A great place for an oyster “dégustation”. The ambiance is fun and very authentic, the prices are unbeatable and the oysters delicious.

The oysters sold here are super fresh. They are packed for takeaway or served on the spot with some lemon. We enjoyed the view to the bay while having some of the best oysters ever

Cancale is a cute little seaside village and the oysters were brilliant. Plenty of parking and a few nice shops too. Well worth a visit.

Wonderful selection of oysters on the beach. Shucked right there - good prices but extra cost to shuck, lemon, plate. Wind in your hair fun!
