Busy and lucky to get a table without booking. Our waiter (the owner?) was super proffesional WITH a nice sense of humour. Clientele nicely varied mix of ages and natinalities with a reassuring quotient of locals. Food mainly locally sourced and while mainly simple all well judged. Prices modest, including wines so a very jolly evening.

This place was just around the corner from our hotel and just stumbled across it. It was very full but with French people and the menu looked interesting so we went in. The atmosphere inside was very relaxed, unpretentious and just felt like a favourite French local. The staff were friendly and informative but in a non-hurried way. My husband... More

A pleasant restaurant giving a warm reception tucked away in the old town. The food was well presented and there was a good range of wines, including a good variety of wines by carafe. Reasonably priced.

I have never been to France where I could find such a friendly staff. The restaurant is a small restaurant located a street hidden away from the main road. There is a great deal of dishes and their burger is yummy! The waiters give you great advice and are very accommodating. They do have a menu for children. All in... More

La Rochelle is reputedly the second most visited city in France. I have no way of knowing whether this is true or not: who, I wonder, is doing the counting? What is sure is that there is an awful lot of restaurants in the city. Competition tends to keep quality high (which doesn’t mean that there is not a percentage... More
