When in Normandy, you must enjoy the fresh sea food at least once. And this place is the place to go for just that. Fresh oysters, prawns, langoustines, crab, welks and lobster. Along with good wines, a lovely outside seating and great service. We started with the fish soup. Not a soup filled with all kinds of fish, but a... More

As said, this is the place to dine especially if you like oysters. I have posted a pic of the plate i had. For EUR 24.90, you get a big crab pincer, prawns, whelks (really good), langoustines and of course, oysters. The smaller plateau is really enough to satiate one person. I did not give a five stars as ii... More

My husband and I were visiting Normandy for a weekend trip and this restaurant was about 10 minutes from our hotel. The reviews on here were very good and I absolutely love oysters so my husband took me here. The staff were wonderful, seats and serves you right away. The menu is very selective. English is little but good enough... More

Whenever I'm near Caen (within an hour) I make time to visit this wonderful little restaurant. Attentive friendly family run business and quite simply the best oysters I've ever eaten at a fantastic price. The set menu a E11.90 is perfect.

Had one large platter and a smaller similar dish, at 35 and 25 Euros respectively. Both were superb and filling. Desert also excellent. Only disappointment was that our dogs were not allowed in restaurant, so we sat outside after owner switched on heaters which made it v comfortable. Waitress was excellent, although English spoken sparsely only

Excellent oysters with very economic price. Large variation to choose from, friendly service and nice wines, what else do You need? This is a great way to start a night with a dozen or so fresh oysters.

We stopped in for a pre-dinner bite and thought we would have a few oysters and we stayed and kept on ordering more. The no. 1 oysters are huge an delicious, highly recommend the hot oysters served with the different toppings. They were so good that we ordered an additional dozen twice.

This small restaurant is a real find for any oyster lover: don't miss it. They have a large selection and offer both raw and cooked oysters. We tried all toppings and loved them all. The seafood combinations are excellent too: our first time to try whelks. Our waiter was wonderfully helpful with the menu, since we speak very little French.... More
