Good simple food and good value

On a March evening at close to 10pm and needing a light supper, we fell on Café de Paris within a five minute walk from the Hotel Meurice. The atmosphere was quietly buzzy and the simple menu more than adequate. The food was fresh and of a reasonable standard - steak frittes and a mixed fish salad... read more

We stopped here before returning to the UK wanting speedy service and simple good food. The service was ok, but the food was not great. All 3 steaks were tough as old boots, and not particularly tasty. They came with a veg garnish...cold and discoloured carrots, and the requested sides (chips/ pasta) were incorrect, although remedied on request.

Crumbs all over the chairs. Unimaginative menu. Inflated prices for the standard of food. Shabby. A restaurant that gets away with mediocre food because it serves tourists. However, they do offer a menu written in English. Service is swift. Food was hot.

Many of you will consider Calais a mere passing point beset by hordes of would be illegal immigrants. A) You have never had the 7 course gourmet menu at Le Chanel. B) You haven't had the amazing pleasure that is the Café de Paris. Situated at the bottom of Rue Royale on the corner by the big brick thing and... More

After a shopping trip round Cite Europe visiting the Cafe de Paris is a real treat. You can take your time and watch the world go by. I had a Paris burger which was outstanding and one of the best burgers I have ever had! My husband had the Moules Marinere and said they were outstanding. A great atmosphere with... More

This is a nice restaurant with homely decor and friendly service. The food is good but not outstanding but the prices are very reasonable. Service is fairly quick but getting the bill at the end is a very slow process. We would definately use again.

We stopped here for lunch. The restaurant looked interesting from the outside. I took the salad de cafe Paris and was glad I did not take a starter it was large with good portions of duck and chicken. My friend had the mussels which again was a good portion. We both had the cafe gourmand to finish. The meal including... More

We had the moules roque forte for 9 euros, includes bread and frites. Sat upstairs really nice, house wine fine...well fed for not a lot of money. Tend to slow down on the meals later on, still busy as a bar.
