Chef Nicolas Durif is originally from Alsace, Germany. When he was little, he used to spend hours in the kitchen with his grandmother, tasting and preparing dishes. Inspired by her cooking, Nicolas started working at critically-acclaimed establishments, such as 4-star hotel Mercure Rochefort La Corderie Royale’s restaurant.

l'Hysope’s cuisine

Chef Nicolas Durif’s nouvelle cuisine is inspired by the area’s sea and soil. He only works with fresh and hand-picked seasonal produce, such as vegetables and herbs sourced from local market gardeners, and fish from La Rochelle's fish market or the local auction. At restaurant l’Hysope, you can choose between three ever-changing menus: the Tasting menu, the Voyage menu, and the Aparté menu. The dishes can only be discovered on-site. Expect options like duck foie gras, sweet and sour black radish and apricots, reduction of Pineau des Charentes with horseradish, red fruits condiment, and green pepper anchovy donut. Chef Nicolas’ generous menu is beautifully complemented by an eclectic yet well-assembled wine list.
