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

We had dinner there having booked a table for the terrace. We were not disappointed, all three courses came promptly the starter, main course and sweet were all excellent (three... More

We searched out this little gem via recommendations on trip advisor and I'm glad we did. Simple but really beautifully cooked and presented fish and desserts to die for! Also very friendly, smiley service and a good option for children. Best meal of the holiday and I wish we'd found it last year to avoid having to eat in one... More

This restaurant is at the port. There is no road between the tables and the port, so it is a great place just to be there. I had the 'humeurs du chef' and is was really great. In the evening it can be crowded, so a reservation could help to get a table.

Excellent food in a great setting overlooking the harbour, and bay beyond, in Royan. Our waiter was superb and had a great personality and knows his craft. The food was delicious we had Thai gambas to start and then sea bass on a bed of Provence vegetables. The cooking and flavours were perfectly balanced and all this for €16.90 per... More

many thanks to all the staff and especially the chef who made our visit so enjoyable. my wife is vegetarian and we always struggle for food in France but here nothing was too much trouble and they were happy to accommodate her. my fish was expertly cooked and the standard of service and food was first class. highly recommended.

We had lunch here on a sunny afternoon. We sat on the patio, and opted for the two course lunch for 15€. You can choose an appetizer and a main course, or main course and dessert. Our appetizers were beautifully presented, and delicately prepared, and delicious. The main course was slightly disappointing, but very good none the less. I was... More

We have found so few places in this area of Fance that offer a healthy option for children. They cooked our 20 month old little girl fish, rice and crushed peas. And gave us a booster seat for her to sit on. One of the waiters explained the menu to us in English, and the food was very fresh and... More

We had a very pleasant time in this restaurant. The atmosphere is very good and the food was incredible. Try the "humeur du chef": the menu less then 20 EUR with very high quality. The wine choice is good. Service a little bit long but necessary to get such fresh and quality food. Definitely the best quality/price in the area.
