From the first encounter booking a table to paying the bill, this was one of the best restaurants experiences of my life. My wife and I have very high expectations when dining out, especially in France. The service, the food and the whole experience was magnificent. Very occasionally a wonderful dish may give you goosebumps. This happened to me twice... More

A truly memorable meal but expensive. Great service and a beatiful location. Very busy restaurant (we were there as they opened on a Saturday and were lucky to get a table) so booking probably advised.

We had a reservation, arrived on time, and were seated immediately at a very nice table. The staff was extremely friendly, and some spoke English. The food was very good. The amuse bouche and mignardises were excellent. The dishes were in relatively small portions. However, we did not leave hungry. We would return.

The advertised sea-bass was off the menu, replaced by monkfish, but served with the same sea urchin sauce. One of our party ordered the monkfish, the other two an entrée of turbot with celery risotto; we three shared two deserts. Together with a good bottle of Petit Chablis (37€) the whole bill came to about 150€, which was slightly over-priced.... More

Good food and very nice location near the harbor entrance of La Rochelle, but for the price we would expect more experienced staff and a higher quality of service. The staff seemed young and not very experienced. Plates were collected immediately after having finished a dish, there was no plate supplied for the bread, and the staff seemed rushed to... More

Having visited Les Flots in September 2015 on our way to our Lot et Garonne house, we were on a return trip home on 4th April 2016, and had a stop over in La Rochelle. Naturally we chose to return to Les Flots after our last experience there. It is one of the restaurants open on the Sunday evening, so... More

Visited for lunch without a booking as a solo diner off a cruise ship berthed at the port - La Palice. The restaurant was quiet and I was welcomed and given a table with no problem.
