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.

We dined at Andre two nights in succession. It was busy and atmospheric and it was possible to be 'outside' on the terrace and still enjoy some shelter. The fixed-price menu at 22 euros for three courses was very good value for money. The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked - we enjoyed especially the Merlu (Hake). Lots of other... More

Slightly expensive but delicious. Short list, so after a few visits limited choice but ALWAYS fresh DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH AT ALL, a shame for that type of place / price, the only negative point for that place.

In fact, the service was better than the food and the food was very good indeed. I've not been to Bar André for years, but it was as good as I remember. The menu is not extensive and is pretty much entirely sea-food based, but there is also a menu du jour which represents excellent value and included - this... More

We had the lunchtime set menu starting with moules followed by a couple of the fish of the day options. The staff were friendly and the fish was beautifully cooked, so we were happy and the set lunch price of EUR 22 per person for three courses (excluding drinks) seemed like a good deal given the quality of the food...

Everyone recommends this restaurant but having eaten in it twice I can't see why. It seems they have a 'name' locally but in fact the offerings are much the same as the other restaurants to left and right. Menu much the same, prices much the same, and on the second visit it took 20 minutes to get the bill despite... More

I didn't like the place at all, but went there with a group. It's all very populistic and touristic decorated and not really giving you much genuine atmosphere. But must admit the food was quite OK and even being a group at nearly 20 people all logistic went very well. The lady serving us was nice and friendly and a... More
