A full menu was available but the majority of patrons... More

Top quality seafood, simply prepared, but absolutely fantastic, with exceptional service. We were almost the first to arrive and definitely the last to leave, even though they were full, so no sense of being hurried

Hidden away in L'HOUMEAU, the Coquillages & Crustaces has great Huitres (Oysters). Had 30 extra large with a Jean Max Roger Sancerre. A great unpretentious restaurant with great seafood and service. Not to be missed

Had lunch here the other day and was very nice out in the sun. Had the salmon burger which was tasty, and dad had the fish and chips which was demolished quickly! Will be back here for sure.
