    • This small restaurant takes place in the heart of the city center, in an alley overlooking the Old Port.

      Created by Cyril Brilleau, accustomed to the old rum bar of the same name, it offers two different worlds. We particularly appreciate the two small table in the rue du Port but also the backyard that offers more calm.

      • Of course here, the stars of the menu are the oysters : full sea of the Boucholeurs or special traditional Roumégous house, more refined.

      • Other seafood products, always very fresh, are offered : smoked salmon with salt from Ré island or homemade sardine rillettes.

      • If you don’t like seafood, don’t worry ! The Comptoir also offers products from the farm such as dried sausage, a mature cheeses plate or local meats, and even vinegar Salicorne sprouts.

      • For dessert, only one desire : devour the regional sweets : Jonchée (fresh local cheese) with bitter almond water and brown sugar, cheese cake and the delicious homemade gingerbread and caramel cream with honey.

      Note that two menus are offered : sea and terroir

    Had a lovely lunch here, the terrace was full but the inside still had space for 4 at 1300 on a Sunday. The art is super cute and service is really great. We highly recommend the garlic grilled shrimp, the grilled sardines, the mussels and the fish. Basically everything we got was flavorful and fresh.

    Seating between rather touristy restaurants, sits a tiny corridors filled with local savory delicacies! On the menu: fresh sea food and oyster, cheese salad, fish soup and other local specialties. Go for the 20€ menu. Available either "land" (meats and earthy options) or like us the sea option: starter (fish soup on that day) sea food plater (oyster, shrimps, ...) And local biscuits for dessert. not only Unbeatable value for money but also savory with a glass of local white wine. Would recommend a different soundtrack than the radio but that's a minor defect. Lunch today was packed at 1pm and we were lucky to find seats.

    Nice place with very good quality selected food! Very fresh and tasty fruit de mer with aioli, (especially their prawns and byllots,) good quality cheeses and wines. Very friendly service from the couple who runs the place!
