The soul of a chef and a fisherman

The Chef


Christopher Coutanceau, a native of La Rochelle, grew up on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. A fishing and submarine hunting enthusiast, he spends his free time on the ocean and knows every hidden nook and cove of this Breton strait by heart.



The Chef’s Table


Enjoy intimate moments in this exclusive restaurant space where Christopher Coutanceau invites you to delight in a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable gastronomical experience.

Savour a memorable, bespoke interlude, imagined just for you.

This private salon, which can host between 2 to 8 guests, offers you a fantastic behind-the-scenes glimpse of the restaurant.



Menus & wines


Through his pure, delicate and iodized cuisine, the chef imagines a menu that is evermore eco-friendly as he pushes 'zero-waste' recipes to (and beyond) the limit. In addition to concern for the environment, you’ll enjoy a real taste discovery, where fabulous species of fish which are still rather unknown, such as whiting and wrasse, are centre staged.
