Au Côte d'Argent, Calais
Julian Lucas - your guide to eating and drinking on theotherside

Bertrand Lefebvre worked under France's most celebrated living chef in Paris before opening his own restaurant

By the beach in Calais

Being next to the sea, the fish dishes are numerous and delicious. The clean and spacious restaurant has panoramic views over the Channel. You can enjoy a wonderful meal while watching ferries sail in and out of the Port. There is a beautifully decorated large first floor room for large parties. Prices start at about 130FF a head.

The chef
Bertrand Lefebvre has English ancestors - he is a member of the famous "Boot" lace-making family of Calais. (see
lace). He went to boarding school in Canterbury so speaks English. He trained under Paul Bocuse at "Collonges-au-Mont d'Or", and several other great names in French gastronomy.
