Second night in La Rochelle and our trip special dinner. Beautiful room and vue of the port and sea. Friendly reception and staff, good knowledge of the plates served, excellent wine list priced accordingly, great interaction from all the waiters, didn't feel stuffy at all for a two stars. Then the food, if you don't eat fish, it's not for you :) little "fun" appetiser eaten on your hand, this makes you feel at ease I guess, a good thing but not majorly tasty but pleasant. Followed by two pre starters, very tasty and well presented, like all the other dishes in fact, scallops in two service, tender stuffed squid with wild mushrooms and table sliced truffle, nearly not needed as the squid was so tasty, very good size lobster main course, all the sauces light but flavoursome except maybe the black garlic that was kind of lost, good cheese board with local fares, very pretty chocolate dessert "les galets" not as exciting chocolate souffle, one pre and one after dessert, lots of attention, had different wine glasses with each course, all matching well. Owner Nicolas very approachable and pleasant and again great laugh with the lads working the floor. Overal bill expected from a two star but felt great value for the amount of food and quality served, would I come back on a future visit? You bet !! well done and thank you all for a great evening.
