Restaurant Le Divellec, Paris

Jacques Le Divellec has been running his (1 Michelin star) fish and seafood restaurant for quite some years now and is known as one of the references for such cuisine in Paris.

Claires de Marennes N°4 Oysters, straight out of the restaurants’ seawater tanks: they couldn’t be more fresh and were some of the most delicious oysters I had.

…and on our plates with its “Sauce aux grains noirs”: a very tasty and juicy fish. The creamy sauce seemed a bit old-fashioned but tasted quite good too.

Le Divelled indeed delivers very good fish and seafood quality. In particular the oysters are quite worth a detour. Otherwise the ambiance is a bit old-fashioned and the fact that the restaurant was nearly empty didn’t help. And I think it wasn’t packed for a reason: the horrendous pricetags! I’m actually very sure I won’t return soon considering those prices, and even despite those delicious oysters. Or maybe I’ll return there only for oysters one day. Oh, who could tell me where I could get comparable oysters in Paris?
