Zero Waste Island Food

Saint-Pierre-d’Oléron is a small town and a commune in the middle of l’île d’Oléron off the coast of France in the Bay of Bisacy. Sébastien and Sarah opened their restaurant ”l’île aux Papilles” in 2016 just off the pedestrian street in Saint-Pierre. Their only local, seasonal and 100% bio products to produce amazingly good food.

They have their own 10 waste commandments which is much appreciated by ESIN’s friends at the Zero Waste France organisation, see

May we add that the chicken ravioli and the cold courgette soup with garlic are exquisite?

And yes, for a true island-lover we have regretfully to report that, since 1966, there is a bridge to the 174 km2 sized island.
