There are a great many restaurants in La Rochelle and picking a favourite is no easy job. However, for dining in small groups Au Gout du Jour takes some beating. The restaurant is lovely and cosy during the winter, cool in the summer with some outside seating. The food is very good, the service welcoming and the menu very firmly French. Au Gout du Jour on Tripadvisor.
Our other long term favourite in La Rochelle is Le Bout en Train, a little restaurant close to the market that produces consistantly good quality modern French cooking, and has a particularly fine wine list. Le Bout en Train on Tripadvisor.
For larger groups, Le Bar André -
There were halcyon days when eating out in France -
And then things started to change: restaurants started to cut corners by ordering from catering catalogues (the desserts were the first to suffer), menus became immobile, and chefs moved from being cooks to being food technicians.
Happily, there are signs of a change in direction. The number of restaurants making a point of doing things in house and using locally sourced ingredients is very much on the up (practically everywhere we recommend does this) and menus are consolidating, going back to basics.
Our very favourite restaurant -
