We ate here during a brief visit to Calais to collect our car after a breakdown. We had a very pleasant meal although the service could have been a little more attentive. There is plenty of choice on the menu, at a range of prices, and a pleasant outside seating area.

Stopped overnight in Calais and stumbled on this place near the main square! Had the menu dehydration for 16euro. Food was excellent, lovely pre starter then great pate to start. Chicken supreme main lovely and a delicious brownie to finish. Service great and restaurant busy on a Tuesday night. If I'm in Calais again I'll be coming back here .

We had planned to dine at L'Histoire Ancienne having read the reviews for this place on TripAdvisor but it was unaccountably closed. We wandered further on down the Rue Royale and came across "Au Vieux Fourneau" , which looked very inviting. The menus were very reasonably priced and as we were hungry, we settled on the one for 25 euros, which gave us four courses, including a kir to start with.

The mise en bouche was a little ham salad and also a mouthful of crab risotto. We then both had a Croustiant of moules - a very delicate pancake absolutely full to bursting with mussels in a cream sauce, followed by a generous steak and exceptionally good chips. The piece de resistance was the dessert, with samples of six different puddings on the plate. Totally delicious.

An excellent meal, with friendly and efficient service. No wonder the restaurant was full by the time we left.

As I would have walked by this restaurant. The Prix Fixe is more food than anyone should have and it's really good food.
The service was attentive - and there were two very large parties going on in the main dining room so we were very pleased.

Wonderful French treats and terrific cheese plate to end the meal.
I will suggest and I will return.

There is an enclosed outdoor area which we enjoyed. With all the birds on the street - this is a better option that really being outdoors.
