Was just over to northern France for the long weekend and stopped by what appeared to be a highly rated restaurant in Calais before proceeding to our destination further inland. Ordered the white wine mussels and a calzone. What we got was a 4 cheese pizza (incorrect order) and a portion of Miniature mussels. So let’s start with the pizza , I can forgive the fact that the order was incorrect because it was so bad that no matter what toppings they put on it would still yield the same outcome. The base is as thick as my shoe sole and the cheese was like a fleece, it basically was a glorified cheese and tomato sandwich on thick bread- in terms of bang for buck, yes it surely was filling (because it was so thick) but in no means anywhere close to what a pizza should be. Now come the mussels, hardly any “sauce” to dip our pizza bread and the mussels were the size of a teaspoon, it also felt like they spilt a herb jar over the pot as it was coated when it arrived on the table. March should still be in season for mussels and I can assure you that a London based Tescos would sell larger mussels compared this supposed seaside town. Taste wise- so so . Left half the pizza and the mussels left my partner hungry.
Luckily there was a Kfc down the road which meant we could top up our stomachs before beginning our road trip.
One plus point was parking was plentiful and free but that’s more to do with the area than the restaurant itself.
