We were only staying one night in La Rochelle and were looking forward to a nice dinner. This restaurant was just off the Main Street and from the outside looked very inviting. The restaurant was pretty empty but we were given a table in the corner. I asked if we could move to another with a better view but was... More

Good looking restaurant, but it's the food that does the talking. My shrimp starter (prawn cocktail, but not as we know it) and monk fish main course were to die for, but Madam's steak really was as good as it gets. You don't get to choose how it's cooked: they cook it and they cook it right. I'm no great... More

This restaurant is situated at the mid corner of a vibrant cafe/restaurant street. We were looking for fine dining and we were not disappointed. Every course was mouth watering and beautifully presented. The wine list is extensive and not too expensive. A must have is the Grand Marnier Souffle! The staff were very helpful and friendly - including organising the... More

We visited this restaurant to celebrate my wifes birthday and were looking forward to a great night. The menu choices looked good and the staff seemed friendly. I had read a few negative reports about this place but I thought the writers were being picky. From the start we appeared to be in some sort of competition to see how... More

We arrived at about 2130 and could not understand the many different menus available, 3 plates for 37 or 49 or 70 or 100 euros...we wanted the 'surprise 'menu for 100 euros, but were advised it was too late- fair enough. having ordered a bottle of champagne, staff paid more attention and advised us to have 2 different menus. Appetisers,... More

The food at La Suite is the best we have had for a long time. Beautiful food presented perfectly and it is obvious the chefs are very talented. Unfortunately the food is let down by the waiting staff. Firstly it was unclear which were the staff- the waitresses all had black dresses on, but they were obviously their own as... More

First time I had Shrimp salad , avocado and grapefruit parmesan shortbread as a starter and Duck breast marinated in teriyaki duck , mashed potato and arugula for main course. The duck was just...

This place have a gourmet menu but also a cheaper which must be said to be very affordable. We choose the cheaper alternative and were not disappointed. We got a glimpse of what might be server in the more expensive menu and if we were to visit this restaurant again we would go for that menu.

The service, quality, and complementary appetisers make La Suite well worth the money. 3 of us spent 150€ easily, but enjoyed an exemplary meal to a fine dining standard. The steak and pork dishes are especially good and in particular the presentation is immaculate. Great traditional French food as well as a fairly diverse menu.
