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.

The seafood here is always fresh, you can watch the shellfish being prepared as you stroll by on the street. Service, especially for non-French speakers tends to be slow and indifferent if not outright rude. Prices tend to be high and there are better places that give more value for your Euro

The food was second to none, the service from our waiter was perfect. We were staying at the St Jean d'Acre next door and they recommended we go there for dinner. Very good recommendation.

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.

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!
