We had a lovely meal here in mid-April. Both took the 3 course set menu which proved to be exceptional value. Had the local wine which was good and inexpensive. Service was really friendly. Had the snails and mushrooms + Roquefort and pear tart for starters - couldn't fault either and the snails were very good. For mains it was... More

Service with no fuss and professional, pleasant décor with bright but not blinding light, food was the best I had after trying 6 different restaurants in that same area, a little more expensive than some others but well worth it, Would love to go back on my next trip.

This is my go to restaurant in La Rochelle. I make sure to visit for dinner at least once every time I get to this area. The food and service never disappoint. The fixed price options are varied, offering something for every food preference. Their fresh local seafood items are tasty and perfectly prepared. Do not miss their fish soup!

This is a classy little restaurant - we ate outside, it gets very busy quite early in the evening. We had a set meal and all three courses were excellent. The waiter & waitress were very attentive throughout the meal. My daughter and her family dined there a few days later and also enjoyed it immensely .

We ate at 4 different restaurants on the Rue St-Jean-du-Pérot in the course of our week stay. I have reviewed them all on TripAdvisor, but the bottom line is that this was the best (albeit priciest) meal we had. I understand from a dining local that this is one of the independent restaurants on the road, many others being owned... More

Fantastic meal at La Petite Auberge this evening. My husbands sardine and tomato starter had a real zing and my smoked salmon was accompanied by a fresh and very tasty celery and apple remoulade. Main courses of entrecôte and magret were superb. Great atmosphere and a swift turnover of clientele. Festival of Fictional TV on this weekend so we were... More

This place was okay without being startling. My bream was well cooked and I enjoyed the "pain perdu", which was a little unusual. The serving staff were very pleasant and we ate here twice in a week. I would be happy to recommend it

Two visits during this trip to La Rochelle and it was just as good as we remembered. We had not booked the first night so had to get there early because it quickly fills up outside, inside and on the first floor, which tells you something. Selected from the 3 course 29 euro menu and the food was excellent, so... More

We ate at this restaurant several times on a recent holiday in La Rochelle, as we found it to have the most appealing menu and the most consistently high quality, with a pleasant ambience. We tried a number of fish-based starters and mains, all excellent, while the entrecote steak was a delight (served with the fat untrimmed, but in my... More
