Description: Since 1883, the restaurant Dessirier is famous for its fish, seafood and oyster bar. Since 1996, Michel Rostang succeeded to keep up this reputation. The chef, trained at the Rostang school, and its team prepare whole fish, grilled or "en croute de sel" from the daily arrival: gorgeous sea bream (1,2 kg), turbot (1,5 kg), sea bass (1,2 kg) or the indispensable sole of 1,2 kg which is unique in Paris. The Menu also mixes the "Classiques" such as Bouillabaisse or Vol-a-Vent with new creations like the Lobster & Crab cakes or the Cockles from Barfleur, "Camus" artichoke risetto with "rattes" potatoes. With its new interior design exalting contemporary art and Cuisine, Dessirier is the place to be in Paris for those who are looking for a sailing spirit.

In my opinion one of the best fish restaurant in Paris. Decor is what you expect from that type of restaurant, service is almost perfect, Maitre d'hôtel excellent and very knowledgable on wine.
Over all, my kind of place with a lot of locals.

This restaurant was participating to "all to the restaurant" offering a sepcial set menu for an attractive price (one meal free for two people). Not sure it is a so good deal as this restaurant serve excellent fish. we had a tartare oysters and fish, mushrooms with mussels (excellent) and gratine of macaronis with lobster (average not gratin???) and the cake of house mille feuilles (very good). We took two bottle of petit chablis ((excellent too). not at the menu we started with oysters (guillardeau N1) excellent but too expensive 72€ the dozen. Service was OK, no more. nice dinner but such menu is not so attractive and the food not as good as the a la carte food. price high despite the offer > 100€ per head.

This is a special restaurant, specialised in fish with indeed a superb cuisine. But for this type of restaurant, service is too slow. I have taken clients there many times and we always have to ask 2-3 times for everything (water to the check). Worthy if you have time and you are not in rush.

One of the Michel Rostang restaurants in the 17th district, we visited this fine dining establishment twice during a several month stay in Paris and above all the rest, this was a marvelous experience.

The salt crusted fish is great - well presented and tasty. Most of their seafood dishes are hard to choose from - they seem all to be good. The bouillabaisse my wife had on her first visit smelled fantastic and was consumed with aplomb.

We have not tried his other restaurant in the 17th district that offers a fixed price menu.
