NileGuide Expert tip:
A hideaway for oyster lovers in St-Germain
Normally in Paris, oyster lovers partake of their pleasure in brightly lit brasseries. This prettily decorated oyster bar couldn't be more different. Seating just over a dozen at little white tables under a ceiling festooned with fairy lights, it serves only oysters of varying plumpness – fines de claires, spéciales de claires, belons, pousses en claires and praires - unless you'd like to branch out into oursins (sea urchins). All the oysters come from Marennes d'Oleron and the prices are reasonable – from 18.50€ for a dozen fine de claires.
