Charming restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. It's small and cosy. The staff are friendly. The food was very good. I had a fois gras starter followed by an encrusted rack of lamb. Both very good. The wine was nice too - a pinot noir from the Loire. 3 course dinner for 3 people with 2 bottles of wine totaled €200... More

We had a reservation but the terrasse was full. Sad ,because it is really lovely. Nonetheless we had a great meal inside. Good recommendation from our hostess on their regional specialties and local wine. Don't hesitate it's all good at a reasonable price.

Perfect combination of friendly staff, lovely food and wine, and great ambience (particularly in the courtyard). The lunch special is very reasonable (17.50 for 3 courses with chocolate cake to die for) -- dinner is much more expensive. This restaurant was recommended to us by our friends in Nantes and now we know why -- it was so lovely we... More

We were at Le Bouchon last night after reading reviews on trip advisor. I was delighted by the friendly welcome and the advice to sit in the beautiful courtyard to enjoy the evening sun. The menu was well thought out with a variety of taste fusions. We went for a set menu, set at 33 euros for three courses which... More

Having read reviews of restaurants on your website we decided to dine at Le Bouchon because it seemed good value for a family of four and being a lovely hot day we wanted to dine al fresco and liked the idea of eating in their outdoor section. Food was lovely, small portions but perfectly executed and the garden area where... More

Booked ahead after reading TA reviews. Were going to sit inside but on a very nice evening we were offered a table outside. The courtyard is very pretty and well worth it if the weather is suitable (they have shades to slow cooling/provide shade). We were offered only a 29 or 33 euro menu and unfortunately the handwriting made it... More

Booked for dinner on recommendation of hotel and strength of TripAdvisor reviews. Tucked away down a side-alley, so don't think we would have come across it casually. Warm welcome and continued good service from young man and woman team, the man speaking good English. Small wooden tables, closely spaced. Complimentary bowl of pistachio nuts delivered with aperitifs. Two fixed-priced menus... More

Have always been highly satisfied here - whether with friends, business, or just the two of us. Our last outing lived up to our expectations and my favorites - the foie gras, iberico pork, and Colorado cheesecake made the entrée/plat/dessert combo a reminder why I keep coming back. Daily specials - which you can mix and match from a 25€... More
