Description: The unique menu remained unchanged since the beginning. This formula is a decked slice of sirloin of 170 grams accompanied by french fries and its famous sauce. His son Henry, opened a restaurant in Toulouse in 1962, in Bordeaux in 1966, in Nantes in 1980, in Montpellier in 1990, and finally, in Lyon in 1999. These restaurants are characterized by scots and black mural, a lemon yellow topping and hostesses dressed with yellow apron and black blouse. The exterior is beautified by yellow and black blinds vertical stripes for the best effect.

We waited in line for this much touted steak frites restaurant. They only have one item on the menu and they do it well- steak frites! Once seated, we were completely ignored by the servers. Tables to our right were waited on and tables to our left who were seated well after us were waited on. When we asked the... More

Constant quality for a standard single menu of beef and frites. Good selection of a limited number of Bordeaux wines. A few desserts available

This is such a simple evening. Your only choice is how you want you steak cooked. Loved the salad and the bread to start. Steak and the garlic sauce was fantastic. The house red wine was a perfect selection. My only suggestion was to try and make the chips less greasy. Other than that it was wonderful.

Excellent steak in a superb sauce with a bottomless supply of lovely fries. This in the only choice and but it's been this way since 1959. The starter is salad with walnuts and dressing. I recommend profiteroles to share as a sweet much too much for one. The staff are good fun and help to make this a dining delight.

The place is packed in the evenings. Try to be there before 19:30, otherwise you might be seated in tight places. The lady manager is welcoming and the environment is cozy, although tight.

Great place for lunch or dinner in the centre of Nantes. One dish on the menu; steak served in an amazing buttery mustard sauce which is delicious. Your steak is served sliced on to a silver platter left on a warming candle stand on your table. Fries served and a waitress circulates the tables carrying a huge platter of more... More

Wow! What a concept! I'm a big fan of "La cigale" and huge fan of "my resto", both very different style and not cheap but hands down this restaurant can give them a run for the money in its very own way! I was not expecting much as I got there, broken window by the entrance door, none impressive looking... More

As most reviews have said, excellent food, superb format, fillet steak n fries, wallowing in butter n djon mustard. We had a bottle of champagne to wash it all down, no room for sweet, and thanks to Antoinette for the excellent service and english language.

The format is simple...how do you like your steak? There is no wine list and desserts are limited....put it all together and you get a fantastic meal...one... More

Read a couple of reviews on here & asked the barmaid at Giggs Irish bar who highly recommended this place. Had a 15 min queue outside of the restaurant, however was definitely worth it. No menu, you are just asked how you would like your steak (mine was rare) & it comes with unlimited chips, both were perfect. As recommended... More
