Having filled the car up at the Majestic warehouse, we wanted a good restaurant with parking just outside which was near to the ferry port. This one caught my eye online and I am glad it did. We had booked a table online and I had asked for a table by the window (actually an open area at the front... More

Probably visit this restaurant 3 or 4 times a year and have done for 5 years or more. Always top quality seafood and service to match. 10 mins from the ferry terminal by the old harbour with parking (free) directly outside its perfect for a seafood lunch.

Good place to visit before departure to England as near the tunnel & ferry terminal. Food was very good with excellent wines. One of us had the steak which can be hit & miss in a sea food restaurant but it was cooked very well. Only minus point was my Nan's sole was a tad overcooked & a bit rubbery,... More

This unassuming restaurant has a surprise in store with very friendly service, excellent food and good wine list. We normally head for Le Channel or Aquar'Aile when in Calais but we're a little short of time and hadn't booked anywhere, so on the recommendation of Trip Advisor reviews went to Oh Mouettes and were so glad we did.

We visited Calais on one of our ubiquitous wine buying sessions at Majestic but found Le Grand Bleu, the restaurant we intended to eat at, closed. Seems they always close on a Wednesday. A few months ago when last in Calais we had a very disappointing meal at the Grand Bleu and did not enjoy the visit at all so... More

A quick update. We popped over to Calais for lunch and shopping and booked in at Oh! Mouettes (incidentally, the credit card chitty says "Aux Mouettes", but when you see what the seagulls have done to your car you'll understand the change of name). Happy to say the cooking is as good as ever; we both had the home-made foie... More

Visited when on a shopping trip. The trip advisor site showed no tables but I just went anyway. Excellent food great friendly service. It seems to be in a rough bit of town by a quay side but not sea view. Lovely meal !!

I'm not too used to eating on my own in restaurants, but I needn't have worried here, the staff were charming and I felt perfectly comfortable. Parking nearby is easy (at least on a Sunday). The restaurant is very popular with French customers (always a good sign) - it was full of elderly French couples when I ate there on... More

We pop over to France for the usual day-out, top up with wine and fresh vegetables, at least 5 times a year. We used to drive dowen the coast road to Boulogne for lunch, but sadlyt the fishermans co-operative restaurant we used to visit, which had been steadily going downhill, closed.

Took a quick trip over for some wine on Sunday and popped in here for lunch. Chose the 39 Euro menu, supplemented +3 for the Lobster starter and had the prawns and Crab as a main. Delicious! Great service.

Description
Oh! Mouettes restaurant in Calais boasts some of the very best panoramic views of the port in town. This traditional restaurant, owned by a trio of enthusiastic brothers, specialises in the freshest of wild fish and superb fruits de mer. The interior of this charming restaurant is modern and tasteful, in tones of gold and ochre with not a nautically-themed detail in sight, thank heaven. A dining room on the first floor has unbeatable views over the port, and there’s a lovely terrace too. You might start with a little plateau of fruits de mer, then move on to something like grilled seabass fillet with béarnaise sauce, then one of the many home-made desserts, like the profiteroles. The service is utterly charming and the wine list has a nice selection of Alsatians.
