Clamato in Paris is a super chic seafood restaurant dedicated to seafood lovers!

The interior design is rustle but cosy, with wood being the main theme of the restaurant and very stylish staff readily at your service. You can try wild oysters sent from Ireland or Brittany and all sorts of delicate shellfish at reasonable price (6 oysters for 16-18€). They also have an incredible selection of wine waiting for you to try! The atmosphere is quite laid-back but ideal for a romantic and casual evening in Paris.
