Chose Brasserie de la mer and we were not disappointed. The seafood was excellent and the prices were good.... More

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.

Thank Garel

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.
