We visited here during a stay in La Rochelle. We were looking for good local cuisine and friendly service, which we found here.

We started with some lovely fresh fine we clare oysters and fresh gazpacho. Both dishes were excellent, tasty and fresh.

For mains we had the charolais beef, with potatoes. Lovely meat and well cooked, to our liking.

For desserts, we had a chocolate mousse souffle, with chocolate rice cake. Lovely textures and smooth mousse.

We had a nice bottle of cadillac from the extensive wine list.

Overall, recommend, and would return.

We revisited the restaurant after enjoying lunch there in 2017 and were not disappointed. Despite catering for two lunch parties of over 20 covers on the day we visited our lunch was well up to the standard of last years and the service remained prompt and friendly. Once again our small dog was greeted with a bowl of water before we had even read the menus! The lunch set menu is excellent value. Very good.

Dinner tonight at 'Entract' was so much less than we expected....yes we had the special plate of the day at a modest price but you would think that if you want to maintain a big culinary name like Coutanceau in the La Rochelle area, then even your simplest and most modest meal should be good and live up to the name. Unfortunately, the lamb with white navy beans was very ordinary and almost tasteless and served room temp. The disappointment was surprising given the recommendations, the reviews and the snobby waiters and as we had been there years ago when it was good, we were hoping our meal would be delicious. It may take many more years for us to return especially as there are many other good restaurants in La Rochelle that deserve attention.

Pleasant lunch that didn’t quite live up to our expectations. I had the mullet filet and my wife had the duck, and we shared the lemon cheesecake for dessert. Good but not great. The restaurant is better I suspect than the tourist restaurants surrounding the harbor, but both our other meals in La Rochelle were better. Friendly attentive staff, modernistic, pleasant atmosphere.

The food was pretty good, but the service was so bad it soured the whole evening. We had not booked, and were offered a table near the kitchen. Wonderful to watch the kitchen brigade at work, really skilled and professional. We had lots of time to watch them. We waited for a menu, we waited for water, we waited for our food, we waited for our wine. One of the servers apologised for the delay. When we called for the bill I noted they had charged us for a glass of wine, not the bottle. I pointed it out, the bill was corrected without comment or thanks. When we left I said to the waiter (in French) that the evening had been a shambles. No comment, no response. On balance, a great disappointment.
