    (Translated by Google) A must-see in La Rochelle!
    It was in a very beautiful restaurant with a magnificent view that we had the pleasure of being taken away for a superb dinner. The prices are absolutely correct in relation to the quality offered and the service is impeccable, whether for the meal or the wines.
    We will be back soon!

    Un incontournable de La Rochelle !

    (Translated by Google) Arrived at 8 p.m., cocktails and starters received quickly and main courses received at 9:35 p.m., there were only 2 of us. It was good, the waiter was nice, the setting too but the end result was a bill of 116 euros for a meal that took 1h45 , we did not take advantage of the main course because we were so “annoyed” by the situation. An ordering application bug (we weren't the only ones) then you also have to ask yourself questions in service and in the kitchen if no dish is requested and if all the customers are waiting everywhere? Nothing bad just an observation and an evening in the wind for a night in La Rochelle…

    Arrivé 20h, cocktails et entrées réceptionné rapidement et plats de résistance réceptionné à 21h35, nous n’étions que 2. C’était bon, le serveur était sympa le cadre aussi mais le final une note à 116 euros pour un repas qui a pris 1h45, nous n’avons pas profité du plat de résistance tellement nous etions «énervé » de la situation. Un bug d’application de commande (nous n’étions pas les seuls) après faut aussi se poser des questions en service et en cuisine si aucun plat n’est demandé et si tous les clients attendent partout ? Rien de méchant juste un constat et une soirée dans le vents pour une nuit sur La Rochelle …
