We had a splendid meal, certainly worth a Michelin star, in this delightful restaurant. Highly recommended.

We stayed here over the summer for a number of nights. The room was fab and the breakfast excellent but the gem was the restaurant, superb food at good value

“Another wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

This restaurant is tucked away in one of the side streets of Le Chateau but it is well worth seeking out. A lovely menu with a good choice produced from locally sourced ingredients. An excellent chef. The tuna starter is marinaded for days.
We have had several meals here since our first visit 5 years ago. Some of the staff speak good English so can help with interpreting the menu - which we found helpful. On a warm day you can eat outside in the delightful garden.

“Fantastic french cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

L'ile d'Oleron is not exactly the place in France where you get the most exciting food experience. This restaurant is a total exception to all other restaurants on the island, because the food is just fantastic with a savoury combination of French "basics" in a modern and subtle interpretation.
You will experience a warm and genuine welcome by the owner and a very discreet, but efficient service. Definitely the only place to recommend on the whole island, if you want to experience more than the usual tourist food!
