My pre-booked table was ready, in this very small bistro. I think that they have more covers outside than in - and the consequence was that I was literally sitting in the lavatory. There was a continual stream of visitors, and the door opened outwards,...More

Very casual small place specialising in oysters, obviously, but also other shellfish at a very reasonable price. Its a limited menu, but everything is top quality including the raspberry tart we had for dessert! We thought it was perfect.

It is such a nice little place along the canal. The service is very friendly, the food is of great quality. Also important: the price is very democratic. If you love huitres, simply go there, you won't regret it for a second.

This oyster market was right on the marina at the port of Caen. We had oysters hot and cold, smoked fish, and their fish soup. The oysters were all outstanding and the soup more of a crab and seafood bisque. Simple, local place with great...More
