The restaurant is located at the edge of a slightly dodgy part of town and seems to be in a roofed-over courtyard. The setting is pleasant and the staff helpful. There are a number of menus available, as well as the carte, and we went for the discovery menu that was 4 courses (more really) of the chef’s choice. I’m... More

Delicious food, attentive service, good wine. Slightly pricey, but worth it. We asked the staff to pick wines for pairing with the food, they did very well.

Only in Nantes for a few days, and tried to book for Friday. Full. Saturday? Also full but would we like to come on Sunday? Unheard of to find somewhere special open on Sunday. It is located in a nondescript part of town, and we walked through a rather seedy area to get there. The restaurant was stylish and welcoming.... More

Very happy with our experience. Unusual for a quality restaurant, they had a kids menu. Very fun 'amuse bouche' - especially on the surprise menu. Fun trying to guess the good wines. Great service - very attentive waiters. Highly recommended!

We saw the reviews for this restaurant and made a booking. We went for the surprise menu, 4 courses and 2 wines, and it far exceeded our expectations. It is a meal we will remember for a long time. We loved the mixture of unusual ingredients which had been used and the flavours extracted to give us so many treats.... More

Excellent food served by charming knowledgable staff,the menue is limited but the dishes are put together with real care and a flair for inovative sauces,although a small city center restaurant they boast a roof top herb garden.An indication of the effort the chef puts in to producing the best.Wine list particularly good on white wine and reasonably priced.

This restaurant thoroughly deserves its high TripAdvisor rating. It is situated in a fairly nondescript road, maybe 15 minutes away from the City centre. There is a sofa area for your aperitif and an elegant, unfussy, dining area. Having made a reservation well in advance for our dinner we were given an excellent table. Menu choices are slightly limited but... More

We dined at this restaurant based on the recommendation of a French friend and the good reviews in Trip Advisor. We could not have been more disappointed to have such a poor dining experience on our last night in Nantes. There were six of us and we mostly ordered the prix fixe menu. Two of us had the pork medallions... More

I mean the food is amazing seriously, We took the "decouvert menu", where you don't know what you gonna eat and it's really exciting, you got wine according to your meal, but maybe too small amount of wine ;-) A glass for two courses isn't enough, so you can buy yourself another one -glass or bottle-, but then price keep...

Dining here is a real experience. First of all, you are invited to enjoy an apertif on the sofa, before you head to your table, which was a really pleasant way to start the evening. I recommend the surprise menu. We had five courses, paired with wines, and everything was delicious. The foie gras and the spicy calamari were the... More
