There are so many restaurants right on the harbour front all with a very similar menus & slightly overpriced. Used it for a quick meal & chose off the set menu for value. Portions are smaller than for same item off the main menu but that was OK as adequate for what we wanted. Service good & quick.If you can... More

Stuart, Thank you for giving your point of view. It is true that portions must be different if you're eating à la carte or in a set menu, obviously. Hoping we'll see you again. Culinary, Le Skipper More

We arrived for our dinner at the restaurant which sits right on the harbour at just after seven. The nights are chilly now, but there were still hardier souls seated at outside tables which had fleece throws in place for guests! It was a lovely touch, but we opted for the interior and were comfortable by a window overlooking the... More

Before we had even ordered drinks, our dog got served a huge bowl of water. Big choice of 3-course menus, each with the fresh catches of the day. The portions were more than decent, from the first course up to the café gourmand. Service was friendly and fast, perhaps a bit too fast for us, but they were obviously used... More

Strolling along the quayside (compulsory) in St Martin de Re , my wife and I felt that a platter of the delicious looking langoustines would be just the ticket. We were not disappointed, large langoustines with lovely aoili and fresh French bread washed down with local rose wine... perfect. Watching the world go by does not get much better than... More

The nice village and harbour on Ile-de-Ré is quite popular and the large terrace is usually very crowded. We managed to get a table for two under an umbrella, as this was a very sunny day. Oysters and shrimp were fresh and tasty followed by a well prepared ‘tartare de boeuf’’. Service was friendly and efficient. This was the second... More

We always are drawn to Le Skipper when we visit the Ile de Re with family and friends who stay with us. None have failed to be enchanted by the setting at the quayside, as well as the ambience of other revellers promenading by. There is always a good choice for all tastes, and whilst quite expensive it is a... More
