Fruite de Mer in Paris (and Boulogne)

One of my favourite types of French food is Fruite De Mer (you know, the cold sea food platter with oysters, shrimps, crab, cockles etc that is served in layers like a wedding cake - usually there's a man outside who is dressed like a pathologist doing a post mortem).

As I'm off to Paris for the day next Friday does anybody know where it's really good in Paris? It's not the oysters so much as the variety of fresh seafood on the platter.

Strangely enough I had it in Rick Stein's in Padstow, which is considered the best sea food restaurant in Britain, and it was not good - I suppose there isn't the demand (therefore the turnover) for such a dish in England which requires ultra-fresh ingredients.

Also I go over to Boulogne quite a bit so if anyone knows a good Fruites De Mer restaurant in that region let me know (I know the 2 Etaples restaurants and their great).

Can anybody help me?
