through Calais. The food was not bad, and the owners/staff make you feel very welcome. I had oysters (good), and fish (quite good). In relation to the reviews, however, I was a little bit disappointed. The view was not really that impressive, although it may depend on time of day. Quite good value... More

Since a 2012 review have added this to a shortlist of favourite 'last-lunch' destinations before departing Calais. This visit did not disappoint; in fact it excelled! We had the economy 3-course basic (my description, not theirs!) at 21€ (sub £16). I just cannot think of a place in the UK which would give such excellent value for money. I guess... More

You could not complain about any of the dishes we had here. My husband had prawns with mayonaise which were big and juicy. I had foie gras pate and 'sushi' salmon which again, was OK. My husband had an excellent sole, plainly grilled for main - as we were right opposite the fish market it should be fresh and it... More

If you go to Oh Mouettes make sure you take a table next to the window to enjoy the view of the harbour and incoming ferries. Most people opt for one of the 3 relatively well price set menus however since we were interested in the "millefeuille of crab and avocado with asparagus" and the local fish soup "bouillabaisse de...

We visited last week while spending a few nights at a campsite in guines. The food was just beautiful! I enjoyed it so much. I had a fish course in a curry sauce. Everything was very fresh and well presented. I will definitely visit again if we have time when travelling via calais.

It's quite difficult to find a good restaurant in Calais when you are short on time, thanks to TripAdvisor this where we ended up and found it excellent. Great food and friendly staff who are happy to speak English if you need help understanding something.
