Was there with friends for dinner. Waiting line is outside and can long since the restaurant does not take reservation. Only choices are the cooking style for the meat, wine or not ( only one type of Bordeaux wine ) and type of desert. Very good meat with sauce and all you can eat french fries. Service is quick and...

A big waiting line convinced to try this restaurant. The first surprise I got is that they serve only one dish, meat in their own special sauce with french fries. You have the choice of your steak doneness and how much fries you want to eat (you can get as much as you want) and that's it for the food.... More

Having heard so much about l'Entrecote, we arrived early and were first in when the doors opened at 19.15. The service was excellent - there is no choice other than how you want your steak cooked. Pleasant salad with walnuts to start with, then the main event. Steak, sliced very thinly, cooked perfectly to order, with hot, thin chips The... More

One of the best places I have eaten in. Simple ordering, one meal only, plain salad starter, then a sirloin steak in a superb secret sauce and a huge amount of fries, with a smashing bottle of red wine. Plain,simple but out of this world. Expect to cue outside afternoon and evening.

We found the food to be superb...we contemplated the concept of a single dish restaurant in the UK and... More

The place to go if you like steak. The staff are friendly and helpful. The red wine is good, all you can eat chips, and steak cooked to perfection...what's not to like. A must if your staying in Nantes.

This restaurant is part of a small chain, where just one main course dish is served: sirloin steak with the secret recipe bordelaise sauce, chips and salad. They relent a bit for desert, offering you a choice of puddings, and there is a short range of wines and beers to go with your meal. It sounds crazy, but the queues... More

Having witnessed the queues outside this restaurant from my hotel bedroom, I decided to dine there tonight. The restaurant has had the same formula since the late 1970s : salad as soon as you sit down, then steak cooked to your liking and thin chips. Excellent and fast service with a smile and considering how busy they are, it is... More

The unique menu remained unchanged since the beginning. This formula is a decked slice of sirloin of 170 grams accompanied by french fries and its famous sauce. His son Henry, opened a restaurant in Toulouse in 1962, in Bordeaux in 1966, in Nantes in 1980, in Montpellier in 1990, and finally, in Lyon in 1999.

These restaurants are characterized by scots and black mural, a lemon yellow topping and hostesses dressed with yellow apron and black blouse. The exterior is beautified by yellow and black blinds vertical stripes for the best effect.
