A Nice Relaxed Dinner

As part of our usual stop off driving from the UK to Italy we always stay in Nancy and we have consistently failed to get a table at this lovely little restaurant. This time we struck lucky on a Tuesday night and managed to get a table without booking. There is a choice of fixed menu - 3 course... read more

This restaurant is not in the main stream but boy have they got a great chef who obviously takes pride in all that leaves the kitchen. Cannot be faulted!

Small restaurant in the heart of the old town. Fois gras excellent but Jarret de cochon which I expected to be pork knee turned out to be bacon on the bone if that makes sense. Husband had gambas followed by veal with delicious mashed potatoes mixed with olives. A good experience. About 100e uros for two including a $40 euro... More

I went last week-end with my family to this small (capacity of around 30 ppl) restaurant and we have been amazed by the boldness of the menu, especially the desserts which are for me the main interest of this place! We had a really pleasant dinner (even if the atmosphere has nothing special) and the service was quite good (finally... More

Whilst not memorably, a very good meal with excellent wine at a reasonable price, with top draw and friendly service.

Nice and cosy restaurant with a very nice ambiance, good and tasteful food, good wine and a very friendly service. Presentation of the food is very nice, from starter till dessert. The (a la carte) menu and the wine list offer a wide selection, and the prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere in La Primatiale is very relaxed.

I had dinner at La Primatiale with a friend few weeks ago. It was monday and there were not many options for having a nice dinner. We were quite lucky to find this restaurant open. Besides the food that was quite good what we found extraordinary was the service. When choosing our wine we choose something that he refused to... More

By far my favourite dining experience in Nancy. Very friendly service, even tried to translate things for us. Very relaxed, the atmosphere was casual, but the food presentation and quality was simply superb. French food at its best AND service with a smile!!!

Than I had the Tuna with vegatables that was great! And my husband had the beef tournedous with morille and fantastic sauce. Dessert for me was called opera, it was like... More

If you can get in, definitely do so, and savor each bite! Our party of six was unanimous in its affection for this wonderful restaurant. Very hip yet very comfortable, too.
