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

We were in La Rochelle on a Monday night and many restaurants that we would have tried were closed. We happened upon this one and it was a truly wonderful meal. The Dorado fish was excellent and I loved their fig with honey and ice cream dessert! There were other dishes I would have loved to try but those desires... More

I was told by the staff that this was a Coutanceau restaurant until 4 months ago, when it was sold and re-created as an Italian speciality restaurant. Coutanceau is the equivalent of Rick Stein in Padstow, owning the best restaurant in town as well as several others. Friendly waiters and an excellent saltimbucco made for a great evening in this...

If you're a tourist glutted on duck and creme brulee and fancy a change this is a perfectly adequate, Italian. Sensible menu and wine list, good service, pleasant enough dining room. My wife and I had the risotto with langoustines and the tagliatelle followed by the tiramisu and cassata. All washed down with a perfectly adequate Montepulciano. Nothing outstanding but... More
