The 10 municipalities of the canton of Ré are home to several restaurants, bistros and bars, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, from the rustic to the most refined. All these establishments are equally charming, and it is not easy to establish an objective classification. However, here are some interesting places where you can go while you are on the island.
Firstly, restaurants, gourmets and gourmands can satisfy their taste buds at l'Ecaillier in the commune of La Flotte, la Coccinelle in Saint-Martin-de-Ré or in the Viviers en Ré in Rivedoux -Beach. Other restaurants are worth a visit such as La Cabard du Féneau in La Couarde-sur-mer, Gouter Breton in Ars-en-Ré, Chai nous as Chai vous in La Flotte and much more.
The bars and wine cellars are the ideal places to taste the local products that are the pride of the island. It is especially good to frequent them after long days spent at the beach or taking a walk in the interior of the island. In rainy weather, these places are particularly welcoming and allow to spend a good time while awaiting the return of the sun. This is the case of the Cervana and the Cubana Café of Saint-Martin-de-Ré, the "20" of Ars-en-Ré or the Part of the Angels of La Couarde-sur-mer.
On weekends, two nightclubs are open to night owls in a lively and festive atmosphere. La Pergola in La Couarde, a real institution 80 years old, can accommodate 600 people. The Bastion, in Saint-Martin-de-Ré, is near the port, on a splendid site surrounded by the ramparts of Vauban.
On the entertainment side in these nightclubs, everything has been designed to satisfy all the clientele. Thus, in the early evening, the 40 years and more, who appreciate the rock and the music of the 80s are filled. Later in the night, the DJs program funk, electro house and not forgetting the hits of the moment.
