Oyster bar
L'Huitrade

Oyster -loving, three-star chef Guy Savoy has created a delicious grand finale to any stroll up the Champs Élysées. This charming little bar designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte is the perfect place for a casual but delicious lunch or dinner of the best French bivalves.

Five of the best oyster producers in France supply this pocket-sized restaurant, which has counter seating for 12 at a counter and a single table of four: Yvon Madec (Prat-Ar-Coum), David Hervé (Marennes-Oléron), Joël Dupuch (Basin d’Arcachon), Gillardeau (Marennes-Oléron), and Florie and Florent Tarbouriech (Étang de Thau). Other producers will also be showcased from time-to-time.

Places at the counter can only be booked at 11.45am and 6.45pm, but the table for four is always available. There’s a great selection of white wines and a single superb dessert, a brioche feuilletée with candied fruit and vanilla ice cream.
