“No-Frills Perfect Oyster Bar”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

The second stop on our impromptu oyster bar tour of Paris, this attractive little restaurant served best-yet oysters in a simple, charming style. There are only five small tables, a little fridge for the wine, and the zinc display case, fronting the street, for the shellfish. You can buy the oysters to take away; however, the owner-server will also shuck them for you, place them on ice (with some aioli and bread) and pour you a glass of wine. They were superb--salty, juice, a bit sweet. We also had a half dozen shrimp that--in their own way, mind--were every bit as good as the oysters. Next time, though I'd order more oysters and pass on the shrimp! Boiled shrimp I can do back home (with Zatarain's shrimp boil, probably), but these oysters are exquisite. The final total? Set us back--oysters, shrimp, wine--45 euros. Worth every centime.

“Worth it...”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

I love the tiny environment of this restaurant. There were only 5 tables and the one server. Super good oysters! I would definitely go back.

“Special!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Stumbled onto this place like everyone else seems to do. Tiny space with great oysters, a lovely champagne and a very engaging helpful host. Some confusion about restaurant name, as signage is for La Cabane, rather than Opium, which is actually his partner's fashion store around the corner. Well worth a visit, if you like European oysters (coming from Australia, this has been a real eye opener as to what we miss out on!). Will definitely go back!

“Best oysters”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We had walked by this small business several times while staying in the area. The display of fresh oysters drew us in. The proprietor was charming and made excellent suggestions on which oysters to try. He told us stories about his life and explained the different types of oysters, comparing some with those found in the US. They were each excellent, some White Pearl, some special Le Claire and most I don't remember. Also excellent bread and butter. I think we could have finished another couple of dozen but it was getting a little pricey. Highly recommended.
