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

The food in this restaurant was out of this world. Four of us went and had the "Menu du Marche" 43 euros each. Worth every penny or cent. Really really recommend. Wonderful service too.

We were recently on a cruise from Amsterdam to Barcelona and stopped in La Rochelle along the way. We had lunch at this restaurant while we were in port and were quite impressed with the quality of the food and professional service throughout the entire meal. The weather was very pleasant so we were able to have lunch outdoors on... More

Viewing the port of La Rochelle we had an excellent diner. Staff was very friendly and the food superb. We tried turbot and langoustines. We finish our diner with delicious abricot. We definite have to come buck one day.

Les Flots was recommended to us by a good French friend. I have to say the restaurant has a fantastic location overlooking the port. We arrived and sat on the terrace, and immediately got the impression that the waiters and front of house manager were quite pretentious, whispering and watching as we made our selection from the menu. It is... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by the hotel and I do not regret the choice. The food was extremely delicate and refined, the service attentive and nice.
