Le Café du Nord
19 quai du Gabut
17000 - La Rochelle
In 1862, the sailors from La Rochelle set sail for the Café du Nord. 150 years later, we would like you to discover the products of our region:
Oysters from the open sea and seaweed from the foreshore of the Île de Ré, salt marshes and maceron from the salt marsh, etc.
Located in a prominent position on the Old Port's dock in the Gabut district, the Café du Nord is a Rochelais institution. The restaurant is indeed one of the oldest places of conviviality of the city and remains today the only stone building of the famous "wooden city". A specificity that gives it a little more authenticity, a nod to its rich history.

With its terrace on the water and its view of the towers of La Rochelle, the Café du Nord is far from resting on its achievements. Since May 2021, the restaurant is getting a second youth thanks to a new ambitious team determined to offer local and seasonal cuisine in this idyllic setting.

On the menu, the choice is varied but limited, in order to keep an irreproachable quality and to avoid waste. The chef delights us with his original recipes: casseroles a la plancha, pluma of pig grilled with pineau, ... and the wines are carefully chosen to accompany your culinary discoveries.
