I have been here on a few occasions with my parents and my wife. It is perfect. The food is an utter pleasure for all the senses and the service is brilliant to match the food. The attentive staff make the experience great. A must go if you are in Royan, or actually anywhere in France. Make sure you go... More

This is my second review of La Jabotière, again following a Valentine's evening dinner. In the intervening year we have enjoyed meals here many many times, and never ever come away less that completely thrilled. Since my previous review was in French, I'll now contribute in English which might perhaps attract a different readership. My wife and I still rate... More

This is a really nice classy restaurant practically on the beach. The food is elegant and tastes great. The service is good but a little aloof. If you are willing to pay a little extra then this is the place to eat.

Sunday lunch on the terrace looking at the beach. Seafood delicious as well as everything else our party of four chose. Service was fine except the waiter kept forgetting our bread!

We had an amazingly delicious night of food and wine here with friends. The food is utterly impeccably prepared and presented (ate from the brasserie menu but seated in the main restaurant). Generous and innovative and fresh. Lovely service and accommodated our sleepy child well on a lovely table. I was so impressed. Very much recommended.

What a HUGE disappointment - having heard GREAT things about this restaurant we took visiting friends from the UK here for lunch; there were only TWO things left on the starter menu on offer, the staff were surly and slow, they brought the wrong wine and refused to take it back and the steaks we ordered weren't cooked as we...

We popped in with no reservation and got a seat on the front overlooking the beach which was beautiful. Food was delicious. Services was great. Will definitely return.

Visited with family who live locally, without booking a table. Examined the 21 Euro lunch menu and spoke to the charming hostess who conducted us to a table with an excellent view of the sea, it was a little windy for us to sit on the patio but a lot did. The three course menu du jour became extended by... More
