A cool, laid-back seafood restaurant with an excellent wine selection and epic shellfish platters.
At The Fish Club, chef Julien Burlat crafts seafood dishes with traditional French flavours, served with an excellent wine selection. On the tables the menus serve double duty as place mats, adding a charming seaside shack touch to an otherwise properly Parisian space with graphic wallpaper and cosy banquette seating.
The menu covers classic dishes and shellfish assortments as well as some properly ambitious cooking. Starters might be an assortment of fried fish served with a lovely tartare sauce (€8), or grilled octopus with beetroot and tarragon cream (€14). Main dishes are divided between five different fish species, perhaps a magnificently simple serving of turbot served with cumin-flavoured carrots (€34). But despite the hefty price tag, the star here is the superb platters of crustaceans and shellfish: a ‘red’ platter featuring lobster, shrimp and prawns or a ‘grey’ with oysters, clams and whelks, priced at €39-€48 for one person or €75-€90 for two.
