We visited Le Bouchon last week when on a city trip in Nantes. We had a marvelous evening with our family in a characteristically French setting. We enjoyed the food, wine and the attentive staff, that made this dining experience complete. No complaints at all!

The food was pleasant and reasonably priced. Not amazing but certainly not the best Nantes has to offer.

Really enjoyed our meal out here. The food is creative and the staff were very pleasant. They were very courteous when we said it was our anniversary and couldn't have done more for us :)

We enjoyed our meal at Le Bouchon. We both had the 34 Euro menu, which consisted of a sensational beef tataki with wasabi cream, a flavoursome but a little tough calf's rump main and went our separate ways with dessert: pistachio creme brulee and pavlova with rasberries. Together with a nice 2014 Chinon Cab Franc the meal represented excellent value,... More

We had dinner at Le Bouchon and were lucky enough to get a table in their pretty courtyard. We booked by email which was very efficient - thank you Pascale. Booking is essential if you want to sit outside. We saw some people arrive who, presumably, hadn't booked and they had to eat inside. A perfectly OK place, but nowhere... More

We made a reservation at Le Bouchon by email before leaving the US for France. We entertained 3 French couples, parents of exchange students we have hosted over the last few years. The hotel was very accommodating and provided English menus to my husband and myself. We had a beautiful table under an awning in the courtyard/garden. The service was... More

We ate inside, they left empty tables between each couple that is very thoughtful as typically in France you get to sit very close to other. Nice food, very good service. I had some special orders and they were handled without any problems! For a typical restaurant with "normal" 3-course menu, the dishes were way better than to what I... More

What a place! I booked a table for 7:45 on a Wednesday evening expecting a lot after reading reviews right here. It was local to my hotel so thought it would be worth it. I arrived and it was empty...not for long as the place was buzzing by 8:15. It was a beautiful evening so was welcomed to their 'garden',... More

I arrived in Nantes late afternoon and guided from tripadvisor for a good dinner after a hard day. I stepped into Le Bouchon at 9.00 pm and agreed (mistaken) for a reservation at 10.00. After one hour walking in Nantes and being tempted on disregarding the reservation in front of other good-lookalike restaurant in downtown, I came back at Le... More

I had the 14 euro 3 course lunch with the offered 1.50 euro glass of wine. It was Rillette of Thun, Lieu (a local fish) lightly curried in a pancake and a soupe de fraises. It was all delicious. I strongly recommend it.
