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.

There isn't much to add to the detailed review given by PortusLemanis excdept to confirm every word of it. After a day out in the area, we arrived at the restaurant around 6.30 where we received a warm, friendly welcome and where everything was already in place for our visit. After a gloriously sunny, if chilly, day, it was turning... More

Oh! Mouettes is a restaurant that I have visited regularly over past ten years or so and I have never regretted my visit. Whether sitting in the summer sun on the terasse or sheltering from winter storms with no-one else in the downstairs dining room (while a local celebration took place upstairs), the food and the service have always been...

Had a day trip to Calais with friends and spent spent a couple of hours having a delicious lunch. We were seated upstairs at a table by the window which gave us a very good view overlooking the harbour. The service was excellent as was the fish we ate - so fresh and well presented. I would most certainly recommend... More

After arriving via ferry back from a short trip to kent we got a table here via amex concierge service and have to acknoledge their research :) The service was very friendly and prompt. They were flexible with our daughters wishes, and the food (menu) was well presented and extremly delicious. Thanks to the service and kitchen! Highly recommended!

Although based in England, because we work closely with the French, we decided to have an office meal at this restaurant. We all speak varying levels in French and like good food. Well look no further, if you like freshly cooked seafood, this is the one for you. Overlooking the harbor we were treated to a culinary delight. I went... More

We ate at this restaurant on Friday December 5th. The welcome was warm and we sat on the enclosed terrace where it was a bit chilly. The staff did their best to keep us warm with overhead heaters and ground floor heaters but it still felt cold. While we had a glass of champagne they delivered a lovely little amuse... More
