“Great food and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We have visited this restaurant a few times over the past three years and have always received good service - our most recent visit was a couple of days ago and it offered the same good food and and of course, the good old pizza! The range of pizzas is excellent though some of the topping combinations are odd for pizza fans - eg curry sauce on the hawaiin as well as the normal pineapple and ham! We have tried various dishes on the menu and have always been pleased with our choice - most things come with fries or a green salad as seems to be the norm over there. Menus are broadly translated into English though some of them read quite amusing - this is particularly helpful if your French isnt good and you are looking for something familiar and arent "au fait" with French dining. As with many Calais eateries, the staff have a good command of English and are very welcoming and particularly obliging to their foreign visitors and will usually find you something you are willing to eat even if not strictly on the menu. Prices are very reasonable as are portion sizes - definitely worth a visit, not posh or fine dining but a decent variety of good honest food served well.

“not the place it used to be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This restaurant has declined steadily over the last few years.We found the food fairly average following a long wait... for pasta and a goats cheese salad....underwhelming to say the least.

“Central Fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Good atmosphere and reasonable prices - worth a visit if you are in the centre of the old Calais. The daily specials are good value and if you go on internet there are discount coupons.

“Great food authentic French, despite the name”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

We had the pork in cream sauce and the cuisse de canard, both great, good price, but why only chips!!
Watch out as the pizza menu doesn't start till 12 noon (that's when they get the oven fired up) - this includes the Flamkeuche, which is like a very thin pizza and is excellent.

“good pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

The pizza was very good and the beer was cold. If only the price was a little cheaper it would have been perfect. Great service.
