Restaurant Aquar'Aile

Seafood in Calais

A 20th-century apartment block framed by lurid green-glass balconies is the unlikely setting for sublime seafood. Occupying the top floor, the dining room has white-clothed tables, and panoramic windows overlooking the port, beach and Dover beyond. Try prized Marennes-Oléron oysters, monkfish with crushed celery and watercress emulsion, salt crust–baked whiting, brown-butter sole meunière, or lobster bouillabaisse.
