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.

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.

It was the middle of the afternoon by the time my daughter and I got a chance to eat and we walked up and down the front and side roads before deciding to eat here. Although the menu had some odd choices I went for the set menu of fruits de mer salad, duck and chocolate mousse. The starter was... More

I would not say it was a brasserie, no omelettes, no steak hache and frites etc. but it is a passable fish restaurant selling fresh good value sea food. My starter was excellent and my partners fish soup was good and well presented. Mains are let down by some odd choices of sides very well done carrots and a small... More

A wonderful restaurant, have now been three times within the last year and have not been let down at all. We have eaten at this restaurant both at lunch and dinner times and the service has been fantastic every time. There is a varied fish menu and a good choice for those who don't eat fish. The kids menu, while... More

Calais is not renown for fine cuisine. In fact it can be quite difficult to find some place which doesn’t dish up any old slop because there’s no need to try hard for ‘passing through’ trade which is unlikely to ever return. When in France looking for a restaurant, café or pub, I tend to have a few simple tried... More
