The food is served mostly raw with some cooked options. Everything is done very simply, the cooked food is simply steamed with lemon. Oysters are served raw on ice with lemon. We had half a dozen of the size 2 oysters (they come in 3 sizes). Very fresh and a great way to enjoy seafood. Ignore the cooked items. The prices vary daily but they print them on the menu every day. Very reasonable prices - around €13 for a half dozen good sized oysters. The menu comes in a variety of languages and the waitress spoke good English. They also have a little stall outside that sells the seafood if you prefer to cook it at home. In which case, next door is a great little produce shop selling fresh fruits and vegetables.

The special for the day was only fair. The fish/loup was not cooked properly and the vegetables were poor and cold.

The waiter aplogised but did nothing else. No alternative offered!

Dropped in here one sunny afternoon for a light lunch. The wife and I shared the excellent seafood platter washed down with glass of wine each and rounded off with a cappuccino each. The cost was a mere €45 very good value we thought. Also worth considering is the puff pastry topped seafood stew at €19 each. They have an English menu and they also have a stall outside the restaurant selling shellfish.

No cooked food, just seafood at its best. Indulge in a bottle of Chablis and order a seafood platter. You'll never be wrong. Located in the very central Place Garibaldi
