I had the best oysters I have tasted in France, not expensive and the waiter was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it.

Loved a dinner here. Waiter took time to explain (in the best English he could muster) that the Oysters vary on a scale of salty and scale of slimy (or that's what I think he said). Opted for the tasting platter which had a selection...More

The lunch menu at €20 is GREAT value - starter, TWELVE oysters, glass of wine and dessert. €20!! The friendliest staff we've come across in Bordeaux too. The oysters were fresh, the bread was fresh, the wine was chilled - we'll probably go back again...More

My partner wanted a fresh seafood for lunch. It's a small, family run restaurant with a 99% oyster menu. 24 fabulous oysters with an excellent bottle of local wine for an extremely reasonable price..... Next time we are in Bordeaux we will be back.

The perfect spot if you fancy outstanding oysters in Bordeaux...but just be aware that oysters really are the only dish on the menu, and so if you or people you are with want some variety then be warned! Great location in central Bordeaux, we were...More

We started off with a tasting plate of different oysters and then chose our favourites. We paired with a fine entre de mers. The staff were really lovely and the ambience was great. It's not the cheapest of places but if you're going to do...More

Place is medium size with oyster cleaning place out of the restaurant, service is very basic (could be better...) and the menu essential with a few choices but good quality and reasonable prices considering what they sell. Wine list as well is short and ok...More

It was a slightly breezy evening but still warm enough so we sat outside under the trees, which was the best spot! The entire staff was most friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, and gave perfect wine recommendations to go with what turned out to be the...More

I'm afraid they only take reservation by phone according to their website (see the "Faire une réservation" page). But it shouldn't be hard to get a table if you walk-in before 7pm on a weekday. Hope this helps.

Réservation n'est pas obligatoire. J'y suis allée comme walk-in, c'était jeudi soir vers 18h et il y avait beaucoup de places, même en terrasse.
