I have visited the La Jabotiere twice recently, once with friends and family and then with family. This was all over the Xmas/New Year period. The food was marvellous and the wine first class, plus being very reasonable in price. The staff cannot be more attentive than they were and everyone enjoyed it tremendously. The actual site of the restaurant... More

We did not have reservations but they seated us outside overlooking the beach. Great menu and the food was very good and the ambiance was great too.

never experience better food or service, what a culinary trip, a real french international touch. I am well suprised to find a restaurant with everything so perfect and at the same time friendly with no pretence. Service just great and easy and quality of food and presentation, plus Yam Yam.

I came here last year just after the opening and it was great, I am just back again and it is even better all the staff seem to have now settled in, and Susanne has an exceptional understanding of how the client wants to be treated. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is outstanding with an idyllic view of... More

Lived in the Charente maritime for 10 years and must say one of the best meals I have eaten. Recommend the fois gras and filet beef.

We live in this area for a few months of the year and were looking forward to trying this newly refurbished restaurant. My French wife booked a table in the restaurant well in advance but on arrival were told they only had tables in the brasserie and were full! There was no apology or hint of remorse! We found the...

Very nice beach location subject only to the adjacent casino which is a bit of an eyesore. The disappointment is the food which is expensive and rather disappointing in terms of quality. All elements are in place except the delivery of something which justifies price and surroundings.

Loved munching right on the beach, the breeze was just right. Plenty of open air seating. The room was attractively decorated for a large family reunion.
