What a HUGE disappointment - having heard GREAT things about this restaurant we took visiting friends from the UK here for lunch; there were only TWO things left on the starter menu on offer, the staff were surly and slow, they brought the wrong wine and refused to take it back and the steaks we ordered weren't cooked as we...

We popped in with no reservation and got a seat on the front overlooking the beach which was beautiful. Food was delicious. Services was great. Will definitely return.

Visited with family who live locally, without booking a table. Examined the 21 Euro lunch menu and spoke to the charming hostess who conducted us to a table with an excellent view of the sea, it was a little windy for us to sit on the patio but a lot did. The three course menu du jour became extended by... More

I am surprisingly stunned by a negative reveiw that the La Jabotiere received just recently. I was there last month on business, my second time around and I have found the restuarant to be extremely pleasant, appropriately priced and the service to be above and beyond. I the view is breathtaking and make my meal even more enjoyable. The selection... More

Waiters so ultra attentive that even if the WATER wasn't cold enough an instant refill. The food - inventive and amazing. Besides the free appetizers we had warm mussels. Very original the cream is added after cooking... More

We ate at the Bistro (Face à New York), the decor was contemporary and relaxed. The food was excellent and good value as the portions are large! An exceptional welcome and service followed. I think we may be regulars from now on, Royan town needs more restaurants like this.
