Our Dining Experience

Exceptional produce, an inviting selection of wines,
all in a traditional waterside location…

To access our terrace at the edge of the étang de Thau, you first pass through the hubbub of our workshop. A fascinating experience in itself… the tang of the sea; the bustle of work in an authentic environment; the smell of freshness in the air; and the buzz of being at the heart of our daily production.

Stepping out on to the terrace, you leave our world of work behind and enter a secluded, flower-decked oasis right on the water.

And relax… let the étang weave its spell and be tempted by our just-arrived daily harvest.

Our wish is for you to enjoy your dining adventure in close proximity to our working world. A truly immersive seafood experience at the heart of our oyster and mussel heritage.

We have brought together our two overriding passions: shellfish and wine. We bring you the best of the sea and the land, together. A simple yet mouth-watering combination.

So why not try something less ordinary? A truly authentic experience, with us, the producers … on the banks of the étang de Thau.

You may just be surprised!

Our Story

Laurent Arcella, 15 times a winner of prestigious national awards, represents the third generation of his family to continue in the tradition of farming shellfish of the highest quality.

Though always staying close to his locality, Laurent’s produce is nonetheless available to sample at most of the major trade events in France such as the Summer and Winter Shows at Montpellier; the Salon Regal at Toulouse; and the Salon de l’Agriculture in Paris.

From his production base, Atelier & Co, Laurent offers oysters of the highest quality, to eat in-situ or to take away. With a guarantee of meticulous methods of production and of a know-how that brings out the best in their flavours, his carefully nurtured oysters can be traced from birth to harvest.

Visit us at Atelier & Co at Loupian, Zone Conchylicole Ouest (Oyster Production Zone West).
We are open from April to October.
