We made our booking for 20 cyclists via the web and the communication was very good. It was not an unknown to us as we had eaten there on the previous years tour to La Rochelle. The service was up to its usual excellent standard as was the food. We wanted a set menu for €30 excluding drinks and the... More

We had a fabulous meal in this restaurant serving mainly fish,we ate scallops and a salmon tartare, sea bass on a base of leek, potato and crab, monkfish with ginger and delicious dessert gourmands washed down with a Sancerre. The staff were brisk and efficient on a busy Friday evenings service.

This is probably our sixth visit as we live in the town and the experience is actually getting better. Great food, friendly service and a central location 20 from the back of the market make this our favourite place to eat in town. Fish lovers get a treat but there are options for other tastes too.

Last time we only took a dessert, and this time we were back as we liked this place. And this was a good idea. Very good welcome, we took a starter and main dish (for me cassolette of Scallops, and for my wife a fish). This was very good, tasty, perfectly cooked, and with a good white wine from Fiefs... More

Had an excellent meal, was glad we had booked as the restaurant was fully occupied and a number of people were turn away at the door. Starters of oysters and tartare salmon were perfect, both of us had delicious mingling for the mains - best meal for a long time.

We wanted to get away from the Port area as we reckoned we would get better food and value near the market. Saw this place during the day and booked for the evening. Even though English was not strong, every effort was made to explain menu. We both had crab starter, very tasty. I had filet steak, which was exceptionally... More

Starters of goat's cheese and fois gras. Steak with mushrooms very tasty. Local fish (name unfamiliar) served in a coconut milk based sauce was most interesting. Apple tart with ice cream and a creme brulee both pretty flawless. All for less than €30 excluding wine. Attentive and charming waiter who struggled manfully to answer all our questions in English of... More

Well cooked, well presented food without any fuss. My four year old son was offered grilled fish (Dorada I think) with the best mash ever. I would have been happy with that alone. My sea-bass and husbands fillet of beef were both amazing. Would definately return on our next visit.

It's always a lottery when you walk into a French restaurant whether you'll be treated with utter disdain or like a valued regular. There's rarely much in the middle. Here we were warmly greeted from the minute we opened the door and enjoyed attentive, friendly and helpful service throughout. Excellent fresh fish and a great atmosphere. Well off the beaten...

Away from the main restaurant alleys and around the corner from the covered market this restaurant gave us a real feel of local fare, with the fun of challenging ourselves over translating the menu! Dropping in during the beginning of September I was expecting the place to be packed but a Tuesday night meant we got a mix of locals... More
