Thanks to TripAdvisor reviewers for this great find in Caen. Just what we wanted at the end of this trip. A great plat de fruits de mar & delicious artisan ice creams - who could ask for more. Service also was great. We will be back soon.

Very good casual dining - if you like seafood. The specialty is oysters - all sorts and styles. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was small and clean and tidy. Looked like a family owned business and they were obviously proud of their place - with good reason. Would like to visit there again.

Fresh and creative food. We ordered oysters and tartar for app - oysters had a sauce with mustard. A nice and different touch. The tartar was very good. We had a catch of the day and lamb as entrees. Both were outrageously delicious. Loved it. Nice wine. Wow such a good meal. Thanks.

This little spot on the Harbour in Caen should not be missed. It's a small menu and you have to like oysters although there are a few other fish alternatives. The oysters are sublime and the price unreal. Staff and ambiance were charming.

When in Normandy, you must enjoy the fresh sea food at least once. And this place is the place to go for just that. Fresh oysters, prawns, langoustines, crab, welks and lobster. Along with good wines, a lovely outside seating and great service. We started with the fish soup. Not a soup filled with all kinds of fish, but a... More

As said, this is the place to dine especially if you like oysters. I have posted a pic of the plate i had. For EUR 24.90, you get a big crab pincer, prawns, whelks (really good), langoustines and of course, oysters. The smaller plateau is really enough to satiate one person. I did not give a five stars as ii... More
