“Awful attitude.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We have eaten here before and found the food rather good and imaginatively presented , however the attitude of the staff is disgraceful.! We will not return and cannot recommend this restaurant as a result of our poor treatment . Please aviod .....or at least tell the management. , Wish I would have .

“Never again!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

We should have checked the reviews before eating at this establishment. It was expensive, the service condescending and poor (15 minutes to serve two pre-dinner drinks and the waiter tried to take my expensive three quarter-full glass of champagne away to serve the wine with the entree ). This same waiter had no idea of the 18 euro menu of the day and had to go outside to check the board (salmon tartare and cod by the way). . A serious case of over-selling as the staff tried to push the Bollinger - in the end, we just asked for the house champagne (Moet). Initially we were surprised that all the other restaurants nearby were full to bulging but this one wasn't. We now know why. The decor looks more like a club come boudoir, is quite tacky and looks like it has been decorated by the 'tart who won the pools' to be honest. The table bases are large conical things made of concrete which means, as a woman, you either sit with your legs wide apart or you kind of sit side-saddle. Neither position is very comfortable for a meal - very strange. The food was bland, not warm and surprisingly bad for a chef with such credentials - frankly we were stunned. Can't imagine that Ducasse would be too pleased! Don't waste your money!

“awful food and service..”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

We had a a 2-course dinner at the restaurant.

1st course: foie gras. Served too cold.
2nd course: entrecote. An awful piece of meat which I cannot believe they serve to customers...
Service: very poor attitude from the waiters with really poor knowledge about food.

In my mind this place ruins the reputation of other restaurant and la rochelle.

The should be shut down.

“Bad reception so didn't bother even eating there!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2011

We decided to try this restaurant today for lunch with a view to booking a table for New Year's Eve..... We were greeted by a tatty dressed young lady who couldn't raise a smile and a strong smell of cabbages coming from the kitchen! We asked to see the Menu for New Year's Eve and were given a faded bit of paper with an uninspiring menu shoved in an old file binder which was smeared with fingerprints. And then they want 130€/person! Such a shame as the decor is great. We didn't even bother to stay for lunch. With a frosty reception and a poor bit of marketing who would?!
