My husband, my son and I had a great dinner here. My husband had ordered the seafood platter, my son fish and chips and I had loup de mer. All was served quickly, and tasted wonderful. The waiter was friendly. The whole atmosphere pleasant. Sadly we left our vegetarian daughter at home, because we had not known there was also a vegetarian option on the menu, too. Next time we will all be back for another great dinner!

Hidden away in the harbour of Port du Plomb, I returned after a two year gap to this superb informal fish restaurant, the food was at least as good or if anything a little better than on my previous visit,
A 3 course set menu for the bargain price of €18 needs to be experienced to be believed, a must visit establishment on any visit to La Rochelle.

Winter closing in mid November.

Beautiful setting for this restaurant - right on the water. We were able to watch the sun set and walk to the beach after our meal.

The food was good - prices on the higher side. 2 of our group were a bit dissapointed with their main meal, but mine and my partners food was excellent.

Had a bit of a mixed welcome from the host and offered a table in the corner which wasn't very nice even though we had booked for months and the restaurant was empty. Our request for an alternative wasn't greeted very positively.

In general this is a really good restaurant and worth the trek from La Rochelle.

Came here for lunch as my son and daughter-in-law booked this as a surprise for my 70th birthday. It is a little off the beaten track but worth the effort to find it. Looking over a small marina on a beautiful day, this place is lovely. We had salmon and oysters for starters, Tuna and fish and chips. The food is fantastic. The stafff very helpful and friendly, service was excellent away from the crowds and tourists, serving great seafood, definately worth a visit if you are in La Rochelle. Also away from the crowds and tourists.

We have eaten at this restaurant 4 or 5 times now and it is fab! Off the beaten track in a quiet seaside location, it is relaxing and chilled but there is a buzz and excitement.
The food is perfect - we have tried most things on the menu and love them all.
Nothing better than lunch on the terrace in the summer -it wont be long until we are back!
The service is always friendly and Celine was a fab waitress, speaking excellent english with our non french speaking friends. Thank you!
