An oyster cabin at the mouth of Port d’Andernos, with a very earthy feel. At Joël Lahaye’s spot, you can forget about any non-GMO triploid oysters… They’ve harvested nothing but natural oysters here for three generations now, grown in the Parcs du Bassin oyster parks in Le Courbey, the southern tip of the Île aux Oiseaux, across from L’Herbe. The result? In late August, they’re already nice and juicy and ready to be gobbled up. Still hungry? Order some whelks with aioli, periwinkles, pink shrimp, local Berninet pâté and a glass of white wine. Long live life’s simple pleasures! // Ringo de Balmalon 

FEELING THIRSTY? : Côtes-de-Duras white at €3 a glass, €16 a bottle.  
PRICE: : Oysters €9-15 for a dozen depending on the size, shrimp, periwinkles €8, whelks €9, pâté €5-7.
