Having visited in May, we thought we would try this restaurant again and we weren't disappointed. It was a very quiet Monday evening, the weather beautiful and we sat outside. Very friendly greeting from the waitress. Our drinks arrived very quickly and our food soon...More

When arriving in La Rochelle, we looked for a place to have lunch. The street where the restaurant is situated has several restaurants all with roughly the same menu. The food was nice staff friendly but once you had your main course they seemed to...More

We sat down at this restaurant in the outside area overlooking the marina and immediately relaxed. The menu was typical of all pavement style cafes. We chose well and our meal typically our favourite fayre was washed down with a pichet of white wine. Oysters...More
