“Great restaurant , reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

My husband works in Paris, so when I visit I always read the food blogs for the new places...this was one of them, open only 3 months
And it was open on 1 may, a holiday...
A great place in a nice neighbourhood, small, with a nice bar, and the tables aren't to close.. great music ..
They have a nice wine and cocktail menu with reasonable prices.
Before 7 pm you can choose out of a few appetizers, the oysters were out of season. All appetizers, 3 euro for one, were great.
Then you can choose out of 8 dishes, to share, 8-10 euro/plate. We had 3 and were full! All very nice with fresh ingredients. Ex tartare de veau and asparagus.
Service is basic, sometimes you have to remind them about your drinks, ..
I would definitely recommend this place and would go back definitely for the oysters !

“Dazzling small plate oyster bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Get here before 7pm when the exceptional oysters are on happy hour special. People watching is excellent, the servers friendly, but you may have trouble finding a seat at this new NoMa ( North Marais) venue. the noise level can get high, The canadian chef has asian roots and a particular flare for the savory umami taste, His inventive dip for the oysters has a tiny bit of heat and sweet to go with the sour.

“a very trendy place with very tasty food - beyond ave tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

One of the cool places in the 'haute marais' with a good bar scene and light dining - for dining downstairs is more discreet and less noisy. Dishes and wine are delicious but don't expect a big meal, rather a big bill (compared to the portions) :)

“Perfect restaurant for oysters and small plates!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We were looking for a special place in the Marais for our last night in Paris. If you like oysters, small plates and excellent drinks, this is the place to go. It has a circular bar and just a few tables. The three of us waited a little while for 3 seats at the bar. We stayed there for over two hours enjoying 4 different kind of oysters, all excellent and beautifully served. The small plates were excellent too. The staff is welcoming and well trained.

“Great ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

We went on a Thursday night and were not disappointed. The bar goes all the way around. The servers were friendly. The little dishes were tasty with a little kick. We didn't leave feeling completely full, but that's not what we were looking for. Great wine! Great oysters! Great service!
