Where to eat in La Rochelle?
From the great food in Nantes we headed La Rochelle – the home of Seafood. so here’s my quick guide for where to eat in La Rochelle
On the search for lunch we couldn’t really decide where to eat. The variety of restaurants and place to eat in La Rochelle is incredible and most of the places on lunch time will be very full.
Lunch time at Le Bistrot du Port
The reason we chose this place was because it was packed and the plates on table looked impressive. So we decided to order a plate to share of shrimp, oysters, mussels and whelk (sea snail). Our plate looked impressive as we were expecting, however the quality of the food wasn’t as good as it seemed. The shrimps and oysters were ok, however the mussels were poor and weren’t made well and the whelk didn’t taste as good as it should have been.

Dinner at Le Bar André
After the disappointment on lunch time we decided to ask for recommendations from locals and since two mentioned the same place we had the feeling that dinner at Le Bar Andre will meet our expectations. guess what? big time! Anna took set menu with started, main and dessert and I went for the steak. The fish soup on set menu was big and very fresh (according to Anna) and the fish of the day was great especially the side dish which tasted amazingly. My steak was great too. soft and juicy. loved the fries. For dessert we took the Cassata Charentaise which was light and refreshing.

Pre-Breakfast at La Rochelle framers market
If you are food lover and also wants to buy some good quality treats to take back home I would definitely recommend this market. We tried some sausages, cheese, pastry and also bought some cheese to take out with us. Which was a great start of the day.

Brunch at Prao
We managed to go for brunch in Prao just before we left La Rochelle. It’s better to make reservation because the place get quite full very quickly (take in mind that they open on sunday’s at 11am). I’ve got a big and tasty breakfast and Anna went from the slim version of it and we both loved it. The vibe and service at this place was excellent.
