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.

I first ate here decades ago and took my current squeeze here as part of our extended New Year celebrations in Paris, on New Year's Day. Most other restaurants in the area were absolutely packed, but this one wasn't, which I suppose is its own message. It was OK, but not sensational. Oysters were oysters. Our main courses of scallops... More

The restaurant reminds me of a cheesy 70's casino. They are overpriced for undercooked food. Service was mediocre. Spent alot of moneyto walk away hungry.

There is something I don’t understand … the geolocation is good , more and more a “bobo” place . The fish and hoister are great and very fresh ! But the deco is out of age and not clean . The global place need to be revamp asap and the service is like the deco a old style. It was... More

Visited 12/11/14. (I decided to delay this review as it is honest and wanted to think about my experience, rather than write one immediately, whilst still a little angry) Ignored the reviews from people stating they were disappointed with the choice on the menu - The restaurant translation is "the King of Shells" - what were they expecting, steak &...

Went here for our last night in Paris. I've always loved sea food, and if you don’t or you’re unsure.. don’t go here! There is only 1 option on the menu (Duck) for non-seafooders... However if you do, this place is amazing! I had salmon and crème fresh for starter.. and it was by far the most amazing smoked salmon... More

We've eaten at Charlot, Roi des Coquillages several times and never beed disappointed. It is probably one of the best "commercial" sea food restaurants in Paris (if you want to pay a zillion euros each, I'm sure there are more "refined" seafood restaurants). The restaurant is situated right on Place de Clichy (not a million miles from the Moulin Rouge)... More

My wife and I travelled to Europe on a tour and as part of the package, this ‘famous and well known restaurant’ was added into the itinerary as the ‘farewell dinner’. I have reviewed a few hotels, but never restaurants. However, in this instance, I wanted to warn travellers about this particular establishment. The entrance is on a busy street,... More

Food is good and fresh but service is extremely slow. Although we were there on a Thursday night and the restaurant was half empty it took 50 minutes to get the starters... Also there is almost no choice for those who do not eat fish (one starter and one main course) which may often happen in a party of 5... More

We were drawn to this restaurant by the street-level display of seafood and the startling Art Deco façade, so decided to have lunch - a great choice as it turned out! (The internal Art Deco decoration and fixtures will not disappoint, fully living up to the promise of the façade). Of primary importance is to stress that this is a... More
