We visited the island in1989 on our first trip to France as a couple and on Tuesday last a scorcher of day we enjoyed a return visit. We happened on Le Velo Noir located in back street and both were delighted with our lunch. The food, service and ambiance of the restaurant was great, this place deserves to be supported.

Had a lunch for four people at Le velo noir today (two adult couples). Both food and service were excellent. Very nice oysters and delicious octopus main course. To be recommended.

Was in our top 3 favorite places to eat in Noirmoutiers. We loved the place, very friendly and homy decoration, friendly and very efficient service and of course the food was great and very inventive. As ziggy 1009, we just regretted that there was no terrace, but it's no big deal when you enjoy what's in your plate ! A... More

We loved the look of this place and had to wait a couple of days for a table as they were so busy. We weren't disappointed. The food was really excellent, the highlights being a sesame crusted tuna fillet with a herb salad and a cuttlefish dish with herbs and black olives. Service was friendly and entirely in French (which... More

We met people who recommended us this restaurant and it was more than worth it: great food, excellent service, small prices. Too bad it was too small to have a terrace ;-)

This was our favourite restaurant of 3 during our stay. It is a small place so you need to book. The food was lovely - great oysters and delicious fish perfectly served. Only downside (and I am being picky here) was that we would have appreciated a wine 'bucket' to keep the wine cool on a very hot evening.

Years I walked past this restaurant from the very day it started. This year we finally stumled in on a lost afternoon and we were surprised with the simple elegance of the food and the hospitality. The place has only a handfull of tables and has an air of amateurisme about it which kept us avoiding it But we were... More

Follow the advise of the manager of the restaurant and you will not be dissapointed. Try the desserts as well. It's a small place but with a huge atmosphere. Wortwhile the trip.
