Oyster tasting destination

In the Boucholeurs neighborhood in Yves, The Cabin Atmosphere welcomes lovers of seafood and simplicity. Facing the bay of Yves, Fouras and the island of Aix, you can taste oysters, prawns, shellfish and fried mussels accompanied by white wine. The hut is open daily for lunch or dinner and from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. for retail, to be found at 8, rue de l’Océan.


On one side, you can enjoy the sea view and on the other the oyster farms of L’Ambiance Cabane.

A little further, in Aytré, customers of The Gigas can also taste oysters, prawns and the classic mussels and fries on the terrace of this oyster hut, with their feet in the water. A friendly atmosphere, fresh produce and very reasonable prices have won over many locals who are now used to the address. For the more cautious, it is therefore recommended to book in advance, knowing that the hut is only open in the evening on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 7 p.m.

Seafood a la bonne franquette

On the other hand, to the north of La Rochelle, the Durivaud brothers are mussel farmers and perpetuate the family tradition of boucholeur. They created The Brothers Mussels, mussel shacks that allow consumers to come and buy their mussels: from the spat to the plate. It is therefore possible to take away or eat there, from 10 am; the service ends at 1:30 p.m. For dinner, you can go there from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. For the sea view, we recommend the cabin in Marsilly (rue des Grottes).

The Moules Brothers have two points of sale: in Marsilly and Chef-de-Baie where it is also possible to eat on site.

Between seafood and fast food, we find The Hake at Minimes (avenue du Lazaret), specializing in fish and chips. Presented in paper with lemon and sauces of your choice, as British tradition dictates, it is possible to take it away and taste it while admiring the sea from the Minimes beach. Closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Le Merluchon is open from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. And for the greediest, nothing prevents you from having an ice cream at Uncle Maboule for dessert.

Relaxed atmosphere by the beach

L’Anse de Pampin recently gave birth to the Little Pampin. The L’Houmeau guinguette seized the opportunity when the Corniche campsite in Angoulins-sur-Mer offered to invest part of their space. You can find local cuisine or charcuterie and cheese directly from the Basque Country. With their festive events coupled with the family space of the campsite, the founders hope to also attract families.

In Angoulins-sur-Mer, you have to cross the Corniche campsite to discover the guinguette: Le Petit Pampin.
