Description: 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.

Can't recommend this restaurant enough. We had the full seafood platter with crap, lobster, scallops, the works and with the cozy atmosphere, great service and exceptional food and great location made this was one of the best culinary experiences on our trip.

We'd booked a table here based on TA reviews. We chose the 30 euros menu and the crispy crab we both had as starters was excellent, and the fish couscous and steak were also very good. The food was cooked to perfection and presented very well. The carafe of wine was also very reasonable. Service was efficient but reserved. The... More

We were in Calais just for the day and went to this restaurant, having read other reviews. We were not disappointed - from the moment we stepped through the door the service was attentive but not intrusive and the food was simply wonderful. We started with a delightful amuse bouche which certainly got the taste buds into gear. This was... More

From a so-so greeting and being seated in an almost empty dining room, the service was sporadic at best despite the fact that there appeared to be ample personnel on duty (even though one of them seemed to disappear regularly). The first course ranged from really great fresh shrimp to who know how the rest of the choices were, but... More

Went to this restaurant on the strength of trip advisor reviews when in Calais for 1 night. We ordered from the 39 euro menu which was very good value. I had foie gras to start (I know so bad, but sooo good) and my partner had oysters which were equally delicious. My main was sole meuniere which was absolutely sublime.... More

We went to Calais for a night out & the highlight of the evening was the dinner at Oh Mouettes.

We had not booked but managed to get a table. We had the 25 euro menu which was excellent value for money. There were 3 options per course and we also had an amuse bouche. Each course was really good and we were given plenty of bread. The waiter did not speak English but we managed to make ourselves understood,... More
