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 went here on a recommendation from a colleague at work in the UK, and it's easy to see why it's popular. Word of advice,go early.We got there about 1900 hours and got a table easily,thereafter the place filled up.If you only have one night in La Rochelle you've got to try this place and it's generally no more expensive...

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

We first ate at Le Boute en Train a little after it opened (about 12 years ago, if memory serves). We ate there fairly regularly for some years and then, gradually, we started to become unfaithful. Other restaurants smiled at us coquettishly and flashed their petticoats and, by and by, we drifted away. But today, for the first time in... More

We found this restaurant whilst out discovering La Rochelle near the market , we arrived & decided to eat outside although we were in a side street it had a atmosphere. The food was well presented, plentiful & excellent. The Tuna steak was superb.
