The baby sister of Septime, Clamato demonstrates the same quality and care of its sibling in a more infomal setting.
Focusing on fish and fresh produce, it is a small-plates restaurant which doesn’t take bookings. Try your luck, walk in, put your name down and cross the street to their wine bar, La Cave, for an excellent glass of wine in the meantime. Menus change according to the season. We had raw dorade with golden beetroot, raspberries and marigold leaves; a beautifully fresh ceviche; squid with sorrel sauce that we couldn’t resist sopping up with their dark, sour bread. Desserts rotate too, though if the maple syrup tart is on the menu it is a must! Served with pillowy whipped cream…mmm! Portions are small,but prices are very reasonable. And staff are very happy to explain the menu and any obscure French words.
Closed Mon/Tue; Open Wed/Thu/Fri: 7pm til 11pm, Sat/Sun: 12-11pm
