Summary: top choice for informal lunch after looking at the market. The GOOD: - The fresh sea food is great and tastes fantastic - Prices are very reasonable (e.g. sea food platter for 1 for €11 for 3 oysters, lots of crabs, shrimps and sea snails) - It's very informal with tables squashed against each other, but the bustling sea...

We missed eating lunch at the market on Sunday along the river, but were delighted by the atmosphere of Jean Mi, as well as the excellent seafood (cockles and mussels) and friendly staff.

This cafe/bar is located in the middle of the Marche Capucins and has a dozen or so mismatched tables and chairs. For the whole time we were there, the tables were full and everytime one became vacant, it was quickly snapped up. It was full of locals eating oysters and drinking local wine and we were happy to join them... More
