Very Fancy Restaurant

Anyhow the interior is really unique it is a pottpory furnitures from the 70's and even later. The walls are full of pictures, commercials, toys and other trash.

Visited this restaurant in October with a few colleagues. We are not from France but we have been in France several times. All of us had different courses from the menu and I believe no one was disappointed. In fact we were all really happy that we stumbled upon this little restaurant. The service was really good and the language... More

We only had a short time in Nantes, and one of our boxes to tick whilst there, was to find some excellent Moules Frites. And indeed we did here.....Moules Frites a la Creme, absolutely delicious!!! 16 Euros was a little pricey, but they were very good. Busy restaurant, but they were happy and quick to put together a table together... More

place looks like, but certainly not like this, this is a trendy bistro made up by fleamarket furniture with a changing menu. We've been there twice once with kids, recommendable as there is a lot to discover and once with friends who enjoyed it very much. So for short, nice place, good food and quircky service. A place to remember... More

We ate lunch here on a visit to Nantes on the recommendation of a local. We had a big salad plate which was absolutely delicious with so many different textures and flavours, it was a real pleasure to eat. We thought that 16 Euro's was a bit steep for a salad, but there was no faulting the quality or quantity.... More

We happened upon this restaurant by chance and were extremely happy with the excellent food and service. We hadn't booked and it looked busy so we were lucky to get a table outside which was great as there was entertainment a few feet away. Would definitely return if we are in Nantes again

After weeks of cold and rainy weather in Paris, we hopped the TGV for a day in Nantes as soon as the sun reappeared in western France. Yes - for one day - with an early train and late return you can have a full day in this interesting City. Besides the TGV is fun and with the three day... More
