Restaurant recommended by locals, it's located on the pier but away from the tourist traps that overcharge you. We were welcomed by the owner who gave friendly advice on the surroundings. Good food for an average of 25 euros per person.

There are a lot of great restaurants in La Rochelle and it can be difficult to make a choice over where to go for dinner. What sets them apart is the atmosphere and the service. This restaurant literally oozes atmosphere and the service was exceptional. The owner is the chef and his extremely proud wife is one of the main... More

The mussels dish had very small mussels and the sauce wasn't very tasty. The grilled fish was alright. Service was good. Good location. Overall, for the price, it was average.

Excellent food, reasonably priced and friendly, efficient staff. The location is just off the harbour and booking is advised after 19:00 Could not be better, I suppose.

Four of us had a three course meal. Situated with a great view of the old port and the towers. The oysters for starters were lovely as were the salad starter and the other seafood ones. Three of us had the fish-a superbly cooked white fish with lovely accompaniments. The creme brulee was out of this world. House wine was... More

Next to the food, people watching is the true summer experience here - thus an outside table is a must. A family run restaurant offering friendly and efficient service. Their fare is the typical French summer menu - a few fish dishes, a few meat dishes, some salads. But tasty and enjoyable.
