Besides oysters, you find the best Seafood at Indarsena's (Warty Venus, Saltwater Clams, Dog Cockles, Whelks, Common Periwinkles, Urchins, the odd Sea Figs, the nowhere to be found Goose Barnacle and the Abalones...) but also wonderful cooked Shellfishes (Brown Crab, Lobster, Madagascar Prawns, Shrimps, and the fabulous King Crab – legs and nippers of the Giant Crab from Alaska seas, to be enjoyed in the american way with melted butter...).
At Indarsena's, the two or three level Plateaux are prepared on a special counter in the center of the dining room. The spectacular nature of this preparation is sublimated by the écaillers' skillfulness who open oysters and seafood at sight; it allows customers to follow the elaboration of their own Plateau. The range of top fresh products coming from France goes from the “Aperitif”, with a glass of wine and a dish of oysters or prawns or a fish carpaccio, to the Dinner with Plateaux for all tastes (… and all budgets). For the one who does not eat oysters, there are the Soupe de Poisson, the fresh or smoked fish Carpaccio, the cooked shellfishes, the Salmon Pearls, the French Cheeses and wonderful desserts from the best genoese cake shops. And the lazy ones can take home the Sea thanks to the take-away meals...
