Nearly fell off my chair at the cost of a G&T but I suppose that's the price you pay for sitting out at one of the better quayside locations in La Rochelle. But nice as it was we didn't stay for a second round.

Based opposite the harbour this restaurant offers great food. We went at lunchtime and had fish outside looking at the harbour. Very good service and open from noon to midnight.

If you took any notice of the reviews posted here. But actually it all worked out perfectly - staff were very attentive and friendly food was quick to come and very tasty and the bill was not what I was expecting eating in a restaurant with a view of the harbour. For my family def a risk that was worth... More

We stopped here for a drink before dinner, sceptical of the quality of places on the port front. However, we saw the food coming out and were tempted, and the prices seemed reasonable. We had a really lovely meal - different and of very good quality. The service was great and we were very pleased with the accidental find.

Ordered the specials which sounded nice you would expect them to be priced in line with the rest of the menu however got a shock when we got the bill. €36 each. Food was nice but I feel this is a way of ripping off tourists. Bill came to €96. Coffee was also very expensive and burnt. Awful. Nice food... More

Made same mistake as a few other reviewers on here. Also agreed to have 'the suggestion du jour' which was not on menu and ended up costing €36.- per person....much more than similar dishes on the menu. The food is reasonable, but not worth what we paid for it...Service was very friendly. But also won't be returning and would not... More

As indicated by the heading it is all about the location. Being a wonderfully sunny (but very cold) day we sat outside with heaters (AKA "the heated terrace"). We enjoyed the view of the harbour and watched the world go by. I had the grilled salmon with lentils and bacon (a nice surprise not mentioned on the menu). My husband... More

Premium prices for mediocre food. Cappuccinos came cold with flat foam, desserts sugary but not much taste. Good below average. Everything however is terribly expensive. I'd actually recommend to avoid as pretty much every place nearby serves much better food for fraction of the price.

We had lunch here on New Year's Day, the restaurant was busy but not bursting at the seams. Service was efficient but impersonal, food was good and well presented if a little pricey. Location is what you are paying for at this place. Perfectly OK for an impromptu meal but not somewhere I feel I have to return to as... More

Nice fresh fish dishes. service pleasant from younger waiters. Stupidly agreed to try a " suggestion du jour" which was not on menu and came out as 34 euros per serving...15 euros more than an equivalent dish on menu. Should have checked price with waiter. We will be going back to La Rochelle many times in the future as we... More
