I have visited several restaurants in La Rochelle and this is certainly one of the best. Friendly staff, nice environment, excellent quality and decent portion size. There was a very good selection of meat and fish dishes so plenty of choice. Highly recommend.

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...More
