Clearly this is a destination restaurant whose patrons are not only repeat customers but folks like me who have been referred to it either by reading or by friends. This is NOT a fancy restaurant. It's an smallish oyster shack directly overlooking where the oysters...More

It could be that we visited on the wrong day (a busy Friday evening in high season) but the frites were rather disappointing - frozen scooper type chips that seem like a good idea for mopping up the sauce, but add nothing to the meal...More

Spectacular views of the bay and viaduc to Ile d'Oleron from this wonderful restaurant located at the water's edge in the tiny working port of Bourcefranc-le-Chapus.

Even discounting the very competitive price, this place has the best seafood you can find. We had everything (8 of us - twice) and we can honestly say that not one dish was a disappointment. The seafood was as refresh as anywhere in Europe. I...More

Absolutely excellent price/quality! This little place in a tiny port (you can get a small boat to Fort Louvois from down the street) is truly a surprising little gem. The place has something of a Spartan look about it (though there's a nice view of...More

This is a real gem if you enjoy fresh seafood. The Menu Charentais is the best value if you want 3 courses,as the seafood platter,fish of the day and cafe gourmand are lovely. You do get a choice of starters,mains and puds but that's just...More
