We decided to treat ourselves to a meal here while staying in La Rochelle on our honeymoon. We turned up at about 8pm and despite the place being fully booked the staff managed to rearrange and find us a table outside overlooking the harbour. We both decided to go for the set menu which was real treat, we had delicious... More

This place was recommended to me and i was not disappointed.,but you have to have a full wallet.Staff were polite and although i speak reasonable french they were happy to speak english if i preferred. The starters were expensive at 27 euros so i went straight to the main course. The fish was superb and served with clever vegetables. Dessert... More

To start, the meal for four people with one bottle of average priced wine and two beers was 338 euros. Two of us ordered the sea bass, when it arrived, the waiter proceeded to tell us not to eat the pastry, and the green that was underneath it, as this was there to soak up the salt. I ate some...

it is easy to have full house in the middle of the crowd. if you don't mind paying 50 Euros for a three course meal then you find above average french cuisine. Female staff is polite, but not allowed to fully service the guests. forget about the male staff: unpolite, rude and incompetent. Care for wine? if you like it... More

If you are looking for the best then look no further, Les Flots Restaurant is simply stunning, staff are attentive, you will enjoy the best of everything. Menu is varied and caters for all tastes to a high level of sophistication and execution. You will pay for this though but it is worth it, every last centime!

Superb position overlooking the harbour and nice relaxed ambience, made it very easy to walk in and ask for a table, which they duly obliged. The food has to be good for the prices and the standing of this restaurant, and it certainly was. The beef amuse bouche might have deserved a check by the chef, but this can be... More

We went there for dinner to celebrate a special anniversary. Our expectations were fully fulfilled: the menu gastronomique was very delicious, the service extremely professional, but also sympathetic and very friendly. The wine recommendation was very good. The price is certainly on the high side, but to celebrate a special event, I can really recommend it.

The price (Euro 260 for two) , the generally excellent , solicitous service , and the high end accoutrements suggest that this well located restaurant is pitching for a Michelin star. At present it doesn't have one and rightly so. The dishes (main courses around Euro 35 each) were nicely assembled but fairly basic. I had a starter of turbot... More
