Description: La Mer restaurant in the midst of Calais��� most popular tourist area...
La Mer restaurant in the midst of Calais��� most popular tourist area wears its culinary heart right on its sleeve. This warm, traditional restaurant ��� the sibling of La Sole Meuniere ��� serves nothing but fish and fruits de mer, including twelve different kinds of moules. And it serves them all day long, even at four in the afternoon after you���ve hit the hypermarche and require sustenance. The d��cor here is comfortable and welcoming, with panelled walls, white table linens, and seafarer-costumed waitstaff who know their crustaceans. Specialties include cassoulet de la mer, sauerkraut de la mer, fish couscous, paella. Drink house muscadet and linger over superb cooking.

I tried something new

We stumbled over this restaurant, it was a sunny lunchtime with a lovely patio area. The staff were friendly but this is France and staff not great at speaking English (why should they be!) We opted for the inexpensive set lunch menu - I had stingray.... Never had it before but would certainly... read more

We passed by and decided to have lunch here, what a great find it was too. I had fixed price menu, my partner had a la carte and my nephew ate from the kids menu. The food was fresh, tasty and excellent. My nephew also cleared his plate and loved the desserts too, that is a good rating in itself... More

Passing through Calais, we stopped at the Brasserie de la Mer. We had an excellent meal, Soupe de poissons, Brochette de Saint Jacques, Filet de raie, and so on ... Everything was perfect, all served by a friendly staff. Really to be recommended!

Had eaten here several years ago and loved it so returned for lunch yesterday. Nothing had changed. I had the lunchtime set menu which was excellent value - generous portion of salmon and the cafe gourmand selection of mini desserts was great too. My partner had the Roquefort mussels and then the chocolate dessert which he really enjoyed. The staff... More

Great little bar brasserie for a quick stop. Drinks and moules mariniere served quickly and without fuss. Very tasty meal but a very large serving and appeared to have quite a lot of locals eating there. Popular spot near the ferries.

Three of us called in for lunch as we had a couple of hours to spare before catching the ferry home. We all ordered the seafood platter which was excellent quality and good value for money, washed it down with a nice bottle of Muscadet whilst sat outside sheltered from sun and wind watching the world go by. Thoroughly recommended.

We remembered visiting this restaurant about 5 years ago and It great; we decided to go again last week, and we were not disappointed! It was even better. We had the scallops - the best I've ever had. The presentation as you can see by the photo was very impressive. Highly recommended.

The fresh shell fish is amazing. Over 15 varieties of Mussels. We had to wait around 40 minutes for a table, as it was a Saturday evening and is also a popular restaurant with locals.
