Was here three years ago. Turns out it's kept it's standards for kitchen & service. I had a great evening with perfect food, wine & atmosphere.

Super varied menu with plenty of choice in the set menu with blackboard specials available too - even for evening diners. Very reasonably priced and delicious fresh food. Staff were perfectly happy to practise their English when required! The restaurant was quite quickly full without any noticable slowing of service. I enjoyed the mix of French, English and other European... More

If you're looking for a warm,friendly restaurant with amazing food and local character this is the place for you. The staff are helpful and the prices won't break the bank. Recommend the locally caught fish and mussels.

Look this is one of the many restaurants in La Rochelle. Why we finally choose this one is not to explain but it looked to us better as the rest. The offered menu is attractive priced and the wine is value for money. Good but not superb, we paid 98.5 euro for 2 menu, 1 bottle wine, 1 bottle mineral... More

The meal was very well presented and was delicious. The restaurant itself is decorated in a "fisherman" theme, but with taste. The service was very slow...we felt as if we were eating in an "oubliettes". Several customers were seated after us and left a half an hour before we did!

Nice place, good menu, not expensive. Food in general was good. Unfortunately there was sand in all salads and the mussels and no satisfactory solution was provided.

A good value meal, well served in comfortable surrounding. We ate off the set menu and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. All the courses were tasty (salad to start/ sea bream and tuna main course & I had the canale dessert whist my husband had the desert platter). Service was good too.
