If you like oysters on the half shell, this is the place. And it's just as unpretentious as eating oysters ought to be everywhere!

If you like raw osysters then this is the place for you. We each had a dozen and half a bottle of Chablis out on the terrace in the evening watching the sun go down. Very nice evening...

We went to try this restaurant from recommendations here on trip adviser. We are three persons, and we ordered two formule degustation, one with a mix of heated oysters, one with salmon. The third dish was the asiette with fruit de mer. The salmon was great, thick juicy slices of delicious smoked salmon. The oysters were amazing, especially the ones with mushroom, and the ones with camenbert. The asiette was great, plenty of shellfish. But then something strange happened. We would have ordered more, but our waiter's shift ended, and noone came to our table for about twenty minutes. We considered leaving, when a waiter finally showed up, we decided to take the cafe gourmand, included in our formules, and end our meal here.

The cafe gourmand was great, a ball of splendid icecream, a raspberry crumble and a fabulous chocolate gateau. Too bad about the lack of service...

We stopped in for a platter of oysters and they were fresh and amazing. The prices were really reasonable prices. It was amongst the best I've had, even comparing them to those from Zeeland. Would highly recommend this place! The service was also very good, even though our French was really limited. Would highly recommend!
