In the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area of Paris, café culture is very much alive and well, but for something more substantial, seafood restaurant Le Bar à Huîtres is the only place to be. Set close to the infamous Sorbonne University, this elegant but relaxed eatery offers a rather sophisticated alternative to your baguette and coffee with a wide range of seafood – from the freshest possible lobster cooked straight from the tank to decadent oysters in the shell – at surprisingly affordable prices. Seated in a quirkily decorated dining room, complete with shell-trimmed pillars and salmon pink upholstery, Le Bar à Huîtres diners can enjoy all the atmosphere of the quartier once home to Simone de Beauvoir and Sartre in gourmet style.
