Gillardeau oysters
the benchmark since 1898

huitres gillardeau avec gravure


Founded in 1898 by Henri Gillardeau in the Marennes-Oléron basin, Maison Gillardeau is renowned for the exceptional quality of its oysters, cultivated through a centuries-old family commitment.

In response to growing worldwide demand for its special oysters, the company has opened a number of oyster beds since 2004 in pristine European locations. Gillardeau special oysters are bred in the rich waters of Ireland, Normandy and Portugal for optimum growth, fleshiness and taste. To guarantee this quality to the finest tables, the laser engraving of Gillardeau oysters to combat counterfeiting has consolidated the brand and confirmed Gillardeau as a benchmark.

Constantly striving for innovation, developments have included “La Marcelle”, a modern food truck, and “La Cabanajam”, a sales outlet on the Île de Ré.
