4.8 (439) $$$$ $$$$ French, Creative, Seafood, Fine Dining


Summary: Imaginative island cuisine with a focus on seafood.

La Marine, nestled on Noirmoutier Island, offers an exceptional dining experience where the sea's bounty and the local vegetable garden's freshest produce are transformed into culinary masterpieces. With a strong emphasis on seafood, the menu at La Marine reflects the seasons and the Atlantic's rich resources. The creativity of the kitchen shines through in dishes like smoked mackerel on its skeleton and a revelatory saumurée asparagus with confit mullet. The desserts continue the narrative of lightness and sweetness, with offerings such as chocolate mousse meringue and sea lettuce sorbet. The ambiance of the restaurant is enhanced by its natural materials and soft color palette, while the attentive service and a well-curated wine selection complete the dining experience. La Marine also extends its gastronomic touch to the local community with Le Petit Couillon, a grocery shop showcasing products from artisan and farmer partners.
