For over 70 years, le Bar Andre has welcomed diners aboard a ship "moored" at the foot of the towers in the old port of La Rochelle. The menu mirrors the restaurant, an abundance of the sea's treasures. The seafood and shellfish arrive daily direct from the local fish market. Like the two towers, Le Bar Andre is a La Rochelle landmark, embarking its clientele on a delicious seafarer's journey.--Situe sur le vieux port de La Rochelle, au pied des tours, le Bar Andre vous accueille depuis plus de 70 ans dans un "navire amarre" aux multiples ambiances. La carte est a l'image du restaurant qui defend corps et ames les joyaux de la mer. Les fruits de mer et coquillages arrivent donc quotidiennement en direct de la criee locale rochelaise. A l'instar des deux tours, le Bar Andre est une figure incontournable de la Rochelle qui embarque ses clients pour un voyage aux saveurs marines.

Good, but not great...

We decided to eat here as it seemed very similar to all the other places in La Rochelle but it had been rated in Lonely Planet and in another guide book. It was obviously very popular as I think we got the last table outside before you had to wait. One party had booked a 12 person table and only... read more

Since we arrived to La Rochelle, we were craving for oysters and wine. During our walk around the vieux port, we decided to have a light dinner somewhere nearby. The major thing we were looking for was oysters, so having looked at the menu of Andre, we stayed in. The waitress was very nice, suggesting us to try different types... More

We are a group of 8 friends who at at Le Bar André last Friday night. The place is nice enough, with a good selection office and fruits de mer in a good location close to the harbour. I would say that it is somewhat overpriced (€80 per head) but I guess that is to be expected in such a... More

My husband & I were wanting some good seafood and our hotel sent us to Andre. It's an upscale restaurant with good food and good wine. They have menus in English and some of the staff speak English. We both had seabass and it was very good. Some friends who were seated nearby had a very large appetizer of assorted... More

The quality of the fish and the friendly staff is only matched by the kitchen. We had a great meal at a fair price given the quality of the food. Will be back.

We have visited Andre's on several occasions but have not been for 7 or 8 years and were worried that the standards had dropped following some of the recent negative reviews on here recently.

I must admit that I am a long time fan of this restaurant and even make trips to La Rochelle just to dine here! Fresh seafood galore, a fantastic choice of shellfish platters (Meli-Melo is a favorite), helpful service and old port location make it a great choice!

The staff is very nice and helpful. The food is good, good portions and well prepared. The house wine was great. Just thought it was a bit expensive for what it was.
