My wife and I have eaten here both at lunch time and in the evenings several times. It is a great example of a family owned restaurant, which offers a selection of excellent typical French cuisine. It has a very extensive wine list (the owner is extremely knowledgable) and you can order a limited (and changing) selection of wines by the glass.
This restaurant is quite small and intimate, looking out onto the Place des Armees in the Centre of Calais. You can tell from the decor that the owner is a wine buff!
We arrived without reservation, and were advised that we could have a table but service would be slow (which we didn't mind) as there were 2 large parties already seated and a limited number of staff. Nevertheless the owner looked after us very well.
the set menus are very good value at 32,23, and 18 Euros. There is also an ALC selection. Plenty of choice, not particularly specialising in fish. The vegetables are seasonal,and lightly cooked, and everything prepared is typically French. Not all the dishes "come off", but the cooking and presentation is good.
Our bill totalled 77 Euros without service (brought down by our purchase of house wine.) We couldn't hope to eat as well in the UK for anywhere near this price.
