In September we had lunch over several days. Never disappointed. Service is rapid and pleasurable. The menu always has interesting choises ant reasonable prices. Seafood is of course the prime, but their puddings (deserts9 can be worth a detour by themselves. Great atmosphere and of course busy. Reservations recommended.

Lovely fresh seafood, prawns and great home made puds. Not been disappointed in 6 years! Simple, relaxed, a favourite place with great memories now.

I had a 22 euro set menu: 6 good oysters, a mediocre rayfish (too much butter), and a fromage platter with 3 standard supermarket style cheeses. Indifferent service. I would not recommend it.

I chose this restaurant because of its tripadvisor reviews. I should have noticed they were old. 19€ really does not worth it for a menu. My fish was as good as a frozen meal from Picard (which is not good). Far too cooked and dry. Side dish whee not better. Desert does not make it better. Creme brulé was rough... More

Dined here twice on our latest holiday to La Rochelle [we've probably eaten here about half a dozen times]. The food is good and the set menus good value. I would recommend booking in advance and aiming to eat a little earlier. We found that once past 2030 the restaurant was packed out and the service noticeably slower.

We visited this restaurant in September 2013 based on the reviews of its fruit de mer. We were was sadly disappointed. the langoustines were tiny and there were rather too many whelks for my liking; the restaurant had very few diners for a Friday evening. In contrast, the restaurant next door - La Table Basque was bursting with diners -... More

Two visits this holiday - just as good as 1st visit in 2009. The point is it has a simple relaxed cafe ambience, lovely welcoming staff and great fruit de mer and fish but also a meat option plus yummy puddings. If looking for high end dinning you are missing the point. 3 courses including the fruit de mer starter... More

On a very damp day, and after seeing the sights of La Rochelle, we decided to walk to Port des Minimes. The route went through depressing areas, and the rain started to come down in buckets. It was so nice to arrive at Marie Galante and find it full of cheerful diners, welcoming staff, and the most delicious assiette de... More

Trip adivsor reviews were good so i kept an eye out for this place when walking in this area. It does not look like much from the outside due to plastic furniture, decking etc but it was a lovely restaurant inside. Although it is set back a little from the marina we sat by the window and enjoyed seeing the... More
