Little gem of a seafood place 15 minutes from La Rochelle, on the beach in a secluded spot. Built as an elegant seafront shack, the restaurant offers a relaxed atmosphere with a friendly, attentive service. I'd recommend the seafood platters (approx.£30) which kept us busy the whole evening and too full for dessert. Fresh food, simply prepared, yet absolutely delicious. Too late in the season to dine out on the terrace but the views were great.

Called into Port du Plomb at lunchtime by chance prior to late afternoon flight from La Rochelle (which is just a 5 minute drive away), even so late in the season it was apparent that this superb informal restaurant was thriving and was well supported by the local boating community.
A full menu was available but the majority of patrons (myself included) opted for the set lunch at 18 Euro's which comprised of a refreshing and light Tuna & Cucumber Salad, fabulous fresh Haddock cooked to perfection followed by a delicious Apple Tart, a couple of glasses of dry white and coffee to follow brought the bill to appoximately 50 Euros for two, which I thought was superb value.

(winter closing November 14th).

A most enjoyable experience, friendly informal service, can't wait to return!

Top quality seafood, simply prepared, but absolutely fantastic, with exceptional service. We were almost the first to arrive and definitely the last to leave, even though they were full, so no sense of being hurried

Great relaxed family lunch. When i say relaxed it is very elegant and chic at the same time. Would also be perfect for a romantic meal. Service top top top!!!
