We dined at Le Marylou tonight and it was definitely worth the visit. The food was absolutely amazing and the service was fantastic. This was the best dinner we've had in La Rochelle. We went for the two course menu and found that the portion...More

This is not in the tourist "hot spots" and all the better for it. The outside is not particularly attractive, but so what. Inside it's quite charming, as are the staff. Most importantly, the food is great and the menu of the day offers good...More

La Rochelle restaurants are quite pricey but this one is exceptional value for really well prepared and cooked food. We had an aperitif, lovely two course meal and a carafe of wine for less than £20 a head. Excellent service as well.

You can cook your own food here on a very hot stone. The prices are very reasonable. The service excellent. This place is off the main drags, but well worth the effort to find it. Not crowded. Everything we ate was very good. If there...More

Within easy walking distance of La Rochelle's excellent, central market this unpreprocessing, modest restaurant provides truly excellent food at very modest prices. For example three of us had a full lunch with a decent bottle of wine for €78. They offer speciality cuisine where you...More
