Amazing food. Wine paring. You get a selection of wines to try and pick the one you like where else would you get that. Food was unusual combinations but worked really well. Three courses of fois gras can't be bad. Very reasonable. And the lady serving is a breath of fresh air. So knowledgable.

After a short walk from the city centre into what seems like the student quarter, you get a warm welcome as you walk in to Cocotte. The menu is limited and at this time of the year it was laden with foie gras dishes. The chicken was 'off' so we were down to a menu of 4 items for each... More

I visited this restaurant with my wife for lunch. Both of us ordered three course menu of 36EUR. I loved Tajin with duck & foie gras the best, and my wife's pigeon with foie gras was also good. The lady staff could not speak English. The funny thing was that she sometimes took other guests in front of me and... More

Would never have found this place were it not for Tripadvisor, nor would I have ventured in off the street had I not heard about it. Don't be fooled by the modest appearance at first. The menu and service will soon blow you away. The waitress is an absolute star. So much passion and love for food and drink. Full... More

After reading good reviews, we ventured out on foot to find this little restaurant and it was well worth the hike. We didn't realise that the restaurant serves only organic poultry dishes (although the name should have been a bit of a clue!) and so our first impression was that there wasn't a wide variety of food on offer. Once... More

On a business trip, one night in Nantes we stumbled in this tiny hyper refined restaurant almost by chance, par hazard! Surprise! A small gem not only for the hyper refined dished based, but for the warmth and wealth of knowledge of the owner about wines and how wines match with each different dish. A true experience and most of... More

Walked up on Bastille day nothing open in Nantes except this little gem. Brilliant food and a lovely hostess. Best food on our trip in France so far. It will take some beating
