We visited this restaurant that was recommended by a work colleague. Oysters were amazing to start. We then all opted for the prefix menu. It was great to have a few options under every category. I started out with a polenta with langoustines. This one was one of my favorite dishes all trip. I also tasted my colleagues foi gras... More

We ended up eating here twice is was that good! Both times we had the menu du jour - always a good choice in France - best seasonal dishes and always the best price. They have a very comprehensive menu and after reading and translating it we still went for the menu du jour. High quality food and wine with... More

I stumbled on this place whilst looking for dinner and have been back since. It is a very good example of a high quality local French cuisine. I had eels cooked with garlic and butter as a starter, it was delicious and something I had never tried before. Main as a bit more predictable; entrocote steak but as usual in... More

IIf there were a "quite good" rating, I would have used it. I had passed its side entrance in Rue Faure a couple of times and thought that it looked a bit expensive and pretentious. However, I was taken by the Menu du Marche displayed at the front, not least because it offered bulots as a starter. These were followed... More

Just a few minutes from the train station and the river, this restaurant was a great experience with a young and dynamic staff (all girls!) serving good food in such a short time. The menu in the evening is very reasonable and I could taste good and cheap local wines by the glass. A real nice place to recommend!

I found this restaurant on my first night in Nantes it was a night of the music festival nuits folles so the place was full and the menu limited. However the langoustines starter was great and the fish was also very good. I left very happy since this was the first restaurant I found near my hotel. Two days later... More

Pro: -The restaurant offers some fixed menu's which I did not try but looked good from a price/value perspective. - Very friendly and young staff - It's quite modern; although the way the staff is dressed is not really what I would call elegant or nice. - Ice cream/sorbet recommended! Contra: - No English menu which resulted in having ordered... More

We walked to the restaurant from our hotel after having checked out several choices in the more touristed section of Nantes. The carte was interesting, but in addition, there was a special prix fixe menu on the slate and also several fish dishes that were not on the printed carte. The restaurant is simple but stylish and does a good... More

Modern Restaurant/Brasssiere excellent service and attention all the food was locally sourced. We ate with clients on one day and the next we had dinner at the chefs table. Tuna cooked to perfection. Would go back time and time again
