    why not l'Ecume? or La Cagouille?

      depends a little on what you like in oysters. I happen to like small oysters and L'Ecallier has #5 Belons that perfectly suit my tastes. pretty reasonable priced as part of their lunch menu.

      if you like the big juicy Fines des Claires I would recommend l'Huitrier just off rue Poncelet.

        We think that Huiterie St Regis on R.de Four is great for oysters

            Sorry, you are absolutely correct. Other side of the Y at R du Four & Montfaucon

              And it is called "Huîtrerie Régis".
