This is another address that has made it into all of the guides, both French and foreign. It's not specifically a fish restaurant, it's just located in a former poissonerie (or fish monger's) and retains its original mosaic tiled exterior. But they do a lot of great fish dishes, light and fresh with lots of veggies. The fact that the co-owners are from New Zealand and the US might explain the healthy-conscious menu and the casual-friendly atmosphere,but this isn't a tourist-only venue. The duo also own a wine boutique around the corner (La Dernière Goutte), so expect some great vintages on the wine list. It's best to reserve, as there aren't many tables.
