We didn't reserve but had a table with great service, fantastic food and bonne ambiance. Having spent 3 days in town and been underwhelmed by the fare on offer, this was a welcome relief. Highly recommended.

On the terasse expect small tables and dingy chairs. Menu focuses of course on shellfish and seafood. Local grey shrimps are very small,not that tasty. Oysters are quite good. The local white wine from Ile d'Oleron is a Chardonnay that tastes like a California Chardonnay,not...More
