I often wish I could visit Le Channel more often but a 10.5 hour day including ferry delays for a 2.5 hour lunch is a big ask. Nevertheless, the trip was well worth it! The greeting from the Crespo family was as warm and friendly as always and the food as consistently brilliant as ever. Our 4 course meal was... More

Food as usual was outstanding we both went for the 43 euro menu. We both chose the Foie gras de canard entre My wife then had... More

We have eaten here three times in recent months, each time the quality of cooking and the welcome was excellent. The amuse bouche is huge and can easily be confused with a first course. This time we were given a plate with a flavour packed spring vegetable soup, (very welcome on a cold windy February night) , a delicious vegetable... More

Absolutely wonderful food. I would like to leave this as that simple statement of fact but must make it to 100 characters.

We had a day trip to Calais to do some food and drink shopping but also to have a good lunch. We have eaten there many times over the last 20 years and it has always been good. This time we both had the 43 euro menu and it was all very good but the Plat de Fruit de Mer... More

This restaurant has been in business for more than 30 years and to be truthful you can understand why. This wasn't our fist visit and will not be our last. The food i absolutely first class and I know of no other restaurant better in the area. It is not a cheap place to eat but then again you wouldn't... More

We stopped here for lunch after a trip to the wine shops and spurred on by other reviews and we were not disappointed. There are lots of menus to choose from and we opted for the 23euro menu which was great value. We were first served complimentary appetisers before our starters arrived which were beautifully presented and tasty. The main... More

Family owned since 1978 this does feel stuck in time and not a lot has changed over the years in some Regards. Very fish focused. Our table of 4 had the 43 Euro 4 course menu. Very good amuse bouche indeed, generous in content. Almost a mini starter. Starters were a bit of a let down. Foie gras was very... More
