    • Once upon a time, there were three childhood friends who decided to buy a restaurant. After a few months of negotiations, the deal was signed on Friday March 13, 2020. Three days later, the world stopped, stay home.

      This restaurant has its history, so do buyers.

      Oliver and Xavier, friends since boarding school in 4th year, and Charline, wife of Xavier and friend of the two boys since high school: a long story there too... After different paths of life (Bordeaux for one, Parisian for the two others), the three friends meet on the Ile de Ré.

      After a first experience in catering with Le Clocher (Ars en Ré), Xavier has a new project, even crazier than the first: to buy back the Chat Botté.

      So here we are in March 2020. The restaurant signed, Olivier worked every day to create this new place, which looks like all three of them. Intensive period in a context that can be described today as historic.

      On Wednesday June 24, 2020 La Villa was born. A great success from the first days. Four months later, La Villa closed its doors until June 2021: the success of the summer of 2020 was largely confirmed in 2021. People come there to enjoy a breakfast in front of the market, for lunch of clams, oysters , salads, pancakes, fish of the day... Dinner of a beautiful prime rib to share. And finish with a delicious cocktail created by Léa, while watching the garden of the Villa adorn itself with soft evening colors.

    Lunch on the terrace was fabulous. A large choice of dishes across all price ranges. I had a crevette and avocado salad followed by a simple but extremely tasty chicken curry with rice. A kir cassis and local rosé went alongside. Service was friendly and efficient. Beautiful setting on the outside terrace with canopy shading. Would definitely recommend.

    I came with a couple of friends on a Friday night. As it's still off season on the island, it was a quiet evening though we weren't the only ones there. There was a good choice on the menu and I went with moules au curry, which were very good with enough sauce to dunk my fries in and I really enjoyed it. For dessert, I had a caramel liégeois, because I prefer over chocolate. It was a good glass full of caramel sauce, ice cream and whipped cream. I wasn't able to finish it! It was a good place to come and catch up with my friends and I really appreciated the quiet atmosphere.

    The place is really beautiful 5 stars on that account, but I think it's a little overpriced, the food was good but not amazing and there was only one waitress so she was a little overwhelmed. It's a shame because the place is really pretty both interior and the garden.
