We are here several times during a week-long business trip and found it to be very welcoming, with a tasty menu and good service. There's a little outside area under cover but this is also the smoking area so if you're n/s you'll likely prefer the comfortable dining room instead. What's nice about de la mer is that it is...

Third time here and the food is as good as ever. My wife enjoyed "Lamb and pineapple". I had the Ribeye. The French have a way of cooking that is much better than some of ours. No wonder they drive MICHELIN!

The food on the whole was acceptable. Soup was a little bland but inn the whole OK. Entrocote had reasonable flavour and the mussels were a little salty. The baked fish was tasty according to my wife. The floating island was a nice dessert.

We chose this restaurant as it looked very busy with lots of people sitting outside. Both of us like seafood so the menu was perfect - 14 different flavours or mussels. Both had mussels and chips. Desserts were also good, the raspberry sorbet is delicious!! Service was quick and efficient. All staff were friendly and our waiter spoke English because... More

We are regulars, dining here annually at least for many years, and have seen many changes over the years. This brasserie is probably serving the best food it has ever done at the moment. The decor looks smart, the service is good and the fish and seafood well cooked and presented. We started with a dozen luscious number 2 oysters.... More

This place is a must for a meal. We had mussels and a seafood platter. Couldn`t fault it. Wonderful food, lovely wine, good service and at the end of it a very reasonable bill. Thank you for a wonderful lunch.

La Mer restaurant in the midst of Calais most popular tourist area wears its culinary heart right on its sleeve. This warm, traditional restaurant the sibling of La Sole Meuniere serves nothing but fish and fruits de mer, including twelve different kinds of moules. And it serves them all day long, even at four in the afternoon after you ve hit the hypermarche and require sustenance. The dcor here is comfortable and welcoming, with panelled walls, white table linens, and seafarer-costumed waitstaff who know their crustaceans. Specialties include cassoulet de la mer, sauerkraut de la mer, fish couscous, paella. Drink house muscadet and linger over superb cooking.
