If you love fish, this is the place to be, but bring along a good credit card, especially when you a là carte entree, main dish & dessert

They do not have a menu in English so you are at the mercy of your waiter if you do not read French. The meals were quite expensive and unimpressive. The service was curt at best. My wife had sea bream on a bed of carrots. The carrots overpowered the fish. I ordered what was described as a shrimp scampi and got 5 shrimp with heads attached sitting on a plate. A tiny pot of rice was served on the side. With so many good restaurants I would not return to this one.

As soon as we landed in paris to rnjoy a 4 day break me with my husband, walked and enjoyed shopping , we just stepped into this for our favorite crabs, prawns and oyster big french platte !!! Lovely french traditional atmosphere and a must french wine! Our lunch was loaded by the favorite oysters with a lovely parisian view by the window..!! We truly reccomend this place for oyster lovers who are fun of parisian good seafood & french wine... a bit of improvent of service could upgrade it as we found the service a bit slow but friendly staff!!!

I'm so sorry to read bad reviews of this place; it's in my opinion the best brasserie in Paris, by far (and I've had a lot).

I don't know if they speak English or not since I'm French and speak French, but I believe I've met many American / English / German people who didn't have a problem.

It's a seafood restaurant (seafood platters and fish) so of course if you don't like fish, seafood or are a veggie it's not the best place for you.

But if you love seafood... it's great. Very fresh. Good wine selection. Efficient service.
