I use to come here if no others are having sea urchins, they always have. On the oyster side, the are ok, but nothing special, as comparing to some other's offers. The service is ok, yet they are pushing you to order... :(

Our waiter Fabrice spoke good English and really helped us. We had beautiful oysters (a mix of 8) and lovely scallops washed down with good wine... More
