“EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT.”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We love fresh, raw oysters and seafood. We love good wine. We love unpretentious, intimate restaurants. That's why we loved Huiterie Regis!!

Somehow my research led me to this charming little restaurant. That's called getting lucky.

We were in Paris for only 5 nights of our 23 day French adventure. I emailed this restaurant to ensure they would be open on Easter Sunday. I received an immediate, positive response.

Ample food, efficient and friendly service, our favorite kind of setting. There is nothing more to say except to put it onto your dining list while in Paris.

“One of the best oyster restaurants in Paris”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Huîtrerie Régis doesn't have the variety of choices offered in Le Bar a Huitres Saint-Germain and isn't as trendy, but it's my choice #1 oyster restaurant in Paris (from what I know, of course). Freshest oysters from the west coast quite as good, if not better, as their "relatives" from Normandy and Brittany. And Les Belons are also served in Huiterie Regis!! Small restaurant, very nice atmosphere, wonderful hosts, well-paired white wine. What else do you need?!! And by the way, the bottle of white wine in Huiterie Regis will cost you almost as much as bottle of sparkling water in Le Bar a Huitres Saint-Germain!

“Happy to return to Huiterie Regis!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Eighteen months have gone by since we visited last…and are happy the quality has remained the same. A simple concept…a dozen oysters and a glass of wine. Friendly servers.

“Go early and swoon with each mouthful!”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

For raw oyster lovers only!!! Start with the Scallop pate- it's delicate and delicious. The oysters are opened moments before you eat them, just slide your knife under the connecting muscle and don't waste the beautiful oyster liqueur---the freshest taste you'll ever experience!! The prawns are the same--so fresh!!!! Order a bottle of the Pouilly Fume and you're in heaven. There are only 16 seats inside and about 6 outside. The Clams and Sea Urchin we'll try next time.

“OYSTERS AU NATURAL”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Got there early, it's a very small restaurant, tables pushed up together but that is the case with many larger restaurants in Paris as well. Service was prompt, obviously mainly oysters, nothing less than a dozen served, no hot food served at all as there is no kitchen, just a counter, but you come here for the oysters right?

Oysters were fresh and tasty served with some crisp white wine, got chatting to a French guy at the next table who travels the world and reckons that this place serves the best oysters so that is good enough for me. Service was very friendly, big hugs all around when we left! recommended for oyster lovers
