The oyster bar

The oyster bar at Café de la Paix offers you a selection of outstanding seafood and shellfish.

Oysters, lobsters, langoustines and a great many other sea products are prepared upon request by our shellfish waiter Arezki Ounissi, who won the Second Prize 2007 and the Grand Prize 2008 in the Léon Beyer Cup at the European Oyster Opening Contest. He was also awarded the insignia of Knight of Agricultural Valour in 2010 at the same contest.

This expert has the utmost respect for sea products, to ensure that you can enjoy the full range of their flavours. This has been vouched for by Honorary Food Inspector René Zakine, who handed him that prestigious award, saying “You have been faithful to this sea product” (oysters). 

The oyster bar is open from Mondays to Sundays from noon to 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm to 11:30 pm.

Seafood platters also available to go.
