Got a table for 4 on the evening of 27th July and from what we saw from outside walking past we were hoping for a good meal. The service was slow, the food was not the best, I had the entrecote steak, which came with a salad and fries, the steak was tasty but very chewy, the fries were soggy... More

This restaurant is one of many in the pleasant street in La Rochelle. Its menu offered something a bit different and even the pizza selection was unusual. We opted for the two course lunch at €17.50 per head, having nems and croquetas for starters. This was followed by a burger made from minced duck and with a layer of foie... More

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant so much that we ended up eating here two nights in a row... The service is excellent, the atmosphere inside and outside is also excellent. For starters I had the Oeuf Cocotte (and nearly everyone around me as well) which was excellent. On one of the nights I had the "Hambur-Gers et frites"... More

I doubt if you will do better than this restaurant for food quality and service. The four of us, two adults and two children, loved the food. Our youngest daughter is hard to please with food but she asked us to return the following night and we were equally pleased. Well done to all.

This is one of our top restaurants in la rochelle this was our 3rd visit but 1st as a couple the other times were with family. We had a lovely romantic dinner, really tasty burger and great fois gras. Had to take one point off the score though cos that evening there were a lot of little flies around the... More

First impression: excellent service and food presentation. Second impression, the gustatory one: very tasty, made with fresh, local ingredients. The gazpacho, in particular, was a yummy work of art. Someone in the kitchen knows what they're doing. The house Bordeaux was absolutely fit for the occasion. We sat outside on the busy street but the inside of the restaurant is... More

We have eaten here before and often had the cote de boeuf which is excellent. Tonight I had the fish of the day and my wife had the mussels. Both were excellent again. Good service and a reasonable price; €68 including a bottle of wine and an aperitif.

Two hungry people, late at night, most restaurants have just closed .... desperation sets in - we don't want to go home and we need food! Picture a friendly smile, a YES - we are still open and "voila" we were happy. That was Baitona last week! We shared a house delicacy - chef's own invention -"les moules à la... More

Probably the best of the 5 restaurants we ate at in La Rochelle when we (20 cyclists) toured there in June 2014. Made us very welcome, provided excellent service and the food/wine was superb. Very happy with the price charged. We will be back in 2015 should we tour to La Rochelle again.

Good cooking and friendly service, shame about the limited wine options. We had the set menu which is good value at 26 or 29 euros, for 2 or 3 courses. Both had the foie gras, which was ok but not special. The moules marinieres were excellent though. Arriving on sizzling cast iron dishes they oozed tomato and garlic sauce and... More
