  • On a visit on the eve of the closure, the team is always smiling. Introduction to the opening of great oysters nice and more you find good addresses to buy oysters. The discovery of the cabins is very teacher and like many children. Don't delay.

  • Educational, informative. We spent 4 hours on this site without seeing the time passing! What about Delphine who loves his job and makes us share the range of work of oyster humorously. Not to be missed

  • This very disappointing city is difficult to access. This city is not very well accessible! Staff not welcoming and hard to explain! Bikes are not all well equipped and they lack size. Passages which are dirty disappointing animations. This city is not worth price. Not recommended!

  • Pleasantly surprised by the provision. Table well presented in a setting and views of oyster basins. Very good value for money. €16 meal with mussels fried 1/4 wine and whelks. As part of the visit of the city of oysters expected a trap for tourists but not at all. REALLY GREAT

  • The restaurant "The clear" to the city of the oyster to MARENNES is a very nice place, spacious and quiet. The prices are very reasonable. I had the chance to taste a dish of cuttlefish, extra as a dish of the day. Welcome and very friendly service.

  • Check out bike, visit very educational site made by a typical wholesaler (Biloute comments are very picturesque) that takes through it the entire process of breeding, ballads in the very nature channels. Very friendly staff...

  • Learn all about the oyster of his livestock to his tasting. The explanations were clear and interesting. Unfortunately, most bike available but a shuttle bus with the very friendly driver (he did not hesitate to expect while we went in high season) nice Restaurant and at relatively fair prices.
