Dropped in for lunch- a really pleasant experience. Great service, nice energy, succulent moules frites and decent wine list.

Would go back!

The fruit de mer was not as expected, the salmon tartar and the tuna carpaccio where great! Perfect location with a parking only 200 m further.

Can not understand previous reviews. We found the menu small.
Mix starter was big but bland. Sea bass was just ok.
Fish came with a sauce poured over it could not identify what it was ( not very nice).
Would not recomend

I hate to leave negative reviews, and I accept that this was La Rochelle on a very hot and very busy Saturday night, but this was the most uncomfortable and unsatisfactory dining experience for years.

Our pre-booked table was a tiny folding garden table with no room for your feet due to the bracing bar; the chairs were slatted wooden garden chairs with no cushioning; tables were crammed together and I was continuously knocked by people squeezing past.

The initial welcome was fine, starters came quickly and were good, but we were then ignored for half an hour. When we eventually got a waiter’s attention it became apparent our main course order had been lost in the kitchen. Our mains came quickly once this mistake had been addressed, and by way of apology we received a complementary glass of wine and a digestif. We then paid the bill in full, there was no attempt to offer a reduction (not that believe in playing that sort of game).

I understand that mistakes happen, but the cramped uncomfortable seating made the waiting so much worse. From the Tripadvisor reviews we’d hoped for a memorable romantic meal. It was memorable but for the wrong reasons.

We decided to eat here based on the TA reviews and were glad we did. The mussels were delicious - the freshest I've ever had - and really reasonably priced bearing in mind the location (€15 incl. a glass of wine!). Service was great and attentive. We hope to go back.
