Staying at Le Meurice Hotel on a wet, windy night we booked a meal in the restaurant. We had the meal priced at 35 euros and it was superb. Delicious food ,beautifully presented in a tiny restaurant. The wine was reasonably priced too. Cannot recommend it too highly!

We were staying at the Meurice and booked La Diligence....small panelled dining room with perhaps a max. of 14 covers...all diners were Brits! French waiting staff, pleasant and helpful. Scalop and chorizo salad a very good size and tasty. Steak with mushroom sauce very good, perfectly cooked. Decent wines and the cost per head for three courses and two bottles of wine £50 so very reasonable. I would say that as it's a small dining room everyone whispers a fair bit and mostly just couples, whereas our table of four were probably thought rather loud and boisterous despite only talking at a normal volume! Would return if just as a couple as probably more suitable for intimate dining a deux.

Food excellent value at 17 euros for 3 courses from the "Menu du jour" which offered 3 choices per course. Disliked having to walk through an occupied private function room to gain access to the restaurant.

If you are in Calais and you want a special meal - this is the place to go, the food is superb.
The service is very good and reasonably priced. This is a little more upmarket than the other local restaurants, but if its a special occaision......

Very traditional French restaurant. Good service. Little English spoken. Excellent food, served exactly to our liking. Thoroughly enjoyed by us both.
