The oysters as a shared starter were excellent and the Normanque Seafood salad was fresh and delicious. Unfortunately, we had to wait too long for both courses and therefore this spoiled our experience of the meal. Would recommend employing some more waiting staff as the chef is excellent.

We ate twice here this year and have been in previous years. Excellent food (and good value) and really good service. The Fisk and seafood was outstanding. Wine was also good. The kids really enjoyed the food too, whilst only two choices on the kids menu, they loved both choices. Great service and would recommend to others. If we are... More

With such a massive choice in the area for restaurants we stumbled upon la winch whilst walking along the harbour wall . The environment and atmosphere was good and the staff were great with our two young girls , which always helps. The food was first class! All the mains were excellent and the portions on the kids meals were... More

We always visit this restaurant when we visit Ile de Noirmoutier. The menu of the day has good choices and the food is always beautifully presented and delicious. The place was buzzing with a fantastic atmosphere on the Thursday lunchtime we visited. The staff are always very attentive and polite. Great place, great food and a must.

On a hot day we sat on the covered patio and enjoyed the beautiful view towards the harbour. The staff is very nice and hat enough patience to wait until my children ordered their meals in french language. The Moules a la creme au curry were absolutely excellent and so was the service. The chocalate cake for dinner is delicious... More

We ate here once, the food was ok, nothing special but reasonable. The service however was very poor, indifferent and inattentive waiters. We went for the set menu but weren't allowed to wait to order desserts but had to order everything at the same time. Shame. Ile flottante was very nice indeed.

Food was good but variable, with a wide range of home made plates. Unfortunately the service was terrible. The restaurant was not overly busy but the service was slow and rude, with irritable responses when requesting water, coffee or condiments. Maybe better on another day.
