For the preparation of our pasta, we use: real flour from a miller who does not sleep, real eggs from hens which frolic in the open air, a little sugar (but not too much), real PDO butter and much sure of the delicate fleur de sel from our beautiful island of Noirmoutier.

The P'tit Noirmout
Located just behind the port, next to the town hall, the storefront of the P'tit Noirmout opens on sunny days to take advantage of the light and the mild Noirmoutrin climate. The room is warm and tastefully furnished: exposed stone, parquet, edged burgundy painted beams with a white wooden ceiling, and nicely set tables. The setting has charm.
The cuisine is not lacking either and revolves around a menu that gives pride of place to fish and seafood, offered in platters.
