Restaurant Christopher Coutanceau.

Restaurant on the seafront. France,La Rochelle

Unique in the world: Just imagine a world where your pleasure comes first

Nicolas Brossard, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

Concurrence beach stretches out at the foot of this beacon of gastronomy in the Charente. Just imagine a world where your pleasure comes first. The clocks have stopped on this Relais & Châteaux road to happiness letting you share a memorable experience. Today Christopher, the son, is in sole command. He has been strongly influenced by his father's legendary culinary rigour on which he puts his own personal stamp. However, the “signature” of the restaurant has not changed: superb seafood, sourced that very morning at the harbour market, creativity and passion for fine dining. Dare to ask for the secret behind that crispy line-caught sea bass in a shellfish foam.
