Had a wonderful evening and an exceptional meal here last night. This place was highly recommended by La Rochelle locals - with good reason. Incredibly warm friendly and obliging staff and superb food. Excellent value for money and perfect location.

The food was excellent, especially the mussels. Our first bottle of Rose was awful, the second good. Stay away from cheapest. Good service, friendly staff. Not cheap but would return.

Spent a few days in La Rochelle with friends and chose this restaurant even with some negative reviews. Needn’t have worried, location perfect, staff friendly and welcoming and food was excellent. We ate a variety of dishes at a cost of 160 euros including wine...More

Definitely make a reservation if you want to enjoy dinner here. Service starts at 7pm and it gets busy quickly because it is on the what under the chain tower opposite the water bus terminal. Excellent choice of fish dishes both as starters and entrees....More

Food is good - waiters are just unbelievable: ignorant, rude, making you feel unwelcome. Plates and water is simply slammed on your table, they don’t give a f*ck who ordered which plate, just „oh, it’s fish“, bill is brought without asking and while half through...More

Whilst finding a reassurance with a reasonable fish selection as well as seafood, this restaurant came up trumps last night. Fair price, excellent service and very good sea bass.

Last visited in 2014, when we enjoyed the best meal of that trip here at BdP. Maybe on that 2014 occasion we caught them on a very good night, but 5 years later it was OK, but nothing more than that. I suppose their location...More

Great restaurant, nice terrace great for people watching, looking out on old port. Great sea food, the staff were friendly and spoke great English. Highly recommend.

Booked a tabled based on recent reviews. This was our third night in La Rochelle so already had a benchmark. The food was reasonable but the menu was uninspiring. To be honest there are much better restaurants for the same price but without the view.
