A small corner of French flavours and memories, where the most exquisite palates return to sample the finest oysters from Normandy. This is how Ainaud Thierry, the owner, describes them: 'They are from the Atlantic, and that means they’re fatter, fleshier, some a little sweet, but all with that deep taste of the sea.' The Marennes Oléron oysters served at Gouthier are refined and bred organically. Their flavour is more delicate than those from the ocean depths, less bitter and iodised. In an atmosphere of understated good taste, with a few tables and some barstools for snacks, this restaurant offers not only oysters but also high-quality canned goods rarely seen on the market, such as smoked eel with saffron, monkfish liver, salmon nose and smoked cod belly. An excellent selection of cheeses. Wines and champagnes are served by the glass, with prices to suit all pockets and tastes.
