The meal was very well presented and was delicious. The restaurant itself is decorated in a "fisherman" theme, but with taste. The service was very slow...we felt as if we were eating in an "oubliettes". Several customers were seated after us and left a half an hour before we did!

Nice place, good menu, not expensive. Food in general was good. Unfortunately there was sand in all salads and the mussels and no satisfactory solution was provided.

A good value meal, well served in comfortable surrounding. We ate off the set menu and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. All the courses were tasty (salad to start/ sea bream and tuna main course & I had the canale dessert whist my husband had the desert platter). Service was good too.

We looked forward to visiting this restaurant after reading many good reviews but must say that we were very disappointed. We ate here for lunch and for starters we had a tasteless soup and some odd tasting prawns. The main courses were a little better, the moule frites ok and a fish dish which were just below average. In total... More

I booked this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. Wish I hadn't. Service was patchy and disinterested, and the food was a let-down.The fish terrine starter was tasteless and flabby, the beef was so bad that my steak knife couldn't cut it. it came smothered in onions, no doubt to disguise it. The cheese and salad for afters featured a small... More

If your traveling through France and happen to be on the West Coast Fruits de Mer is something you should try. I had a good look around the restaurants in La Rochelle and chose this one . They have FdM au volontair, as much as you can eat. I did, the quality was very good, I had oysters, crab, shrimps,... More

It's such a lottery sometimes in La Rochelle due to the choice but we hit the jackpot here-this serves good traditional well prepared and simple quality food at fair price-good emphasis on local seafood and excellent service-we ate here twice and had two lovely evenings.
