Well-run, popular restaurant. The best in central Calais.

You're tired after travelling, you don't want flunkeys and silver service, you want a beer to lay the dust, then a grill or chops or a dover sole, freshly cooked and served with a glass of wine and a smile. Where do you go in Calais? Café de Paris.

The mussels at this Café were very good and fresh. The personell were friendly and kind enough to understand our bad French.

Low prices and good service in the center of Calais. The ambiance is stuck in the 90s even if many locals attend this place. Food is decent but, of course, is not the best in town

We had a night in Calais on our way down to Spain on the train. Just off the boat in the pouring rain, into the hotel - we though it was a Mercure but it is now an Ibis - and then off down the street under an umbrella and into the first restaurant we came to. Maybe a gamble... More

Was one of the few open early, so we tried it. Food was fine, service was very friendly. Not the place for a special celebration, but as a bar and meal venue, very good

We went for dinner on New Year's Day and it was about the only restaurant open in Calais but it was simple and absolutely delicious. Very friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere - I would really recommend it - lovely simple French food.

I had a steak, which I really liked. The meat was tasty and tender. French fries were good. The only thing is the cooked veggies you get which are almost mashed (cooked too soft) and the horrible interior.

Went here with a family of nine for a coffee one morning before we caught the ferry back to the UK. The service was very friendly and welcoming. Are French wasn't very good and the waitress was patient with us and helped us out.

Were struggling to find anywhere on a busy Saturday night that had space and had a vegetarian option. Café De Paris had both, along with lovely, friendly, helpful staff and really nice food.
