We first went here 30+years ago and manged to find it again this August holiday with the extended family joining us. The service is friendly, professional and well managed. The food, seafood especially, is beautifully cooked and there is an imaginative use of sauces and marinades, such as in the sardines starter, the dip to accompany the langoustines, and in... More

As with every summer, noirmoutier is packed.. This little restaurant is good provided you are lucky enough to pick a day with no crowd. The food is decent, don't get me wrong, but standards will dip, as we have found, these passed 2 years..whenever there is a crowd. Consistency is not their forte.. This year our lobster is overdone, not... More

There is a good choice of fish and meat on the menu. The food is almost nouvelle cuisine with smaller portions than other restaurants but all beautifully cooked and... More

We cycled to this lovely spot, just out of town and on a main road although pretty noiseless inside. The glass-sided dining room appears to be a nicely constructed extension onto an older property, and faces the étier with calm views of greenery and water life (lots of fish can be seen swimming), and the tide rises and falls to...

Travelling in France with coeliac disease is not the easiest, and especially if you still look for gourmet food. This restaurant met the expectations and proved to be able to handle gluten free requirements.

Very nice location just a few hundred metres outside the main town, overlooking a stream in the salt flats. They've even sunk a fishing boat right outside the window for your viewing pleasure. Nice views from big windows in the back room. Very friendly staff (with absolutely no English, so if that's a problem for you, be warned)... They cheerfully... More

We ate lunch here on 15 November & were very positively surprised at the quality of the cuisine, the generosity size of the plates, the service, the decor and very importantly the modest size of the bill. The price/quality equation at L'Etier is quite amazing. For example, the Assiete Fruits de Mer consisted of 6 oysters, 6 clams, 6 large... More
