A very unimposing restaurant located on the first floor of this fish and seafood emporium just opposite the fish market. However the food and wine are served with great advice and we have always enjoyed the ambience here (although it sometimes gets loud). We started off with (of course) a glass of champagne, and then our starters included smoked salmon,... More

We had lunch here after arriving in Reims. The restaurant was nice and allowed us to push back our reservation a 1/2 hour (but not more) as we arrived later than expected from the airport. They have a very good champagne list and the waiter helped us select one. They did have menu's in English which we embarrassingly had to... More

The favorable descriptions and comments in recent reviews are spot on. Fresh off the plane from the US and train from CDG, we wanted a simple but first-class and "French" lunch. My assortment of oysters from different parts of France was super-fresh. All were excellent, and the differences were striking. The carte includes two different large salads with smoked salmon,...

My husband and I had dinner here our first night in France. We were very tired so we went early to dinner but wanted to try this unique little restaurant. It is as advertised in the back room of a fish store. Just walk past the counter through to the back and there are small tables in a bright room.... More

We booked ahead here and were a few minutes late but the staff was gracious and lovely. We had a nice table outside on the busy avenue and enjoyed oysters to start then delicious fish for our mains. We also had a wonderful bottle of champagne to wash it down.

Last Friday our group of 12 had the privilege to enjoy dinner in this lovely joint (fish shop during the day, restaurant at night). The waiter was very patient and made a selection for us of fruits de mer and main courses. The oysters were very fresh and the tartare dishes were so delicious! Thanks!

Everything was wonderful--- from the champagnes and wines with our entrees to the perfectly grilled prawns and fish. Service was excellent.

Le Bocal Restaurant is part of a fish shop that sells incredibly fresh high quality fish & seafood opposite the main market in Reims. We booked a couple of days in advance luckily as we watched approx 10 groups of diners being turned away. Very friendly welcome & excellent champagne by the glass started the evening off nicely. The weather... More

A beautiful restaurant with fresh fish. Highly recommend the raw fish choice you can get. It's also really good for oysters if that's your kind of thing, we didn't like them so didn't try but they have oysters from various parts of France which are all meant to taste different. All I can say is that the fish we had... More
