Had a fantastic meal here, including a great fruit de mer platter. The restaurant has a nice welcoming and comfortable ambience with excellent service. The really memorable thing was the wonderful selection of delicious French cheeses - irresistible!

Great food and very friendly service. Can particularly recommend the foie gras starter. Really looked after us including 7 year old daughter. Good value for money considering the quality of the meals and the wine

Our 4th or 5th visit. M Crespo and his team offer excellent quality food with seamless service in a light, contemporary setting. Superb fruits de Mer plateau and a well thought out wine list. Definitely a jewel in Calais' culinary crown.
