3, rue de Montfaucon (6)


Oysters, and virtually only that. A handful of tables with white tablecloths and a counter, no seats. High shelves of wine bottles behind counter, plus two “chefs” (oyster-openers) (plus shrimp, clams and urchins). A Left Bank institution.


Oysters. Chosen by season, medium or large. One dozen minimum or two set menus, oysters with a glass of wine and coffee. Fresh, delicious oysters. Ditto shrimp and scallop pate offered as first course.


A little snippy, but not egregious. Waitress at times seemed stressed. No big deal.


Oysters 34€/dozen. Shrimp 25€. For a light lunch, this could be the spot.
