For a main I ordered fish and chips which was greasy and the fish was over cooked by about 5 minutes – at 20 Euros I felt I'd been well and truly had! avoid

We visited Andre as we had seen the nice seafood platters that were served here. Indeed, they were nice (far from the best we have eaten though) to reasonable prices. If you are just looking for seafood this is the place to go. However, the service was not that great, feeling rushed and not that polite. We also tried some... More

The restaurant is so much romantic ! Fish is of course the best meal to choose is uncooked fish. The waiters are very, very kind. The atmosphere is cordially warm and romantic. A bit expansive, but is, in any case, a good quality restaurant. If I will go again in La Rochelle, I surely will go there.

Enjoyed an evening meal here on a Friday night. I booked online whilst still in the UK, using Tripadvisor's restaurant booking system - The Fork. It was easy to use and very helpful. We saw lots of people milling up and down the streets looking at menus and being undecided on where to eat, whereas we had reviews, menus and... More

Seems a La Rochelle institution! Had a wonderful fish soup and then seafood platter for main... A bit experimental with some of the seafood on offer but great. Not recommended if your not into your fish though, other offerings were limited.

Great meal and good service! The location is also easy to find as it is just in the area in front of the towers. They have a big place and they serve good seafood meal. :)

I have been visiting Andres for more than thirty years, back then it was quite small, but of recent years it has extended significantly. I understand many of the reviewers comments, it is a bit of a warren, but its in an historic part, which is part of the old port. Yes, the prices have moved up too, but the... More

I attend a La Rochelle conference every year in June, and try to review what I think was the best restaurant during the week. This year, Andre's was my favorite. I had a smoked cod dish that was superb. Super fresh and with a delicate flavor. I'm a fan of craft beers, and was delighted to have one suggested to... More

Our second visit and again fell short of expectations. Service poor, ignored for a while as if did not exist. Wrong order served, wine overcharged by few euros, hence no tip. Definitely will not visit again.

For over 70 years, le Bar Andre has welcomed diners aboard a ship "moored" at the foot of the towers in the old port of La Rochelle. The menu mirrors the restaurant, an abundance of the sea's treasures. The seafood and shellfish arrive daily direct from the local fish market. Like the two towers, Le Bar Andre is a La Rochelle landmark, embarking its clientele on a delicious seafarer's journey.--Situe sur le vieux port de La Rochelle, au pied des tours, le Bar Andre vous accueille depuis plus de 70 ans dans un "navire amarre" aux multiples ambiances. La carte est a l'image du restaurant qui defend corps et ames les joyaux de la mer. Les fruits de mer et coquillages arrivent donc quotidiennement en direct de la criee locale rochelaise. A l'instar des deux tours, le Bar Andre est une figure incontournable de la Rochelle qui embarque ses clients pour un voyage aux saveurs marines.
