Great service. The food was incredible - as a crab lover, the tender meat was well marinated in its own tamale. A wonderful choice between the regular crab or spider crab. I would recommend the regular crab as its meat is softer and flakier with a nice balance of firm meat in the claw. The spider crab had slightly less meat but remains firm and slightly "sweeter" than the regular crab. Hammering away, cracking the shells made it all a very worthwhile experience. The cost for the crabs were very resonance. I highly recommend this place.

The crab was excellent. We had the spider crab which was the one available that night.
Oysters though not fine de Claire were great! But what's surprising was the turbot. Perfectly cooked. We didn't see many tables ordering it (focus was on crabs of course) but it should not be missed!

As a seafood lover, this was crab heaven to me... well, not for the crabs that is... This place is a piece of Normandy or, so you wish, Brittany, in the middle of Paris. A buzzing yet intimate gem where you can eat great seafood, have a good drink and have a great laugh with colleagues or friends. The staff was friendly and efficient. Marteau means hammer in French and this is exactly how you get access to your meal... Don't get annoyed by the continuous hammering allover the place: it's all part of the fun! Would absolutely go here again next time in Paris.
