Huîtrerie Régis

Right before you come across the market of St. Germain, stop by Huîtrerie Régis which only serves fantastic oysters and prawns.

The decor is light and simple. Beautiful artwork on the ceiling

The delicate oysters from from Marenne-Oleron, world famous for its cultivation of oysters on the coast of Charente-Maritime. The combined growing and refinement area covers about 6,000 hectares where more than 60,000 metric tons of oysters are produced. Actually, production accounts for 45% of the entire French oyster industry.

Set in a small spot with 6 tables and a tiny wine bar, the pale blue and white dining room makes you feel as if you were on the French coast, hearing the waves bashing against the rocks. A real maritime feel. You have a choice between Number 1, 2 and 3 oysters and ranging in different sizes of platters.

Since it was a quick stop before dinner; we decided to have 6 but platters can go up to as much as 20 if you’d like. 

See the owner; no not named Régis, at work. He doesn’t even look at the oyster, he just feels it.
He’s been doing this for more than 20 years, but only opened the small join for 6 years. Paris By Mouth recently named this place the number 1 place (out of 5) in Paris to have great oysters. Check out Paris By Mouth Five Great Places for Oysters.
Like most oyster bars, Huîtrerie Régis closes for the summer. If you’re up for a light meal matched with fresh oysters and Sancerre wine; try to come during the winter/late spring time.
