Located just outside La Rochelle, in the charming seaside resort of Châtelaillon-Plage, the restaurant invites you to savor the moment. Time seems to slow down in this warm, intimate setting overlooking the ocean. For lunch or dinner, enjoy exceptional dishes prepared by our attentive team.

Discover bistronomic cuisine from land and sea, created by Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire using local produce and herbs from the kitchen garden. A children's menu allows you to invite the whole family around the table.

In fine weather, you can relax on the terrace bordering the landscaped grounds. Scan the horizon and sketch the outlines of the Charente coast's flagship islands. Fancy a refreshing, trendy cocktail? The bar's signature drink puts garden thyme in the spotlight, with a homemade syrup and delicate foam combined with cognac, lime juice and honey.

Breathe in the fresh air of the Atlantic coast and come and enjoy moments of relaxation and conviviality with your loved ones or colleagues, whatever the occasion.
