what an exquisite and unique decor - a plunge back to childwood, among Playmobil toys and Martine books. Good food, big servings and a friendly service - though not very fast to take your order, they manage to prepare in no time! Air conditioning missing in the interior - luckily we stayed closed to the window, opened!

What a strange and usual place. The wine was really wonderful and the duck cooked to perfection per a taste of my dates dish. My steak was a bit dry since they ran out of the sauce I ordered but over all the place felt family owned and operated. It was very crowded and our order took a while but... More

As previously mentioned it is a quirky little restaurant which is quite dark & dismal (in my opinion) inside but it seems popular!! The waitress had very little English but was welcoming but unfortunately they had no English menu (you'd think in this day and age they would.. not everybody is fluent!). Based on my knowledge we chose one salmon... More

We wanted something cute, traditional and not a chain for our last night together. Found Chez Maman. Rather odd little place with an eclectic mix of decor from chandeliers and other lights all over the place, Playmobile figures, dead animals, old fridges and weird little trinkets. The staff speak a little English and are friendly and helpful. The menus take... More

We had delicious beef tartare and salmon tartare here. Good service and a good spot to people watch! Also, great decor inside!

The most incredible thing of this restaurant is the decoration. There are lots of things, but what I liked the most is the incredible amount of big playmobils set everywhere. The quality of the food was good but the price is too expensive regarding what you get.

This Is the most surprising restaurant in Nantes! We had the nicest meal (Moules and chicken curry, very tasty , nicest Moules in Nantes!) but the decor has to be seen, quirky and unique , you are visually entertained while waiting for your food, the wardrobe is actually the entrance to the restroom! Great food , great service, nice prices,... More

Very busy, seating promptly, courteous waiter with some English, helpful with wine and menu selections. Food came quickly, and was good but not spectacular. Decent value for this experience.

Set in a narrow and cobbled street, hilariously crowded an kitch decorations. We were there on a busy sunday evening, service can take time, understandably. Servitrice was lovely, menus made from old books. Food was great and moderately priced. Highly recommended.
