Welcome to the seafood diet - see food and eat it (and pay a reasonable price).

Calling all seafood fans: a canteen specialising in all things fishy has landed in the 9th arrondissement. This blue fronted restaurant-cum-grocery is perched on a street corner and inside, we can almost smell the salty air of the Brittany coast; complete with whitewashed walls, wooden shelves, suspended blackboard menu and a live lobster tank. The menu is truly original, the idea being to take your fill from buckets of whelks, cockles and crab, choose a side (squid-ink pasta or buckwheat salad) and send your fill to the kitchen where it is prepared and returned beautifully.

But tonight is for something more festive. Mussel tartare, with butter cream and chives – the perfect aperitif with a Naufrageurs lager (€5.50). Then onto a platter of oysters (€16.50-29.50 for a dozen) and a herby clam broth, inhaled between sips of cool white wine. Bravo Juste - you have us well and truly hooked.
