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.

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.
