We ate here in August, the food was pretty average and the service was fairly poor. We didn't expect that much and were not disappointed

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.

We had previously booked, but in fact the restaurant was quite quiet. It was good to see that not only Brits eat there; there were a few tables of French customers and some Chinese too. We went for the "Admiral" menu at 28.90, and while we waited for our starters of foie gras on the one hand and scallops in... More

Our hotel was just around the corner but the restaurant was empty and the menu not particularly appealing so we decided to look around. This restaurant is in the port area and there appeared to be a number of restaurants around but this one had a good menu. We went in to be told that they were full and could... More

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 d��cor 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.
