My daughter and I had an unplanned 24 hour stay in Calais on Christmas eve, while our family waited for us in the UK. While disappointed that we couldn't get home, this restaurant was a silver lining. We thoroughly enjoyed every course on the Christmas eve menu with accompanying wines. The menu was well constructed with great flavours. The staff... More

We came here because the restaurant in our hotel was not open in Christmas Day - they recommended Au Cote d'Argent as being both open and good. How right they were - from the amuse-bouche to the coffee the food was excellent, with innovative pairings and subtle flavours complementing each other. The service was just right, and the chef came... More

This was either my fifth or sixth visit to this restaurant. Like many I stop by for lunch after stocking up with wine and cheese on a day trip. Without exception the food is excellent and the service first class. You have a choice of 3 menus although I rarely eat off the cheapest menu the choice looks very good.... More

Great meal and service - including snails, bouillabaisse and amazing cheeses. Beautiful day with a view of the White Cliffs of Dover in the far distance.

We have eaten here before but not for many years. However this will now be our go to restaurant in Calais. The food is just fantastic and the service is second to non. Such lovely staff and Bertrand and Sandrine know how to run a proper restaurant. Just go and enjoy.

This restaurant was busy on a Thursday lunch time but we got a great table. It feels light and airy with views all round. The decor is very maritime with wood panelling. The toilets were also well maintained and luxurious. The menu had a fine choices and we went with the better set menu. Nice to have an amouse bouche... More

Many times we had spoken of dining here on our way through Calais and this year we finally made it. Amazingly we didn't have to book and this was early August 2016. The food was amazing, service faultless and were made to feel we were the only people dining there. Hope to return next year. Rosemary, Australia.

Very classic French cooking. The set menu at lunch is very reasonable price wise and you have the choice of some very good French classics. The service was very good and the chef comes out to ask you how you enjoyed the meal which is a nice touch.

The table was comfortable, the service was friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. Each element of the dishes were carefully thought out and prepared. The sauces were really good. Our granddaughter was delighted with the desert... More

Au Cote d'Argent restaurant right on the water at Calais faces the seawall with fascinating views of the watery parade of sea ferries churning in and out. The dining room puts you in the mood for excellent seafood, with varnished wood-panelled walls, marine blue carpeting and upholstery, nautical detailing and huge plate glass windows for viewing the waves. Chef Bertrand Lefebvre trained with some of France���s greatest chefs ��� Paul Bocuse among them ��� before opening his own restaurant here. The cuisine is simple, elegant in a selection of menus that include dishes like chicken livers saut��ed with mushrooms in sherry, fillet of red mullet with rice and shellfish with saffron or half lobster without shell but with coral sauce. The service is warm, the cooking refined and sophisticated, the wines are French and the experience a delight.
