There are some moments in life that take your breath away and leave you delirously happy - this was one of them. A little out of the way eatery, serving “seafood tapas”. We had 8 dishes between two people, and most, if not all, were outstanding and inspired. Must try: seared scallops with a wonderful sauce that had a hint of - dare I say it - fermented shrimp paste. The ravioli with shrimp filling was also a highlight.

The waiter recommended what I think was their house white, a Pouilly Fume with lovely floral notes and nice minerality. Great accompanyment to the meal!

Oh, and the waiters speak English, they have an English menu, and reservations are highly recommended!

Original seafood tapas to share or enjoy for yourself. Very tasty combinations that are out of the common (delicate fish fritters with ananas sauce, panfried scallops with spinach and pistachios, spicy ceviche with persimmon...) Super nice service, less than 10 tables that make up the intimate atmosphere. You should really go if you're visiting this area. Booking necessary.

Found by accident it was a really pleasant surprise. Seeing a place almost full of local people was already a good sign, and it proved to be a good choice. I opted for one of the daily menus which was delicious, good value for money and washed away with some nice chablis.
A place to return to at my next trip to Paris.

We booked in advance for a Thursday night early sitting. The place filled quickly and walk ins were having to be turned away.The place is deservedly popular, the plates are fairly priced but it wont work out as a cheap eat night because the small dishes are exceptionally tasty. Not really trad french food at all but intelligently combined textures colours and flavours beautifully presented and utilising generally less expensive fish in a way that elevates it beyond expectation. Pleasant and efficient service. Highly recommended.
