La Saveur Vivre offers a limited menu that allows the chef to get everything just right and in our case that is exactly what we experienced. Knowledgeable and helpful service added to the enjoyment of the evening. Prices for both food and wine were modest relative to the quality. The modern, spare design matched perfectly with the approach of the... More

We knew Le Saveur Vivre was close to our hotel (The Best Western Hôtel Champagne), but just how close was a surprise; it is steps away. We made a reservation through the hotel, which was a good idea as people who were 'walk ins' were turned away because it was full. We so enjoyed our experience at this restaurant, we... More

We chose this restaurant as it was five minutes walk from our Best Western Hotel. We had the set menu at 29.50 Euros which consisted of sardines as a starter, roast beef with a courgette crumble and an apricot and sorbet dessert. The food was excellent and the service attentive. We really enjoyed our visit.

Our party of three all enjoyed the seasonal Autumn menu for dinner- very good value at 29 Euros. While not innovative fine dining the meal was tasty and well executed. Although only one of the two wait staff were on duty the service was excellent on a busy Tuesday night. A reasonable choice of wines on offer also. We did... More

It was an accident that I ordered the vegetarian meal. It was excellent and quite varied. Lots of choice on this very well presented plate. Lively spot with all the tables full and patrons waiting. A very good value and a excellent meal.

This little gem of a restaurant was discovered purely by chance as I arrived late in La Rochelle and tired from a long day travelling to find my hotel does not have a restaurant so had to go on the hunt! What a find. Lovely chic and fashionable place full of charm and wonderful welcoming staff. Likewise the food was... More

One of the better places I have eaten in La Rochelle, I would be happy to reccommend it. Not a big menu but interesting and the flavours were fresh. Good to, to walk to a restaurant in a slightly different area to the old port but central none the less.

In August 2016 the set meal was just a single choice, sardines to start, roast beef, and fruit and sorbet dessert. Cost 29.50 €. The a la carte was also a limited choice. But the quality of every dish is fantastic. If the chef has only a few dishes to concentrate on, each can be terrific. If he has many,... More

We had a wonderful little meal here on our one night in La Rochelle. The staff were excellent and explained all the dishes to us if needed. The restaurant is casual in a good way - we were made to feel very welcome from the start. The food itself was absolutely faultless. Snail Bruschetta and Cerviche to start - both... More

Saw the very high recommendations on Trip Advisor and we booked Saturday night here. I had the Menu D'Ete which was a beautiful sardines with confit tomatoes and then steak poivre with a fantastic ratatouille and crumble. Took a flier on the wine with a Cote de Bergerac which was absolutely divine. Highly recommend this when you are in La... More
