This restaurant has served us well for years, especially whenever friends from the states are visiting, and we have never been disappointed. The two small dining rooms and outside terrace are graciously arranged so that conversations are easy and intimate, and the rooms in a grand old house are pretty and filled with light. The menu offers a selection of... More

This restaurant is a MUST! From the outside it does not seem like much, 3 to 4 tables on the sidewalk, the interior decorated with the old world charm. Difficult to get a table without reservation because the patrons know its a winner! The service was knowledgeable, jovial and attentive, the cuisine sensational, and almost too beautifull to eat!

around 8pm we were looking for a nice place for Dining. Almost not possible in this area without Reservation but Le Grand offered one last table. The Gin Tonic, the Pineau and the nice Service assisted us by studing the menu. The entrees (huitres poeless and a green gaspacho - real sweet) were a good choice. The mains (filet maquereaux...

Original menu (so hard to find in France): fresh langoustines barely cooked, excellent barbue, macaron au fromage bleu, and the lightest baba au rhum I have ever eaten. Delightful service in perfect setting. Could not recommend more - especially to the Michelin inspector.

We were 5 of us dining at Le Grand Four last night - and we had honestly one of the best dinners I have ever had, anywhere. It was truly exceptional. Not only completely delicious, but so beautifully presented, and the service was quick and truly excellent. Everything was perfect. We chose one of the set menus, which I think... More

We ate here on the last night of a very good holiday on Noirmoutier. ON previous nights we had eaten in an excellent restaurant called Le Chateau.As it happened they were closed on our last night so we asked them to recommend a restaurant similar to theirs and they recommended Le Grand Four. We went and found it pricy and... More

Noirmoutier-en-l'ile away from the crowds in the old part near the the castle is a very nice little town to walk through. Sitting behind the castle is a very fine michelin starred restaurant , which for the area where mostly crepes and pizzas are the norm is a great surprise. the food was top notch, decor, service etc of high...

We had a lovely dinner at Le Grand Four - the food was delicious, although be prepared for very 'bloody' meat courses and the staff really helpful despite quite a bit being lost in translation!

The food is good and the decor and setting is really nice. Service is a bit long, very smiling at the beginning, less toward the ends where they hurry around to manage requests from various tables. Having reserved specifying I am intolerant to gluten I still got "amuse bouche" with bread in it so I felt I had to check... More

While staying in Noirmoutier, we had dinner here two times. Approaching the restaurant it makes an elegant and inviting impression. One guy (tan, well dressed), probably the owner, is welcoming everybody in as they come into the restaurant. He does a hell of a job, really seems to love what he is doing, a rare breed. Always felt happy and... More
