Any particular restaurants you would recommend in Paris for someone who loves langoustines?

    I also love langoustine which in Puerto Vallarta in my local restaurant run around $20 for half a dozen.
    So I was shocked to see the following which I copied from the Prunier menu.

    Large Breton langoustine, per piece......................15. »

    I hope you can find them more reasonably priced.

      Ledoyen's Grosses langoustines Bretonnes, last Thursday nite, the absolute high point of an otherwise thoroughly undistinguished and deeply disappointing meal. Impressed by the langoustines, obviously not recommending the restaurant.

        I had a similar thought about my lunch there a few weeks ago, awesome langoustines, but all else was just OK for the new lunch price. One excellent white CdP was marked up 5X retail as well. Also, it was looking like their lunch is becoming a tourist trap.

        Don't take any risks, go get them at Le Divellec.

          I always get the famous Langoustine with Basil Pesto from L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

            This is from Taillevent. Have you seen bigger langoustines?
            Also nice trick with the toothpick.

              Yes, 3 to the kilo, they usually come from Scotland. Le Divellec has them (not always).
