Good location and decor and they are evidently popular. Service was a little slow getting the starters out, but after that everything arrived as one would expect and one cannot really fault the staff. I can't say that we were wildly impressed with the food: good but certainly not great and I was left wondering if it was really worth... More

This was our second visit to La Rochelle and when we visited a couple of years ago we fell into one of the many over-patronised establishments - not actually on the main road, but just on the corner at the turn of the road. We were badly let down on that occasion as it was busy and very commercial. We... More

Amazing meal and reasonably priced too. Probably the best pasta I have ever eaten - perfectly cooked. The service was efficient but not rushed. A good wine list too. It was raining when we left and they could not get a taxi for us so the waitress offered us an umbrella. As I said, great service.

I give it a bad rating mainly because of the price. It is a very homemade food, not fancy at all, or special in any way. It is not bad, it's somewhat tasty, but they charge prices as if it's gourmet italian, and it is far from it. If they want to charge gourmet prices, they should serve gourmet dishes.

I had never had gazpacho of green asparagus and was wowed! Totally delicious! The risotto was good but for my taste there was too much cheese in it which made it very heavy, I personally prefer it a bit lighter a la Jamie Oliver...The owner was superb and offered to serve me something else which to me indicated the high...

We popped in as we fancied some pasta and had seen it packed the night before so thought it must be good. The food was really good and the wine reasonably priced. I recommend the sea bass. We arrived around 19:30 but the restaurant filled very quickly after this.

We had checked the menu out on a couple of evenings and decided that we would eat here later in the week.The four of us were shown to a large round table inside and we were soon looking at the menus with an aperitif. We had mozzarella and tomato salad, octopus and Caesar salads to start, followed by Cod with... More

My wife and I ate here for lunch before going on a boat trip. We had prioritised other restaurants that we would have preferred to eat at, but they were either full, or closed. So it was such a nice surprise to discover Le Comptoir des Voyages, everything about it was excellent. When I have finished this review, I will... More

We love Italian food, but are frequently disappointed when eating in so called Italian restaurants outside of Italy. This time we were not - there wasn't a pizza to be seen on the menu. We thoroughly enjoyed all that we were served. The dishes were far more authentic than many other ‘Italian restaurants’ that I have eaten in. We choose... More
