Recommended by

Excellent seafood restaurant - never had a bad meal here. Beautiful seafood tower and seasonal cooking. Clamato is a classic institution I really like. It's right next to Septime that has become famous and hard to get a table at, so going to Clamato next door is a good alternative as they don't take reservations. It’s an excellent seafood restaurant and I've never had a bad meal there. They're known for their beautiful seafood tower and I definitely always get that and just a some cooked seafood and shellfish that they offer. Clamato’s menu is a good reflection of what's in the ocean at the moment.

Fun, delicious and creative modern cuisine in one of the most famous Parisian bistroThe sense of fulfilment that you feel eating Septime creations is directly correlated to the difficulty in being able to book a table in this small and famous Parisian bistro.Here I finally found the fun of a creative modern cuisine, right proportions that amaze without tiring, those beautiful harmonies between acidity, bitterness, smoked and spiciness that make you think with great enthusiasm 'I want more!'.A lunch full of emotions, wow dishes and joy that I will hardly forget!

Hole in the wall seafood heavenTwo tables of six plus a small counter. Super fresh, seasonable, sustainably sourced and extremely reasonably priced shellfish and fish with a daily changing menu. Mostly natural wines, noisy & fun wibe. Olive Davoux’s über-tiny place in the northern Paris (10th arr) is not for everyone. If you are looking for peace and privacy, don´t go here. Sur Mer is all about passion and buzz. But where the atmosphere might be a bit rough, what´s on a plate is all about sophistication. Lovely place.

Industry Hot Spot: Maxime & Solal’s new natural wine bar is a delicious, joyful VIBE.Maxime Dardeau & Solal Martin-Grondard’s new Les Oeillets wine bar - is actually the former Chambre Noire where they used to work. During their tenure, they paid attention and learned how to run one of the most popular new openings in the 11th. They took over the corner spot, gave it a fresh coat of paint, amped up the natural wine list and injected some serious high-level energy into the corner neighborhood spot. Every night it’s packed with a young exuberant crowd packed in around tiny tables to eat, drink and socialize on the terrace and indoor dining room. Although it is a GREAT time (and Max's physical comedy could rival Chaplin), it is not all party-party … a series of top-notch resident chefs rotate through the open kitchen at the zinc bar creating delicious sharing plates. Current Chef Paul Alexis’s menu starts with house pulled-pork rillettes with Basque peppers, Gorgonzola with chilis followed by (my all-time favourite) large crispy hash brown squares dressed with tangy tarama-caviar creme, limequat and grated Gouda cheese, Paimpol white beans with bacon fat croutons & chili oil or the delicious warm shallot tart with fresh raw cream. They are serious about their natural wines too - currently in love with German & Hungarian wines and who I’ll always be eternally grateful for turning me on to the Brand Brothers in Germany. It is a VIBE and the guys are full of SO, MUCH, JOY.

Chef Jonathan Schweizer from Café les deux Gares opened a second place with his sous chef who is a Spanish-Mallorquin. He cooks with just one induction stove on the bar, they wash the dishes in the sink of the bar so the place is very rock'n'roll. The wine list is great, with natural wines and an amazing sommelier. They cook things that are very different, in a Spanish, Mallorcan style that I like very much. This place is super interesting and I really recommend you to discover this place.
