Two of us chose from a blackboard for a €25 menu. First course a wonderful whelk in profiteroles and good whitebait. We both had fish ¬a Ray and a Red Snapper with good sauces then a Normandy pudding. Nice wine Friendly efficient and quick service. Will go again!

We were staying outside Dieppe on the last couple of days of a trip to France and had no fixed eating plans. We had eaten on the main strip by the harbour on the first day and now hoped to get an early meal on the second day. We chose La Cale on the basis of research on TA and when we crossed over towards the older industrial section of the town - a very short walk - we wondered about the choice. We arrived just ahead of opening and enjoyed the sun watching young lads plunge from the high walls into an inner harbour. We were the first customers on a sunny evening and enjoyed the best meal of our entire two week trip across Belgium and France, and indeed not bettered on our way back across England and Wales. The chef owner was present and even helped to bring out the food. One could talk through the dishes but in reality that is not necessary. Fresh, wonderfully prepared, and sitting alongside a fine wine list and local beers. After we had finished any I was waiting outside I had the chance to chat to the chef from his kitchen door - between my imperfect french and his imperfect english. We discussed the quanities used in the creation of his homemade fruit liqueurs - as I had observed him adding coffee beans to one of the liquid and fruit filled jars lined above the bar and in the window of the restaurant. If you find yourself in Dieppe and looking for a different place this is it

La cale restaurant is located between Dieppe's two bridges on the port. It is a bit remote from the main tourist spot and you have to walk a bit but it is ok. Restaurant is an old cafe that has been renovated with taste.
I arrived at 12 am and by 12:30, restaurant was packed with locals...
They have choice between menu or a la carte and I had an excellent beef burger and meringue cake. Food is served in quantity here.
Dressing is well done.

Definitely Recommended if you are in Dieppe.
One thing, do not expect sea food (crab,oysters etc...) but rather fresh fish.

Do not be put off by having to walk just a few minutes away from the tourist area and into the fishing harbour industrial zone: this is a fabulous restaurant in every respect! Friendly service, pleasant decor and (most importantly) really good food (but note that we are speaking only for the fish — did not try any meat dishes). And, by our Paris standards, amazingly (unbelievably) inexpensive for what we got. This was our best eating experience during our vacation in Dieppe (and highly recommended by our local AirBnB hosts).
