I love this place. I went 5 time over the years for various occasions. This place has consistently offered quality food, which uses local ingredients but gives it a modern twist. We also enjoyed an old pinault from the region. From starter to dessert we had delicious dishes (the Wok de Tourteau, and the Lotte a la vanille were sublime).... More

We visited this restaurant for the third time recently and were not disappointed. The location is stunning - especially on a sunny summer's day. We enjoyed a very leisurely lunch on the terrace overlooking the sea. Service was very good - attentive but not over the top. Menu choices were very good and not overly expensive.Definitely worth a visit.

Seeing that this hotel had a restaurant accepting outside customers we decided to try. Despite the windy and wet autumn day we were placed on a fully covered, heated terrace overlooking the sea, lovely view and more than warm enough. We both took the 29€ menu. Oysters for the lady and Foie Gras for me, served with different jams and... More

We were amazed that we could hardly park when we arrived. The car park and the garden were jam-packed full with cars, all French ones. We soon discovered that this restaurant is so well-regarded that you had to book well in advance, and we were lucky that we were prepared to wait. And it was worth the wait indeed. Position... More

Nicely presented and cooked food. We went of the fixed priced menu and found it very acceptable. More of a 'proper' restaurant than the general oyster/ mussel ones (which are good for that sort of thing - and cheaper!). Booking essential - it was full on our first attempt and everywhere else seemed empty!

We had an evening meal there on a dull evening in mid-May. I would guess L'Albatros trades on the view over the estuary which we found flat and uninteresting. Perhaps as we are from New Zealand we expected more spectacle. We certainly did not expect to be charged 18Euro for a 1/2 bottle of bland sauvingon blanc.

Description
Gourmet Table along the beach, a priviledged location between earth and ocean, at the very south of Oleron island. At any time whatever the season, the view is amazing from the nice dining room overlooking the sea, or from the heated terrace ; at upper tide, on the outside summer terraces , the waves are coming very close...
Our Chef and his team cook local products on the spot, fish from local fishing and auctions, oysters from various producers, beautiful meats.
Menus, formulas, glasses of good wines, vegetarian or dietetic meals, and everyday "coming back from the mart", the suggestion of the day !
