Had lunch - so much nicer than the pavement cafes in the town/quay. Set in a small square, a group of tables & chairs under the shade of parasols and trees. No traffic - either vehicles or tourist hordes. Caesar salad was delicious as was the homemade beef burger & chips. Very pleasant efficient service ( the guy with the... More

Highlight of our trip to la rochelle. Staff (guy with beard) was so so friendly and welcoming. Goats cheese starter was FAB! I had fish main course and my husband had the fish and chip, both were absolutely fabulous x We ordered a bottle of red, which was also beautiful. Very welcoming and relaxing evening...highly recommend. Reasonable priced.

A great find whilst exploring La Rochelle old town. Set in a small square a short distance from the harbour front. Popular with locals for eating and for the bar. We had a beautiful freshly cooked seafood meal, although the house speciality is entrecote, accompanied by excellent local wine.

I passed several times from this small, hidden, and beautiful square in the Saint Nicolas area (walking distance from the city centre) and each time I wanted to stop by this little restaurant with tables outside, nice coloured plastic tablecloths - all very french... Finally I did it. Unfortunately the food was less then memorable (very "international" short menu with... More

We stumbled upon this small restaurant by chance. It's in a lovely little cobbled courtyard just off the main port but secluded and quiet. A large tree shades the area. There is a small menu but the food and ambience were superb. It's really worth the effort to find this lovely quirky restaurant.

Looks count! This little restaurant looked so typically French, dark wood, dark interior (but people sitting drinking outside too) that we thought it would deliver French cuisine. And it did. While we waited, the atmosphere was nearly out of a noir film - locals, young people, tourists all mixed. with some sun filtering through the door and old-fashioned lights barely... More

Lovely friendly little cafe in a little square just off the Rue St Nicholas ...which seems to be a younger more casual part of La Rochelle. I was part of a large fairly boisterous family gathering ...some of whom were eating ...some just drinking and enjoying the craic! I had the entrecote for my main course ....it was very good...

We happened on this attractive cafe/restaurant in a lovely little square tucked away within walking distance of the Vieux Port. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff, plus good food made it a perfect place to spend an evening away from the tourist tat. Loved the decor especially the varied oilcloth table tops and the colourful blankets provided for the outside tables... More

One of the best entrecôtes I ever had so surprised to read previous conflicting reviews. Starters were also very nice as was the wine selection. Lots of atmosphere around the location which seems to be popular with the locals and students
