Gustine, a haven for picky eaters, is usually packed at lunchtime, since they offer diners the opportunity to create a custom delicious sandwich. Of course, you start by choosing your bread, of which they have a huge variety. On chilly days, go for a freshly made warm meal or indulge in their signature brownie.

If you’ve ever wondered what fancy dining on the inside of a ship would look like, you must visit Le Crabe Fantôme. Its several dining chambers are decorated in a style that that can only be described as ‘fisherman chic’, and each room has a nautically themed name, like the captain’s quarters, the promenade deck, the fisherman’s quarters and the bridge. You can also enjoy your seafood on the heated outdoor terrace.
