Description: Since 1883, the restaurant Dessirier is famous for its fish, seafood and oyster bar. Since 1996, Michel Rostang succeeded to keep up this reputation. The chef, trained at the Rostang school, and its team prepare whole fish, grilled or "en croute de sel" from the daily arrival: gorgeous sea bream (1,2 kg), turbot (1,5 kg), sea bass (1,2 kg) or the indispensable sole of 1,2 kg which is unique in Paris. The Menu also mixes the "Classiques" such as Bouillabaisse or Vol-a-Vent with new creations like the Lobster & Crab cakes or the Cockles from Barfleur, "Camus" artichoke risetto with "rattes" potatoes. With its new interior design exalting contemporary art and Cuisine, Dessirier is the place to be in Paris for those who are looking for a sailing spirit.

We had the "menu des amis" in 4 courses with a glass of Champagne and Chablis. Good quality of the fish: a whole monk-fish for 2: well cooked and especially tasty.

If you’re looking for excellent seafood with a great ambience, personable service and at a decent price point....got to Dessirier in the 8th arrondissement.
The lobster pasta was scrumptious and my husbands John Dory cooked to perfection.
A decent wine list too!! After chatting with the next table we found ourselves being spoiled by Jean-Marc.....he went above and beyond and kept the wine flowing!!
Thank you for a perfect night in Paris!!

The langostines were awesome. Super fresh tasting and sweet. Some of the best langostines we have ever had. The John Dory special with cream sauce, mushrooms and peas was awesome. I had the bouillabaisse which has a ridiculous amount of food. Like ridiculous. It starts with the fish and mussel soup with garlic toast and then 30 ounces of seafood gets plated in front of you. Like no joke. I counted 5 filets of fish. Not 5 portions. But five huge fillets of fish! Along with a langostine, clams, mussels, and potatoes. I literally left about 20 ounces of fish on my plate by the end. Which was a shame. The monkfish cheeks had a great sauce and the best frickin little potatoes that I have ever eaten. The monkfish tasted a little over but the cream sauce was great.
Service was quite good. Very nice staff. I wish I had room for the hot chocolate soufflé that everyone seemed to order. Maybe next time

Thank 2001NH
