Description: 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.

“Not as good as in the past”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

We first visited Andre's some years ago and had a very fine meal. Not so now. Fish was average and portions a little mean, however carefully we chose from the menu. Service OK but clientele mostly tourists. Last time it was mostly locals, which I think is indicative. We'll try somewhere else next time. Prices too high.

“As all the others though better style”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

Good style, good service. Food OK but when I order fillets I don't expect the head as well. Overall better than many around the Old Port but the overall standard isn't that high.

“Good seafood but no better than elsewhere and more expensive”
Reviewed 9 August 2011

This was a mixed trip. The service was indifferent at best and the jazzy display outside of the preparations is not matched by anything inside. The food was OK. Oysters and langoustine were fresh - oysters especially were good, but in this region they ought to be. The cost was not worth the experience and a more careful choice, if seafood is what you want, will prove worth doing. We wish we had thought harder about this particular restaurant. Better, much better to be had here and Ile de Re.
