New Winter Menu!

Satisfy a dragon hunger all day long

In the morning, witness the awakening of the dragon

From 10:00, the restaurant opens its doors and welcomes you for a hearty breakfast, while the Calais Dragon is still sleeping. L'Antre du Dragon offers a continental breakfast served on the terrace at the foot of the nave of the monumental machine. On the menu we find: pressed fruit, hot drink, pastries and bread, traditional and local Chênelet jam.

From noon, have lunch in the shadow of the dragon 

Ideally located, the restaurant offers a full view of the Dragon Shelter for a well-deserved lunch break. Our menu is based on compositions of original toasted sandwiches accompanied by salads. Also try the freshness of our salads or our gazpachos! Finish your race with a well-deserved home-made dessert.

a restaurant on the theme of the Calais dragon, by the sea

For a snack, hot chocolate for the young dragon lords!

The perfect formula to recover from your emotions after meeting our monumental machine! A delicious Viennese chocolate and its “Blue Dragon” colored whipped cream accompanied by a smarties cookie or a sugar crepe. Adults will not be left out and will be seduced by our hot specialties, homemade pancakes or our generous desserts entirely made on site!

​Aperitifs: Twilight at the Dragon forecourt

After a day spent walking along the seafront, the Calais Dragon falls asleep in front of your eyes in its Den. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a unique moment in its company, while tasting one of the new tasting boards made up of local productions. Also sip our tasty house cocktails, accompanied by a traditional garlic bread toast! 

​Sunday brunch ‘Sea view’

Every Sunday, enjoy our family brunch in the restaurant or on the terraces in the form of a sweet and savory platter from 11:00 until 15:00.


Our team invites you to (re)discover the regional specialities: Tomme des 2 Caps or pâté de foie du Nord and Andouille de Cambrai. Complete the experience by tasting our Dragon de Calais beer, brewed 40 minutes away, an American Pale Ale with the first bitter flavors that give way to fruity notes. Even before tasting it, you can guess subtle herbaceous and citrus touches in its fragrance.

Our entire menu is designed to showcase the territory and our machines. Taste our 'Dragon' chilli-based recipes or revisit the classics with our cheese bread toasts with Tomme de Raoul with herbs and Pavé de Calais.
