We chose this restaurant as it appeared to be mostly frequented by French people and was busy. The plat du jour offered soupe du poisson, which was excellent, as was the Mackeral main course. The Tiramisu deserves special mention. A solid rose was available by...More

Good choice of tasty mussel dishes. I enjoyed the burger and chips too which were well-presented. Dishes arrived quickly and service was good throughout.

I'ts hard to choose which restaurant to eat at along the quay in Port La Rochelle. We chose Le Canot and were not disappointed. A good and reasonably extensive menu with a strong seafood bias as would be expected. The food was good bistro standard,...More
