“Just good food.”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

After driving through France all day, we unpacked at our hotel, walked out the front door to the first restaurant we saw as we were famished. Le Petillant was excellent, the staff were friendly and the wine superb. The menu was limited to a few dishes but it was incredibly good, fresh and presented, could not fault them as price reasonable too.

“Great little bar/bistro”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

Arriving in Calais on a Sunday evening after travelling all day from Scotland we were looking for a simple quiet dinner and this small bar/bistro in the main street turned out to be perfect. This is probably not the place if you are looking for an extensive menu but offers a friendly welcome with excellent home cooked food. We shared a smoked salmon with chive cream starter followed by a ham and cheese omelette for me and pork Normande for my husband, both being accompanied by portions of thick cut chips. The bread was fresh and replenished without asking. In fact the whole meal was so generous that I had to abandon my cherished thought of a real French crepe for dessert !
With two drinks each the bill came to 38 euro.
We will definitely be returning.
