The service is slow but who cares? This is a great restaurant to watch the world to go by and the food is great. The best Entrecôte I have had in a long time and cooked perfectly.

We have eaten here several times - the food is lovely and the set menu is really good value, which is why I have still given four stars - if the service had matched it would have been five again. Steak well cooked, dessert delicious - very happy with the food and the wine we chose. Sadly the service this... More

2 Course Set Menu @€26, cooking good but a little naive. I had squid & ham risotto to start & main course of cod with chorizo crust, fish cooked perfectly, all the restaurants we've tried in this town cook fish well. The wine was a little pricey, so the bill came out quite high.

As suggested by hotel, we tried this restaurant and found it was a great choice. The restaurant was located in a street full of local restaurant, and this one was quite full all the time. We walked-in earlier to secure table luckily and seated in the second floor of the restaurant. The setup was cozy and casual, the staff are... More

On a warm summers evening in la Rochelle when you have had enough of sea food on the port side step back a dtreet and visit la Petite Auberge. Make a reservation or go early because this is a popular spot. Atmosphere, food and service are superb. French cooking at its best.

We went on a very busy night without a booking but they found us a table upstairs. The food was really good and the Pinot Noir (which I just let the waitress randomly choose) was excellent. Service was friendly. I highly recommend The Little Aubergine!

I spent nearly a week in La Rochelle visiting quite a few restaurants all of which were nice but average and absolutely huge portion sizes. Visited La Petite Auberge on a whim and was very pleasantly surprised. I had the duck for main which was delicious and honestly the best cooked duck I've ever had. The people were friendly and...

If you find yourself in la Rochelle you will be amazed at the array of the many different restaurants. How do you choose? Luckly we made the right choice by far, I would highly recommend this establishment. Due primarily to the presentation and the quaility of the food, everything was right about it, the taste, the size of the portions... More
