“Lunch experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

This restaurant in the town centre was, unlike a few others, open on a Saturday for lunch. There is a bistro part and a cafe part. Food generally good although the chitterling sausages are an acquired taste that has passed me by. English spoken and the menu has translations. Staff were friendly and the meal was reasonably priced

“Overall ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Made our way to the Cafe du Paris, last night on the recommendation of a taxi driver. Five of us in all, on an overnight stay in Calais. We opted for the set menu ,costing either 18.50euros for 2 courses or 23euros for 3 courses. I have to say every one couldn't fault the starters we had, either pâté or the bacon salad. But those of us who opted for the steak main were a little disappointed.
A young lady on the table next to us (also English), had the steak from the al la carte menu for about 14-15 euros and it was twice the size and looked more appetising. A couple of us opted for a desert and again couldn't fault what we got. Such a shame the main let it down. The place was very popular though, a lost of French diners. We all agreed we would definitely give it another go when we visit again, but opt for the al la carte rather than the set menu. Total bill for 5 adults with drinks 137 euros.

“A good evening out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We visited for an evening meal on saturday. We were greeted warmly and the staff were all friendly and efficient. The menu is not adventurous but has a good selection of dishes. Our food arrived quickly, tasted good and was reasonably priced.
The atmosphere was great with a real happy buzz.
If you want to eat out but are not expecting gourmet food then I would heartily recommend the Cafe de Paris

“This is a cafe/bistro - and its open on sunday evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Sunday evening in france - not much hope of a decent restaurant being open and we had driven 10 hours - so didn't want fancy.

This place looked lively - and it was busy. Staff worked hard - but had lots of tables to cover so waiting a while was involved. Large portions - we stuck to basics - we had moule marrinier and chips - absolutely ok. one portion would have done for 2 after a starter or no starter and 1 each.
