An incomparable setting, seafood selected by Christopher Coutanceau and a terrace overlooking the ocean… This marine-themed bistro adjoining the Michelin 3-star establishment serves the best of the ocean in a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
The soul of a chef and a fisherman
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.
Seafood, fish and shellfish, carefully selected at the fish auction every morning, are the finest produce from local, artisanal, eco-responsible fishing, which respects the ocean's seasons. Carpaccio, wood-fired cuisine, whole fish and seafood platters invite to be shared on the wind-sheltered terrace or our inside space around long festive wooden tables.
Step into Christopher Coutanceau and Nicolas Brossard’s marine-themed residence, a former shipowner’s mansion – a member of Relais & Châteaux – located just a stone’s throw from La Concurrence Beach and the historic heart of La Rochelle. This oasis of calm with its 11 rooms and suites, nestling in a wooded courtyard featuring a heated pool, invites you to delight in an enchanting stay interspersed with gastronomic pleasures.
Ideally located, La Yole de Chris is overlooking the Concurrence beach, close to La Rochelle center city.
