Popular restaurant just by the old market hall. Although it is not exclusively a fish restaurant, most of the dishes are fish. I had the mi-cuit de saumon to star, followed by the whole bar. Both as fresh as they come and delicious. Neil had the foie gras followed by the cocotte de Saint Jaques. Scallops to die for, superbly... More

Their veal kidneys continue to be superb ! A good menu and very pleasant service are the hallmarks of this restaurant- you can eat inside or outside. Every day there are new specials on the blackboard. Highly recommended.

This is a very friendly restaurant offering well-priced menus with a good range of dishes. It is in a street in the central part of town, just a short walk from the port area, and is a better bet than some of the more touristy places near the port. All the dishes were of high quality, with a certain originality... More

Absolutely delicious - friendly staff - even though our French was poor - best turbot we've ever had and perfectly cooked beef - all for a great price!

This restaurant was recommended to me by someone who lives in La Rochelle. They mainly specialise in fish but I chose the fillet steak and it was spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The service was efficient without being too servile and the ambiance was in keeping with the area. Would definitely recommend.

We followed the advice on tripadvisor and booked a table. The service was super friendly and the atmosphere cosy and relaxed. We went for the full menu and were not disappointed. The minestrone with shrimps, oysters as starter, maigre with asparagus and deindre (recommendation of the day), all was very tasty. As dessert we shared a plate of cheese and... More

The service was friendly and efficient, we managed to keep it going in French but got the feeling that they could speak English if required. We were there on a Saturday evening and the place was full with a great atmosphere. For starters we had the Tarte de dorade, avocat, concombre au citron vert and the foie gras. For mains... More

This is well worth finding. It is on Rue Thiers. We had lunch here on Saturday. We went for the 27€ formula menu with entree and plat. I had salmon and crab to start and my wife had foie gras. Superb. Main course I had cod; this was also superb and worth a Michelin star on its own and my... More

A Formule du midi lunch offered a choice of fish (merlu) or steak for just 15 Euro with a dessert. Brilliant! The food was fresh and very tasty. There was a good choice of wines including half bottles and wines by the glass. Service was prompt and polite if a little unsmiling. The ambiance is pleasant and it is located... More
