This is not a very touristic location. If you are inParis you'll be lucky to find this heaven of seafood. You can find all kinds of musseowl, lobster, crabs. Fresh, professically served and a convenient price.

When we first walked in I thought the place was empty and nearly walked back out. Fortunately we didn't as the food is lovely and all the diners were sat upstairs. Full of French diners ( always a good sign) this very elegant restaurant will not disappoint. The service and staff are also excellent and very helpful. The alcoholic soufflé... More

There is nothing better to ruin one's dinner than having to put up with a mad over-excited restaurant manager. Having chosen to opt for an evening menu didn't help as it soon became obvious that this would lead to 2nd class service. Some of the seafood was not even available at the start of the evening. Are they resting on... More

When you go into a restaurant that is the King ofShellfish, well, you eat shellfish, meaning oysters Because undoubtly, France has the best, by far. There are also incredible lobster, razors, cocles, etc., etc. Tonight I had the special Belles which are meaty and salty, a dream! I have a small stomach nd I have to be very choosy and... More

Great food and good service! Langoustines and salmon kabobs skewered with shrimp were scrumptious. The place is gorgeously decorated and the view if you are lucky enough to get a table by the window, is amazing! You get to see a little bit of Clichy from it. We had previously told the waitress that we had tickets to see a... More

My girlfriend and I ate here for the first time this weekend and opted for the Plateau de crustaces with some extra seafood as additions. I have eaten seafood platters like this on many occasions and have to say that this was one of the better ones. The seafood is very good - the langoustines and crab were tender and... More

Description
Charlot's Art Deco palace is to be foun d right in the heart of a very lively quarter of Paris. And if Place Clichy reminds you of the seaside, it's entirely thanks to Charlot, reigning supreme for over thirty-five years as the capital's favourite seafood and shellfish restaurant! The authentic Marseille fish soup, bouillabaisse approved by the Marseillais ans with an a la carte twist, is enough to transport you to the seaside.

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
