Hummm... perhaps it was a matter of expectation. From the outside I could see the myriad of delicious sea food species displayed, all looking fresh. Also the inside tanks were filled with live fish everywhere. The table next to ours were shown the sole fish that was about to be cooked for them and it was live and moving on... More

Several of us went there for lunch (we go there a few time a year or at their Ternes restaurant). The oysters and shrimp were excellent! I took the maître D's recommendation on one type of oyster - big mistake: they were 50% to 100% more expensive than the others - yes they were good but not at that price.... More

The food was good, if overpriced. I felt that the staff were rather condescending and lacked warmth. They should pay more attention to their guests and try and give the impression that they are glad to see you. For this reason I could not recommend to friends

How a good neighborhood oyster bar and fish restaurant can go bad... Early dinner: 8pm, on a Monday. Restaurant almost empty on arrival. 1) The waiter seats us without asking us where we would like to sit. (We move anyway). 2) We order oysters... Very impressive presentation with hot ice making an interesting rolling-fog visual effect. Impressive and quite good.... More

I ate there with friends on a Saturday night, we had not booked but were found a table on the heated terrace. A complicated menu to negotiate presented on an ipad with lots of permutations. I had the 39 euro menu which was good excellent oysters followed by cod which was perfect. The wine list is incredible if pricy (one... More

25 year ago, I lived in Paris and loved oysters. I used to go to this restaurant, at least twice a month, then I discovered the French Big Sea food platters and so that became a monthly treat. This restaurant, of the few there are in Paris (5, I think) was to my opinion the nicest though I lived in... More

Been there for a decent meal on my last day. I ordered a set menu which was a seafood tartar, a griled fish and a crème brûllet. First was chewy and not edible, the second was very good and the third was not bad. What was significant is the fact that I had to wait for ages to have my... More

I went there with four people and we got a wide selection of oysters, sea urchin, and crab. All of it was very fresh, and the oysters came from all across Europe and ranged in size from 5 (smallest) to 00 (giant ones) and each had a unique flavor. We of course washed it down with champagne, and their list... More

I was feeling like oysters for dinner, so we thought we would try this place. There was an à la carte menu and some set price menus. There was a three course menu for €39 which included 6 oysters as one of the entrées, so we took that. The oysters were large and delicious and the fillet of sea bass... More

Two friends who live in Paris recommended this restaurant and I am very glad I took their advice. One of the very best I've experienced! Three of us had the 39€ prix fixe menu plus a bottle of wonderful Chardonnay. We could pick from a tremendous selection within the confines of that menu. I chose lobster bisque for starter, then...

Neighbourhood Profile
Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the centre of Paris this neighbourhood has something for every hour of the day.
