Fabulous lunch

On a rainy day in La Rochelle we came across this restaurant for lunch and what a find! We had the lunch time set fish menu for 29 euros. The food was exceptional and service good. The wine menu is a little pricey but quality wines. With coffee our bill was less than 120 euros but I guess if you... read more

Can not fault the food and service . We had the set menu at 49 euro per person which was excellent value . Most of the wines are expensive but we have a nice white . We also had extras I.e 6 oyster prior to the main meal . Gluttony but well worth the extra . Recommend a visit seat... More

Ambiance and view is wonderful but sadly let down by the food and the quite frankly snooty attitude of the staff. My langustin stuffed in squid was destroyed by a near cabbage flavour from a radish sorbet. My main course I sent back as it was inedible due to too much salt. My wife's meal was about ok . The...

On tour, highly trip advisor rated marina restaurant. My wife is vegatarian, and they prepared taste and 3 dishes all with 4 or 5 items complimenting the taste. I had a tasting menu with Bordeaux matching wines. This wad As good a meal as we have ever had, and we travel and eat at the best restaurants!

I find it hard to imagine how anyone could possibly give this restaurant less than 4 out of five. We stayed in La Rochelle for 8 nights and this was one of the highlights of our stay Excellent food, excellent service. One slight de traction - the wines were a little overpriced in our opinion, and we speak fluent French!

As Tripadvisor has grown so the necessity to learn to read between the lines has become essential! If there are really 46 BETTER restaurants in La Rochelle then I'll happily retire to a monastery. The whole experience was brilliant. Obviously being a seaside town, fish and shellfish are going to be a mainstay but to prepare them in such imaginative... More

We were several times in this very nice restaurant just by the harbour and it was, as usual, a good choice. The restaurant is very elegantly decorated and the room sounds quite quiet. The food : fresh, tastefully presented and wonderfully cooked. It was a pity to eat : dishes looked like art masterpieces ! The service is professional and... More

Not a very warm welcome and not very attentive. A number of the dishes were not well seasoned. My wife's two large prawns on a huge bed of tinned mashed pineapple was exceptionally poor especially at a price of 37 euros! The only good part of the meal was the two desserts. The wine list was nothing special apart from... More

We tried a lot of oysters on our drive up along the Atlantic coast, and this place serves up the best oysters hands-down. The rest of the dishes are all good and we would not hesitate to return. Price point is slightly higher than the surroundings but you can see why. The ambience is definitely more formal than the other... More

“Les Flots” is owned by Gregory Coutanceau, one of La Rochelle’s foremost restaurateurs. His brother, Christopher, took on the original, Michelin starred, “Coutanceau” restaurant from their father. The un-starred “Les Flots” is therefore apparently not in the same category as the brother’s place. We had tried to get in there, but it was full. The difference between the brothers is... More
