Totally recommended - best meal in La Rochelle by far

Having been in La Rochelle for a week, using trip advisor for restaurants local to our apartment, we found ourselves here purely because our choice was closed. What a find. English speaking staff & menu definitely helped but the food was undoubtedly the best we have had since we have been here... read more

My wife and I had an excellent lunch here whilst on a day out in La Rochelle. The restaurant is family run and the food is fantastic. Not too expensive. Best to arrive early as it gets very busy by 12.30/1.00pm.

As previously said, it is worth moving away from the main tourist drag to find much better meals. This place was buzzing and lively. No amuse bouche. Entrees of carpaccio smoked duck, and minestrone with vegetables,scallops and crevettes were very good. Mains of scallops also included vegetables- beans, mange tu and potatoes, was well cooked. My main was steak, which... More

We had a fantastic lunch at Le Cabanon. The service is first class, very quick & attentive. We had Sea Bass which was excellent & good value as part of the lunch menu. This restaurant is well worth a visit you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic, fresh beautifully presented food. Excellent value, great location next to the market and full of locals...skip the touristed places by the port and head here instead. Family friendly also.

We recently stayed a few nights in La Rochelle and before we went we looked over a few trip advisor reviews to book some good restaurants. This one came up as did La Suite, amazing, and Les Flots, sorry but less said the better on the latter. We eventually found the restaurant after my poor directional navigation but we were... More

We had not set out to eat here but decided to enter after perusing menus all around the market area. We were a little worried that no one was at the table outside but putting our heads round the door, it was clear that it was already well filled inside with happily eating clientelle. We still chose to eat outside.... More

This restaurant is always busy- we were luckily squeezed in at the last moment but, nonetheless, had a very nice table. My rognons de veau were perfectly cooked and my wife's crab followed by a filet de bar was excellent. A good wine list- the wife does the front of house and her husband is the chef- a great combination.... More

Close to the market, in rue Thiers, this popular restaurant, full of mainly locals, is great for lovers of fish and seafood. Our meal was perfectly paced with each course cooked and presented with flair. We especially enjoyed the cocotte of scallops and vegetables and the assiette gourmande for dessert - just the job for anyone finding it hard to... More

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
