The restaurants alongside the fish market don’t have restaurant licenses so don’t expect bread, and other items you’d expect. You select the fish on sale in the roadside display and it’s prepared for you. There is wine available but little else. But if you want...fresh fish, even lobster, this is the place.More

At 11 am we were at Alain's place and we ordered two types of oysters and two fresh coquilles de Saint Jacques. The guy warned us friendly that the scallops would be served raw. "No cooking, no cooking." They were amazing. Tasted slightly nutty and...silt, a perfect combo with the white wine. People complain it is expensive. I thought it was worth it.More

Went there with familly. Do NOT expect a cheap eat . It is not. All ingredients are close to perfect and best in class which then explain the price. Outstanding familly lunch. Bravo.

Service by the sea at the stall. You get the fresh oysters shucked to order right in front of you. Wonderful display of fresh seafood you get to pick for your order. Service is friendly and prompt. Simple food no fuss no muss

Seafood as fresh as is possible is served here. Simple and delicious. if you want some bread, you'll have to pop to the bakery over the road. We had oysters, langostines and crevettes. Perfect.

Not sure. Only visited at lunchtime. Somehow I would doubt it as it's in the fish market.

I would say no need. Just try and plan to arrive for an early lunch so you can choose your table. We arrived on a warm August day , without any prior booking and had no problem.
