My husband and I went there for lunch and were impressed from the moment we walked in: the service was impeccable and the food out of this world: fine, fresh, beautifully presented. We highly recommend. It is pricey but worth the price especially for a...More

The gastronomic set menu was superbly balanced and included all my favourites, Foie Gras, Turbot, Lobster and fabulous desserts. A little formal, but it was fine dining after all. Well worth a visit.More

Very nice restaurant. The personal is friendly and the food is delicious. My meat anyhow was a little hard for my taste and I was expecting much more. Anyhow everything else- a starter, lunch and a dessert were delicious!More

The food was delicious, but when the entire meal is served so quickly it ruins the experience and so it is not worth the expense. We stat down at 8pm and by 9pm, we had been served, amus bouche, two starters and the main! We...More

We were really excited about our booking here but a bit disappointed with some of the food with a couple of dishes seeming a little overdone (turbot and crab lasagne). Service was fantastic though.More

Description
LES FLOTS, UN OCÉAN DE SAVEURS

C’est au pied de la Tour de la Chaîne que se trouve cet ancien estaminet du XVIIIème siècle. Protégé par les tours et face au spectacle permanent du Vieux Port, le restaurant Les Flots est un endroit incontournable à La Rochelle, riche d’une histoire qui a commencé en 1945.

Même si cet établissement a toujours fait partie du paysage rochelais, du bar bistrot qu’il était, il n’en reste qu’un vague souvenir… Le 17 Décembre 1997, Grégory Coutanceau prend la direction des lieux, c’est sa première affaire, il n’a que 22 ans et des rêves plein la tête, c’est le début de la grande histoire des Flots.

Vous y dégusterez une cuisine de la mer confectionnée avec des produits de grande qualité, et cuisinés avec finesse et originalité. Tout ceci mis harmonieusement en scène par une équipe de salle jeune et dynamique.
