Set almost in the shadows of the port entrance towers, Le P'tit Amiral is a very good restaurant in a great location. The nautical theme is very well done and it's worth seeking out amongst the plethora of eateries in the area. It was quiet when I popped in to book a table for 30 minutes later but it was... More

We had a nice meal on our first night in La Rochelle. We had the 3 course fixed price menu which was nicely presented and was a reasonable price. The staff were friendly and very helpful. A nice meal and would recommend.

The Good: Service was slick with some very helpful waiters. The price is reasonable and the location is very good. I had beef and chips which was tasty and my partner loved the massive portion of mussels. The Bad: Prawns are served whole (heads and tracks still on) which isn't a massive issue, but is somewhat 80s. The wine selection... More

Loads of places to choose from. Went for this one and really glad we give. Started with Salmon followed by veal,with carafe of house rose. Would go there again. Water really good and kept talking to us in French. Even though we know he could speak English. Just what we wanted. Great food and good value.

Chose this restaurant from a large number available in La Rochelle. We were not disappointed. The place has a very nautical air, pleasantly decorated and spotlessly clean. The staff are very efficient and attentive. The food was excellent. I had Salad des Gesiers followed by Moules/Frites my wife had Moules/Frites followed by Creme Caramel. All excellent dishes and well cooked.... More

Been an annual visitor to La Rochelle many years. It's a good overnight stop on our way to the Channel Ports. Dozens of very good restaurants and a lot of mediocre ones too. At last we have found 'our place' It's just wonderful. We haven't tried all the local restaurants but can say with absolute certainty that this is by... More

We had been to this restaurant last year and remembered it as being really nice so had to try it again. We weren’t disappointed. What a lovely restaurant – nice decor, friendly staff and quality food. A nautical theme with some really interesting paintings gave a nice ambience to the place. The restaurant was busy with locals – always a... More
