Really lovely dinner in this charming restaurant. We did not know what to expect and have been really nicely surprised by the food quality, the decor and ambiance and the service. We took the set menu: well balanced preparations, great taste and good value too. We had desert outside in the garden... read more

Four of us booked for dinner. We were pointed to a table set for 5 in the courtyard and noticed an ashtray on the table. When we said we wanted non smoking, the waitress said we did not need to smoke and very few people smoked. We ordered a la carte. One of the starters was lost, then after finishing... More

First night in Nantes and already been overwhelmed by the quality of the food this evening. The service was very friendly. We had a table on the inside but the terrace was already totaly reserved so be on time for the best places. Recommendable restaurant!

We had dinner here at the suggestion of the owner of our B&B. We had a lovely entree of mozarella in red pepper gaspacho, and then one of us had a steak (done perfectly) and the other vegetables wrapped in pastry. The wines suggested by our waiter were well suited to our meals. I would have liked to finish with... More

Located in the old centre in a lovely, ancient, timber-framed building, this restaurant is small and cozy with great ambiance and professional but friendly service. Every course was tasty and not overly fussy, like some French food. My starter of burratta with a pepper couli was so good I wanted to lick the dish. All 4 of us enjoyed everything... More

This restaurant is located on a cobblestone pedestrian only street in an old timber-framed building. The fixed menu was a single entre and choice of plat and dessert. If you want more choices there is always the al a carte menu. For lunch the entre was served en verre (in a tall glass). The bottom was a whipped goat cheese,... More

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
