We had such a wonderful dinner there several years ago that we had to return, this time for lunch. Set choice but sufficient. Huitres of course and fish. Delighted with Ile Flottante.

Visited at the start of the evening with hungry children, following a day exploring town. The level of service was exceptional with the waiter allowing us to enter the restaurant before the start of service at 7pm. We all ate a variety of seafood dishes...More

The oysters were fabulous even if we did wait an awfully long time time before they were served and I would have even forgiven the lateness of our main courses but when my sardines arrived barely warm after what seemed an eternity this girl wasn't...More

I definitely recommend this place! Good food, quite a few choices in the menu, fresh sea food, reasonable wine list and fair price.

La Rochelle is famous for its seafood and Andre's restaurant was recommended to us. The restaurant did not disappoint; great seafood enjoyed by the whole family. Would recommend.

My son and girlfriend wanted to experience great sea food and it was served "in spades". The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff very attentive. A little higher in price than many in the harbour but still excellent value.

This restaurant is at the north end of the port close to the Tour de Chaines. We had dinner here, and although we did not over-stress the kitchen (modules-fritters and a salad), were not disappointed. The service was particularly good. There are two sides to...More

For over 70 years, le Bar Andre has welcomed diners aboard a ship "moored" at the foot of the towers in the old port of La Rochelle. The menu mirrors the restaurant, an abundance of the sea's treasures. The seafood and shellfish arrive daily direct from the local fish market. Like the two towers, Le Bar Andre is a La Rochelle landmark, embarking its clientele on a delicious seafarer's journey.--Situe sur le vieux port de La Rochelle, au pied des tours, le Bar Andre vous accueille depuis plus de 70 ans dans un "navire amarre" aux multiples ambiances. La carte est a l'image du restaurant qui defend corps et ames les joyaux de la mer. Les fruits de mer et coquillages arrivent donc quotidiennement en direct de la criee locale rochelaise. A l'instar des deux tours, le Bar Andre est une figure incontournable de la Rochelle qui embarque ses clients pour un voyage aux saveurs marines.
