Description: 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.

When we started to complain & they amazingly found us our table !... More

Just got back from a lovely dinner at "Le bar Andre". Big restaurant that is divided into 3 smaller restaurants yet with shared kitchen, we went for the small back street restaurant which has much more charm then the modern typical "modern pavement restaurant feel" as the back side is onto a small street full of restaurants, we were even...

They must churn out hundreds of meals a day. One would expect mediocre quality and that is exactly what you get. The prices are very high for the quality you get. Service is fine. Would not recommend. Mind you you might find there are a whole bunch of tourist type expensive mediocre food in what is now a run down... More

This place really doesn't need an endorsement..it is great for seafood and general ambience. Service was excellent with good suggestions and very professional staff. The house wine is all you need to accompany the fruits de mer.Highly recommended.

Perfect location in a street full of restaurants. If you like fruit de mer then this is the place. Expect to spend around 50E per person. Oysters are very fresh, and there are good choice of other fish and seafood dishes. Lobsters are live in tanks until you order!

We booked ahead and were rewarded with table by the pavement which allowed us to people-watch as we ate.. Superb seafood, attentive service. Desserts equally memorable. Expensive, but would easily have been able to save if I hadn't had multiple oysters,lobster etc!

Great place for fish and shell food. We had the most expensive shell fish platter which was very nice but not terrific value for the price. Still, the quality was good as as the service which is included in the bill.

One big advantage of this place is that they don't allow smoking on the terrace. Often the pleasure of dining in the open is ruined by the smoke wafting over from inconsiderate smokers. The food is good, and the staff are pleasant, efficient and friendly. Prices are comparable with other restaurants in the vicinity. We enjoyed our dinner and the... More

From the gazpacho aperitif, through to the fish platter, quality was the order. As an avid fish eater I'm fairly good at judging whether or not the main ingredient is fresh or not. No doubts here...it was just as if it was being caught as we ordered. The waiting staff were very polite and helpful, especially to my sons who... More
