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.

Had a wonderful lunch in this beautiful restaurant. The salmon mousse, beet gazpacho, and delicate fish in a coconut curry sauce were delicious. For exceptional food, the prices are extremely reasonable. The interior of this restaurant is beautifully done, although on a nice day the garden courtyard would be fabulous. The family who own and operate the restaurant are extremely... More

A group of 11 sat outside for dinner. We chose from one of 2 set menus off the board which were excellent. The courtyard outside is quaint and beautiful, a delight. Most impressive of all was the quality of the staff and their leadership. Would love to go again.

My husband booked here for my birthday meal we had hoped to sit in the garden area but it was raining. The food was beautiful, quick and in control service and the serving staff very polite and helpful, a great choice for my birthday meal. The menu selection at €30 or €34 for 3 causes was very reasonable and good... More

Le Bouchon is a small restaurant and was very busy the night we were there. The staff tried their best but clearly the crowd was above their head. The menus were good, and everyone in our table was happy with their choices. They allow you to choose outside the menu offerings as well which made choice easier. It is a... More
