Huitrerie Régis, the pocket-sized establishment (with room for 20 people at the most, including the outdoor tables) right in the middle of Left Bank is one of Paris' best-known places for oysters. There's not much more than really great Breton oysters on the menu, usually about four varieties in two or three sizes to choose from. The oysters are served on ice from a silver platter and are, of course, accompanied by wonderful bread, butter, mignonette sauce and the ubiquitous glass of wine. Think Sancerre, Muscadet, Pouilly-Fumé and Chablis wines – all of which go together well with oysters. The small space is filled with light, allowing the oysters and lemon to shine as the only decorative elements. And, since the tables are squeezed together quite tightly, the conversations also tend to centre on oysters, which gives the place additional intimacy and charm. If you happen to find a free table hereduring a month containing the letter “r” (that is, during oyster season), believe us, the next time you come to Paris, you'll definitely make a point of coming back to the Huitrerie Régis, because you will have learned that there is a difference between oysters and Oysters. And also, because the very ritual of enjoying an oyster is so Parisian.
