First class food, specializing in creole style cooking, particularly seafood. my group of travellers from Australia enjoyed the seafood experience, the service and the personal touch from the owner and chef , Pierre. Recommend this experience to all as something unique in the heart of Paris

here you can have the Seychelles on a plate and eat on the beach. So for those of you who have already been to the islands, it will be a nostalgic visit and for those of you planning your holiday, go here to get your tastebuds in gear.
