We went to La Petite Auberge on the first evening of our long weekend in La Rochelle. We chose the restaurant on the basis of the excellent Trip Advisor reviews. We were definitely not disappointed. We arrived early, whch was just as well as we hadn't booked and I would certainly advise booking a table in order not to be disappointed. The welcome was really friendly and we were immediately made to feel like regulars, not just tourists. In fact, from what I saw of the clientele, the restaurant attracts as many locals as it does visitors, both French and other nationalities. The menu was excellent: great choice, imaginative and a little bit 'different' without being absurd. It was good value for money as well. Service was prompt and, even though the restaurant was busy, our waitress was happy to stop for a moment to chat about the restaurant and the menu. The food was delicious: I had the most beautifully fresh piece of cod which was succulent and cooked to perfection. We must also recommend very highly the foie gras ice cream, which comes as part of a starter. All in all, we were very tempted to eat here on every night of our visit (unfortunately the restaurant is closed on Sunday evenings) and, in retrospect, I wish that we had!
