This place is very small, but popular. No hot food....mostly seafood but very good quality. We ate oysters which were wonderful. Be prepared to breathe in !

This is situated just down a side street from the harbour. We were just there for a lunch of fish soup, oysters and langoustines. All very good washed down with a glass of local white. Service was excellent and a relaxed atmosphere. Recommended.

Easy to miss in the plethora of eateries in La Rochelle, Le Comptoir Saoufé is a lovely small restaurant offering both “sea” and “land” dishes. There is no kitchen as such so most of the offerings are cold dishes, but all of excellent quality (the only warm dish we came across was the soup), with some great value set menus, one with just seafood (soup with croutons, crevettes with home made mayo, whelks, and a dessert including coffee, homemade biscuits and a yoghurt with a compote) and one which expands on the previous by adding cold meats and pâté. All complemented by a pleasant atmosphere and courteous staff. Warmly recommended.

We came here to eat as it was rated the best for oysters in La Rochelle. We weren’t disappointed, the oysters were great the service efficient and friendly. A small place but perfect for lovely evening meal.

This is a true gem and we highly recommend this restaurant if you fancy some premium quality sea food, home made bread and a glass of good wine. If you have the feeling the front terrace is too noisy, go to the back terrace which is nice and quiet. Very friendly service, cosy little place.
