Food was from a very limited menu no English menu available. So we struggled with limited French and our polish waitress limited English. Food was not great nor of any quality to speak about. Expensive when compared to England not sure why everyone speaks so highly of French cuisine and is so critical of English food. Not great value for... More

I don't know why this is marked on Tripadvisor as being expensive - it is within the lowest price range of restaurants worthy of the name ( as opposed to Moules Frites places) and offers imaginative and always reliable takes on French classical cuisine. We have been several times now, most recently yesterday on a Saturday lunchtime in July on... More

We had a fantastic lunch with our 9-year old son who was very pleased to find duck breast with a spiced caramel sauce on the menu. My dessert of tarte fine aux fraises was wonderful . The restaurant feels airy and bright. We were made to feel very welcome and the service was excellent.

Enjoyed our first meal in France here, such a relief to find a menu with an English translation. We were made very welcome & were introduced to local wines & aperitif. Very pleasant evening .

Unpretentious, honest bistro style near the main Market in La Rochelle. We came for lunch. The restaurant has a lunch "formula" at about 15 Euors. Main course and/or entree or dessert. They have a very extensive and interesting wine list. The food is excellent, the service is friendly and very quick. A perfect place for a well tasting lunch or... More
