I had a 22 euro set menu: 6 good oysters, a mediocre rayfish (too much butter), and a fromage platter with 3 standard supermarket style cheeses. Indifferent service. I would not recommend it.

I chose this restaurant because of its tripadvisor reviews. I should have noticed they were old. 19€ really does not worth it for a menu. My fish was as good as a frozen meal from Picard (which is not good). Far too cooked and dry. Side dish whee not better. Desert does not make it better. Creme brulé was rough and directly comming out of the fridge (not roasted before serving).

Dined here twice on our latest holiday to La Rochelle [we've probably eaten here about half a dozen times].
The food is good and the set menus good value. I would recommend booking in advance and aiming to eat a little earlier. We found that once past 2030 the restaurant was packed out and the service noticeably slower.

We visited this restaurant in September 2013 based on the reviews of its fruit de mer. We were was sadly disappointed. the langoustines were tiny and there were rather too many whelks for my liking; the restaurant had very few diners for a Friday evening. In contrast, the restaurant next door - La Table Basque was bursting with diners - we wish we'd eaten there!

Two visits this holiday - just as good as 1st visit in 2009. The point is it has a simple relaxed cafe ambience, lovely welcoming staff and great fruit de mer and fish but also a meat option plus yummy puddings. If looking for high end dinning you are missing the point. 3 courses including the fruit de mer starter with oysters and langoustine etc etc - it’s one of the reasons we love visiting La Rochelle for sailing events at Minimes.
