Great relaxed family lunch. When i say relaxed it is very elegant and chic at the same time. Would also be perfect for a romantic meal. Service top top top!!!

Hidden away in L'HOUMEAU, the Coquillages & Crustaces has great Huitres (Oysters). Had 30 extra large with a Jean Max Roger Sancerre. A great unpretentious restaurant with great seafood and service. Not to be missed

Great location in the little village of L'houmeau just 6 kms from La Rochelle . Great, friendly service, good food with choice of steak, fish and fruits de mer . Good parking outside the restaurant and very clean toilets 🙂🤓😎

Had lunch here the other day and was very nice out in the sun. Had the salmon burger which was tasty, and dad had the fish and chips which was demolished quickly! Will be back here for sure.

We were recommended by the concierge to eat at C&C for the best seafood and he was right. We created sort of a tasting menu ourselves and what we had was just perfect... We enjoyed the service, timeliness and the price we paid...Highly recommended...

This is a truly genuine place, nothing posh but great fine food, friendly service and just a genuinely nice place to dine. We went there just before flying back home and trust me we will go back. The menu du jour is very reasonnable but look at the carte and it's a dream for anyone who loves seafood.

Having read the good reviews, we went out of our way to eat here on the way from Paris to a vacation on Ile de Ré and it was excellent. Everything was fresh delicious the way you hope that seafood would be but so often it is not. Oysters, fresh shellfish platter and Fish and Chips French style plus lovely... More

We arrived here by accident, we took our dogs for a walk Nd asked if we could sit and have a drink. The owner told us to sit down and we had a glass of wine, whilst in there a few of the diners came over to admire our dogs (Rhodesian Ridgebacks) quite unusual in France. They told us that... More

Perfect seafood simply cooked. We shared a lovely Seafood platter while enjoying wonderful views. The restaurant was packed so may be best to book if you can. Good selection of fairly priced wines too.
