Visited La Table twice in 2011 and twice in July 2012. Last years experiences were amazing; food was some of the best restaurant food I had ever had. This year's food was still above average, but the service wasn't. After being seated at our table by a young waitress, she proceeded to ask for our drinks order in very fast French, despite clearly knowing from our arrival that we were not from France. We managed to get through this and order as we relish the opportunity to converse in French when abroad. This was despite her not making any effort to entertain our misinterpretation of some of the aperitifs on the menu. After she delivered our drinks, we waited a further 20 minutes and the waiter stil had not come to us for our order. As no water had been delivered to the table, I went up to the waitress who was idly standing at a counter and asked her for 'water'. She could not have been more confused by my request. I changed the request to 'Eau', but this added to her confusion. Again, whilst making me feel I was completely incomprehensible, she turned to the head water who explained to her what I was looking for. The head waiter, who normally is friendly and accommodating was equally brisk this evening and when we eventually received our food, it was lovely. Unfortunately the lack of the personal touch from the staff this evening was a big disappointment from what had previously been our favourite Charente maritime restaurant.

Back again to this restaurant in June 2012. Each year we return and the menu never fails to amaze us. Julie is such a fantastic chef and Julian the perfect host. On this occassion we tried the gourmet menu and were not disappointed. Do try the chefs surprise dessert.
By far the best restaurant in the area, and easily superior to the tourist restaurants on the coast

Having had a holiday home in the area for the last 20 years we finally got to try this restaurant on our last visit. We went for the most expensive Menu (31euros - 5 courses) as a treat. So was it any good, well we went back a few days later and tried another Menu, this time @26 euros, so that answers that. Both visits were amazing, both for the ambiance, friendly and professional staff and last but not least the quality of the food. It is truly very good indeed and we can not recommend it highly enough. So if you find yourself in the Charente Maritime, anywhere near Meursac, pay it a visit, we are sure you won't be disappointed. (Closed Mondays).

We have lived in the area for a number of years now. We've tried the touristic restaurants of Royan and the alleged up market restaurants in nearby Saintes. However this is by far the best restaurant that we have visited in the area. Its a beautiful setting in the small town of Meursac, discreetly sat behind the local church. The food is absolutely astonishing, Julie, who creates and prepares the food is a natural, the tastes are exquisite. We highly recommend this restaurant and are sure that it will only be a matter of time before a michelin star arrives.
