Dinner for three. We all took seafood and found the fish to be fresh and delicate. Presentation is ok, but nothing to get excited about. Deserts are quite enjoyable, the best being the ananas, just ahead of the chocolate fondant. Our wine choice was not available but the waiter's recommendation was quite acceptable.

Great ambience in lovely surroundings. A really good selection of set menus and everything we ate we loved. The service was attentive and friendly, despite the restaurant being full. Would recommend booking in advance if going at the weekend as we couldn’t get in on our first evening but booked a table for our second evening and were really glad... More

I've written lots of these reviews and I tend to be reasonably generous because running a professional kitchen isn't an easy job but I can be as tough as I like with this review because it was faultless. A range of well priced set menus plus for next to nothing you can have anything else off the menu. Good selection... More

The restaurant appears to be situated in a crypt which gives it a great ambiance. Stones walls and dim lighting gives is a romantic edge. The food aims to be at the higher end of the quality spectrum which it delivers comfortably. The prawns and chorizo in cream sauce really good, and the chocolate tart and salted caramel sauce didn't... More

I had a pleasant and relaxed evening here whilst working in Nantes. The atmosphere is nice and I enjoyed the decor as part of that. The fixed price meal was very good value, even for the more expensive option. The food is good but will not rank as high as some places I have visited in other parts of France,... More

Lovely atmosphere and very French. Excellent value fixed price menu but I have to say the steak was tough! Nice night, but go for the fish.

Had good lunch over the Christmas 2015 period in this little restaurant tucked in the medieval quarter (Le Bouffay). You can't see through the front window/door so we feared we might be the only ones but discovered that the room at the back was packed with a crowd that was a mix of French families and couples. Good homemade foie... More
