Nice Fish restaurant. Cool staff.

A good quality - primarily fish - restaurant on the port. Perfectly cooked fish and sea food served in imaginative ways. Considerably better than the average in Royan and not aimed at tourists. Really cool staff and good service.

A great little restaurant with a nice atmosphere and freindly English speaking staff. Had the risotto cake to start, really nicely seasoned and very imanigative. For main the veal, which was a chef special. This was very succulant and tasty served with vegtables and rice in a large bowl. Sweet was the tart tartin, again really flavoursome. All our dishes...

One of the best restaurants in Royan. And the price is low for a sophisticated place like this. The food was not all to my liking, though it mostly wasn't the fault if the PB itself. The cod came with a green sauce and ratatouille. I'm not a fan of fish in general so missed much of this. The main... More

The Menu prices starts at 16 euros at midday. I loved the choice of dishes, not only the classic oysters but also a cauliflower pannacotta, eels, salmon with citrus fruits, etc Very quick service, even when we arrived almost at the end of the official lunch time, the waiter immediately set us a table and served us. The wine selection... More

My wife and I decided to lunch here after reading the reviews on TA and we were not disappointed. We sat outside on the quay in clean conditions overlooking the Marina which was just a few feet away and the service was very good. The food and presentation was excellent and great value. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for... More

Stopped off in Royan whilst driving south to Bordeaux. It was approaching the end of lunchtime so we were pushing our luck to find somewhere nice to eat. Having checked out TA, we made haste to Le Petit Bouchon and were delighted that we did. I had a most delicious goats cheese and basil panna cotta at the recommendation of... More

We had an excellent meal in this restaurant. We booked ahead, and I would certainly recommend doing that as it was very busy in the evening. They have two sittings at the tables, so we were warned that we only had the table until 9.15. That said, the service was almost too quick and we were away well before the... More
