After all the positive reviews, we thought we were in for a great meal. The service was good, wine was good, but the food was really pretty ordinary. Started with a very nice apertiser, the entrees were just ok, but the mains were a disappointment, a rather tasteless roast duck and the tuna which was overlooked with a strange sort... More

This is a small restaurant with seating outside on a charming pedestrian street. There is just one very busy but extremely pleasant waitress/hostess serving all the tables. There is not too much choice on the menu but the dishes were really excellent. Delightful!

This little gem of a restaurant really is one of La Rochelle's best kept secrets. Tucked away on the Rue Bletterie in the Vieux Port, this small eaterie uses organic produce to create superb meals artfully plated and served by the waiting staff of one (I told you it was small). There are only five or six covers and everything... More

When you enter this restaurant, with its 16 to 20 seats, large tables and furniture from another century you do not know what to expect. There is no a la carte choices and the menu gives one two entries and two mains to choose from. However, there are about half a dozen deserts. Once you settle and service starts you... More

This is a very pleasant restaurant serving thoughtful food. Not the usual steak frites and mousse au chocolate. A very pleasant woman did all the serving at tables. She was courteous and informative about the food. We would definitely eat here again. Good value too!!!

Found this resto on TripAdvisor and liked the sound of it, exceeded expectations by a mile. The maitre d' was an angel and couldn't do enough for my disabled mother. Endlessly cheerful and helpful, and with great English, he transformed a very good meal into an exceptional experience that I'll never forget. He broke the mould of haughty French waiting... More

My husband and I had a wonderful meal in this small, intimate restaurant. The waiter spoke English very well. The bread was homemade, and the menu was small and daily. Over all our whole meal - 4 courses (2 of them shared) and a drink each was about $60....and great deal for a romantic date night.

Dined at this restaurant last weekend for our wedding anniversary. I can honestly say this is one of the nicest meals I have ever had with lovely, friendly service as well. We hadn't made a reservation but as it was quite a nice evening we opted to eat outside rather than go elsewhere. We had the set menu with three... More
