    We eat at Le Petit Nicolas about three or four times a year since two years, we have never been disappointed. The service is very friendly, the food is excellent and the "inspiration du chef" always a welcome surprise. Yes it doesn't look much from the outside, but we prefer it that way - simple, honest , very good!

    We went to the restaurant for our anniversary and we’re completely blown away. The wine, the bread, the food was so amazing. Any time we return to La Rochelle, we will definitely eat here again.

    What a gem! Fantastic for gluten free. They don’t have anything specifically gluten free but know their ingredients in every dish and are happy to adapt the sauce etc It’s more that most dishes are neutrally gluten free which I always prefer! All the dishes were superb and we finished every bite. Husband and I went with 14yr old son who will eat/try anything and a rather more fussy 12yr old daughter. Both children and both adults were able to have wonderful meals. Make sure you book, even if just on the day like we did. It’s only a small restaurant and they don’t seem to try to turn over the tables.

    Good find in La Rochelle. Set back from the busy quayside with only a dozen or so tables ( so best to book ahead) the menu was innovative and the dishes beautifully presented with wonderful flavors. A triumph we look forward to returning to.

    The food was spectacular. We were surprised. Ordered the duck. Taste combinations were titillating to the tongue. My French friends were impressed and said that they would come again!

    Wonderful evening with perfect dinner. The host was very nice and helping, they even had a children chair for our little boy! The chef’s recommendation were fresh, creative and an explosion of flavors in many directions!! The goose liver was accompanied with some surprises to challenge our taste in a very positive way. Both main courses were perfect and fresh ingridiencea were used. The menu is not very big but all dishes sounded excellent and everyone will find some perfect dinner there! The wine list ist not really big but we’ll sorted from most French regions and the wines are very moderated prices! Overall a wonderful experience in a. Ice place with an excellent chef and a great crew!!! We will be back for sure!!

    This Hidden Treasure is a Must I booked this restaurant based on the TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. I have to be honest we nearly cancelled as we walked past and viewed the menu which was not terribly extensive. I then went back and re-read the reviews and decided that we had to go. I am so pleased that we did. From start to finish our whole experience was just lovely. The staff are enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable. When the food arrived our tastebuds were delighted. My fois gras was sublime. It was so creamy and delicious. My husbands tuna was outstanding, his words. I then had the chefs suggestion; langostine with mash, not two foods I would normally associate with each other but it worked wonderfully. My husband had the hake which came on a blanket of foam, a veritable masterpiece. We then shared desert and cheese all lovely. My advice, do not go to La Rochelle without visiting this restaurant. But make sure you make a booking via Fork.
