Amazing food, but pricy though.

The location is prime and the food was amazing. We tried two seafood dishes, both were nicely prepared and presented. We enjoyed the food and the service. We also tried their selection of cheese, which was pleasure to the palate. The only down size is the price, the average price of a dish was... read more

Gregory is a member of the supremely talented Coutanceau family, who own several excellent establishments in La Rochelle. Les Flots has pole position on the ancient port, just next to the chain tower at the port entrance. With the location, the view, the superbly attentive and professional staff, it lacks nothing for a great dining experience, had the meal been... More

The restaurant is well situated in the old for of La Rochelle with great views. We have eaten here several times and have always had a great meal. This time we had lunch which was excellent at a reasonable, for this quality, €29 fixed price. The service is excellent, relaxed and this is a good alternative to the Michelin starred... More

We ate here during our stay in LR as we quite liked the what was on the menu compared to other places nearby. The food was good, but unmemorable (but then we find a lot of French food like that these days). The service was a little slow as they were very busy and wasn't particularly friendly.

Little sister to the two-star Michelin restaurant down the road. Located right in the old town, the service is impeccable and the food delicious.

I thoroughly enjoyed this meal. The starter was fresh and new to me. Something completely different that I had never had before. This was my last night so wanted to have a nice high quality meal with good service and a nice location. The prices were not too expensive for me in all honesty probably because of the exchange rate... More

Service was a little over the top, too many staff members coming and going and asking us the same questions. Food was very good but really on the expensive side, maybe because the chef / owner is the son of a Michelin star chef in the same town...? Wines were really expensive.

This is a celeb chef resto and it lives up to its reputation. Great location, great food. The desert was a work of art. Bu when you spend about €150 per person you don't expect half a glass of champagne poured as an apero and then waitress goes off to get another bottle and is delayed by a large group.... More

We had two lovely meals at this place. It's in a fantastic location on the old port of La Rochelle. There are some great restaurants there and this is one of the best. Les Flots is part of a small chain but we were in La Rochelle for only three days so we're unable to go to the others but... More
