Our hotel recommended Le Bar Andre for seafood. We arrived, and were walked through several large, differently decorated rooms, until seated at a very pleasant dining area. Several tables were filled, and the waiter was very competent and helpful in handling our order. The fish was well cooked, and we had a pleasant evening. I would be concerned dining here... More

Amongst the best seafood restaurants I have eaten in with a speciality of the Crustaces (mixed shellfish - lobster, crab, langoustine etc.). Certainly not cheap but worth every penny.

We wanted to get seafood in La Rochelle (what else?) and searched in internet. This one was mentioned in Michelin, and it is very close to harbor so we dropped in. It is clearly very popular: It is very big, there are I think about 10 different rooms decorated in all kind of ship-style, and all full of customers. The... More

For oysters and sea food platters, this place is great as they're well presented and freshly prepared outside the restaurant. We unfortunately went for the fish and chips which was somewhat greasy and nothing special. Another time, we'd return and make a different choice.

We had a seafood platter to share and some amazing wine. As many reviews say, the restaurant is on the expensive side but the seafood is very fresh and really delicious. The decor is also really interesting - love the maritime theme. Also noticed that it is very dog friendly.

Le Bistrot André shares a building with Le Restaurant André. On the night we were there the bistrot was by far the busier. The ambience and decoration is that of a traditional French brasserie. Staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient. In addition to the 'menu of the day' there is an extensive a la carte menu. The emphasis is on... More

Bar Andre is where the elite meet to eat in La Rochelle and it's not hard to see why. The food is great, the service is friendly and professional, the location ideal and the ambiance perfect for this seaport city. The fish soup is a special delight.

This is a restaurant rather than a bar, very close to the quay. Excellent seafod and I would recommend the Moule Mouclade (a first for me and I am looking out for it again).

For over 70 years, le Bar Andre has welcomed diners aboard a ship "moored" at the foot of the towers in the old port of La Rochelle. The menu mirrors the restaurant, an abundance of the sea's treasures. The seafood and shellfish arrive daily direct from the local fish market. Like the two towers, Le Bar Andre is a La Rochelle landmark, embarking its clientele on a delicious seafarer's journey.--Situe sur le vieux port de La Rochelle, au pied des tours, le Bar Andre vous accueille depuis plus de 70 ans dans un "navire amarre" aux multiples ambiances. La carte est a l'image du restaurant qui defend corps et ames les joyaux de la mer. Les fruits de mer et coquillages arrivent donc quotidiennement en direct de la criee locale rochelaise. A l'instar des deux tours, le Bar Andre est une figure incontournable de la Rochelle qui embarque ses clients pour un voyage aux saveurs marines.
