Clamato is a seafood-focused small plates restaurant from Bertrand Grébaut of Septime. Expect pristine marinated fish, platters of oysters, silky crab fritters (accrabes), and maple syrup pie for dessert. Wines are natural and well-selected, just like at Septime. We included Clamato in among our recommendations for where to go for seafood in Paris.

Le Fooding (2019) isn’t shy about ocean metaphors in describing the seafood plates at this “brutally sleek” restaurant, noting they “provoke a tsunami of the senses.”

Ruth Reichl (2014) “It’s a terrific little place, very simple… and the best looking waiters you’ve ever seen… The food itself has an admirable precision; everything feels beautifully sourced and extremely well thought out.”

Simon Says (2014) “Abécédaires, plaisantes, ailées… ambiance de foodies embastillés, service allègre.”

John Talbott (2014) “Every one of our 10 dishes was different, flavorful, inventive and intelligent.”

Paris Bouge (2013) “Comme les concepts de bars à poissons qui cartonnent à New-York, l’adresse en a repris tous les codes : un bar où l’on peut dîner sur un tabouret, des petites tables en alcôve pour un tête-à-tête entre amis et puis surtout la préparation des ceviches (plats à base de poissons crus marinés) sous vos yeux.”

John Talbott (2013) “Wonderful product, wonderful staff, wonderful experience. But? No buts.”

Le Fooding (2013) “Et avec, surtout, par petites touches tueuses, du cru brut de mer et d’estuaire (huîtres d’Utah Beach ou de Maldon accompagnées de tabasco maison, de vinaigre de rancio-échalotes et de beurre sur tranches de miche signée Landemaine, 16-18 €), du pas cuit finement paré au bar par la Québécoise Erika (tartare veau-huître avec feuilles d’estragon et chips maison; dorade royale au leche de tigre et framboises fraîches; saint-jacques, potimaron et zestes de cédrat…) et du cambusé de première classe (couteaux au beurre d’herbes et amandes; anguille fumée, cocos et graines; «acrabes» et sauce huankaina…).”

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2013) “Cements their reputation as the standard-bearers for fine contemporary French restaurateurism, unself-conscious and ungimmicky. Clamato’s stellar cuisine is accompanied by the same well-selected natural wines and polished service…”

    We happened to walk by Clamato on the way to Pere Lachaise during the first week of our five weeks in Paris. I recalled reading a review here and also that a friend had recommended it so we stopped by for lunch. We absolutely loved every dish we had (except for the raw clams!) and returned three more times during our trip. The tarama is a must have and we loved that in addition to interesting seafood, Clamato also offered amazing vegetable dishes. I would highly recommend Clamato to anyone visiting Paris.
