This is situated just down a side street from the harbour. We were just there for a lunch of fish soup, oysters and langoustines. All very good washed down with a glass of local white. Service was excellent and a relaxed atmosphere. Recommended.

Easy to miss in the plethora of eateries in La Rochelle, Le Comptoir Saoufé is a lovely small restaurant offering both “sea” and “land” dishes. There is no kitchen as such so most of the offerings are cold dishes, but all of excellent quality (the...More

We came here to eat as it was rated the best for oysters in La Rochelle. We weren’t disappointed, the oysters were great the service efficient and friendly. A small place but perfect for lovely evening meal.

Decided to stop in for dinner of oysters and variety of seafood, it was fantastic! The owner was helpful, the ambience friendly and welcoming. We only selected the oysters, langostine, and bulots. Everything was fresh, cold and tasty. You won’t be disappointed.

In the middle of La Rochelle’s harbour area you find this small seafood restaurant/bar. We ordered the oisters, great taste, very fresh. Negative point was that one of the ‘locals’ was probably drunk, noisy and loud what was a shame.
