Restaurant LA MARINE ** – Noirmoutier (France)

One step further and you’ll dive into the sea. Located at the far end of the wild and beautiful island of Noirmoutier, on the west coast of Vendée, between Bordeaux and Nantes, restaurant La Marine is facing the harbour and sea. There is the place where operates Alexandre Couillon, a talented and dynamic chef proudly representing the new french gastronomical landscape. Together with his wife Céline and a totally dedicated team, Alexandre is continuously focusing on making sure you’ll enjoy a beautiful time in their small and cosy restaurant, taking you by the hand for an amazing journey, cooking straight, modern and iodized food, based on his island terroir and what mother nature is offering around – with of course a fantastic quality of sea foods and fishes (the fish auction market is 50 meters far from the restaurant, we let you imagine the freshness of the daily catch you’ll find in your plate a few hours later). Sincerity and humility are some of the key words defining Alexandre, coupled with pleasure and talent, there is no doubt for us this chef is amongst the future « grand » in France, a chef we are extremely honoured to count amongst our team.
