Recommended Restaurants

Chatelaillon

  1. Les Bain des Fleurs Tel:- 05 46 56 00 58

A creperie serving crepes and gauffres and very good Normandy cider. Run by an energetic young couple. Try for a table outside on the promenade, inside gets a bit cramped.

  1. Les Flots Tel:- 05 46 56 23 42

A mention in the Michelin Guide – A bistro atmosphere – Manager Eric, has a strange sense of humour, especially when he tries to speak English, but offers a great ‘menu’ at €26.50 for four courses with plenty of choice – the ‘pate chaud’ as an entrée is quite delicious! A haunt of the Parisian Tourists some of whom practically live there!

  1. L’Acadie St-Victor Tel:- 05 46 56 25 13

Also in the Michelin Guide – white table cloths and a little old-fashioned but people come from far and wide to taste the delights of this tightly run restaurant. The ‘menu’ is a little more expensive than Les Flots yet offers good value for money.

  1. La Croisette Tel:- 05 46 56 36 90

One of the restaurants in the ‘Casino Complex’. A good basic restaurant which should not disappoint. Always some sort of ‘formule’ and ‘plat du jour’ – gets busy and it is preferable to book a table on the terrace outside.

  1. Le Grand Bleu Tel:- 05 46 56 22 46

Brasserie style and good for moules frites washed down with a pichet of rose! Bag a table on the promenade and watch the world go by!

Les Boucheleurs – small fishing village just past the sailing port

Le Poseidon –

Basic French cooking with a seafood slant – great for Moules Frites.

Mirko al Mare –

Superb Italian cuisine, wonderful pizzas and fish dishes of the day.

La Rochelle – check out the Michelin and other guides

Andre –

An institution – a huge, mainly fish restaurant – see them opening the oysters on the pavement and loading the fish platters – a unique experience. Go to Les Minimes and take the small electric boat across the estuary to the port….Andre is opposite on your de-embarkation!
