The best thing about this restaurant was the lively atmosphere. We had dinner here one evening in September, and the place was buzzing. There's a mixture of conventional tables and chairs and higher tables with stools. The food was good and the service was good - the price reasonable.

What comes to my mind in describing this place: a nice location close to (by) the seaside (top resto in this respect at Rivedoux), an informal and sontaneous welcome, low prices (where can you have a gin tonic at 6€?), a good cuisine and a very nice 'ambiance' (really, congrats!!). The only pity: you don't get the time to enjoy... More

We dined here on a really balmy July evening, there was live music and it was very busy so we booked the table. I can honestly say It was one of the best dining experiences out that I've had in a long time. My 1/2 crab was perfectly fresh, really superb. I then had tuna, which were raw rounds of... More

Stopped off here for a quick lunch on the way back to the airport. Had the "tapas" and chose the crevettes, sardine terrine and oysters. All very nicely prepared and exteremeny tasty. Service a bit haphazard (not sure who was supposed to b looking after us) - but overall a good experience.

Was very busy due to France vs Iceland match but they made up a table for us and we had a lovely steak frites meal. Great service from the owner.

After 16 miles of cycling, wheat beers and seafood lunch we retired to La Chaloupe for wine and more seafood. Not much English from the staff which made us work a little harder. Much to our amusement. The service here from the girls was excellent, showing great patience.

We were recommended to La Chaloupe at our hotel just along the road, and we enjoyed it so much we went back the next evening. It's not the place for a quiet meal. In fact it was heaving both nights. Food and drinks were passed across the bar to us, as there was no room for the serving staff to... More
