We had booked in advance knowing that we were going to be in Calais but never in this area before. It was a good choice! Two charming waitresses welcomed us, and then patiently explained in competent English what the various dishes were. One could choose from one of three set menus or a wider range at somewhat higher prices..All were... More

Fantastic food in a nice atmosphere. We plumped for the most expensive set menu at 31 Euros and were not disappointed with any of our choices. Beautiful food well presented by courteous and helpful staff. Only one problem, they were closed for holidays on our return journey! We will definitely be back for more.

Our third visit confirms that Le Grand Bleu is in our opinion the best Calais has to offer,great service,great value and above all great food. It's slightly out from the centre of town,over looking the harbour, next to two lovely bars. We have been there on Monday nights ( it's closed on Tuesday ) and it has been full, that... More

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch in this small but friendly restaurant close to the fish stalls in Calais. The service was efficient and friendly. The "amuse bouche" was the size of a starter in itself. We had chosed the two course menu and felt that it was an excellent choice, although diners near us had opted for the three course... More

This was recommend by a friend as a good place to eat near the ferry. Menu for meat lovers but I did find some nice fish. All presented so lovely and unusual but portions were very large. Worth a visit

We were thrilled to start our holiday in France with dinner at Le Grand Bleu, which our hosts at the Villa Vent d'Bout recommended. Located by the harbour near the ferry terminal a short distance from the Place d'Armes the food is prepared to a high quality and with great style. The service is likewise excellent.
