The first place I ever had oysters. Very nice cozy and welcoming experience. Definitely a GO TO place whether alone or couple. Seats about 14-15 in all. Recommended dish: Oysters....Escargots.

Seafood tray was OK but not the best I had in Paris. Wait staff not very attentive and it's very hard to catch their attention to get additional bread or missing cutlery.
