Oysters are only good when fresh, as they are in this restaurant. The pate and sausages also are excellent. 19 Euro lunch is a steal.

Order the oysters. If you can get the Formule (pate, oysters, ice cream, glass of white wine) then you are totally sorted for a fantastic lunch. Loved it, went back twice more.

can I made reservation by email?

Response from Julianne C | Reviewed this property |
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.
Est-ce qu'on doit faire une reservation ou peut on "walk-in"

Response from Julianne C | Reviewed this property |
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.
Je voudrais faire une demande de réservation pour un groupe en avril 2017. Merci de me transmettre l'adresse E-mail de la Boîte à Huitres à Bdx.
