To all of you who are planning to visit Nantes, make sure you check out Plan B Restaurant: delicious food, great ambiance, and amazing staff. I also find the restaurant's name to be a conversation starter- ice breaker tip. Plan B has the right space whether you are out on a date, one-on-one meeting, or on a group function. A friend of mine suggested we met there for lunch and I can't wait for my next trip to Nantes so that I can go back. The owner, Gildas, brings years and years of experience to the table. Those years of experience, coupled with his charm and positive attitude make Plan B the number one food and drink destination in Nantes, France.

Plan B should really be Plan A!

My husband and I went there on a Friday night b/c we liked the name. We have few places we frequent near where we live and b/c we never make reservations, we always have a Plan A and Plan B so the name grabbed us.

We went one night to find it closed b/c of a private function. I went few days later by myself for lunch and boy, what a treat! While my husband worked (poor guy), I sat there enjoying the best lunch I have ever had. Of course like most places in Nantes, you have a starter, entree and dessert. Every course was fantastic but my entree, a duck dish was sublime and with a nice glass of red, even better. I mean we rarely eat such a rich lunch at home so I felt very decadent.

So I wanted to take my husband there that night, Wednesday or the next, Thursday, as we had only 2 nights left in Nantes. Unfortunately, they're open only for lunch on weekdays and for dinner Thursday thru Saturday. So as bad luck would have it, we couldn't eat there on Wednesday due to them being closed and couldn't on Thursday b/c they were once again closed to a private function! The guy working there spoke perfect English and recommended La Raffinerie. What a great and selfless recommendation! I highly recommend both La Raffinerie and Plan B.

These two are the absolute best! Definitely make a reservation, check their hours and if you can't make it for dinner, go do lunch!

We were actually heading to restaurant L'un.i across the road last Thursday but we were disappointed finding it being closed. So one of my colleagues said, let's go for "Plan B" opposite the street and we did not regret it for a second! A very friendly owner showed us to our table and was very helpful. They are only serving 5 starters, main courses and desserts which is telling you a lot about the quality of the food. The starter, main course and dessert were fantastic, from excellent quality and as mentioned before - great service. Undoubtedly worth a 10 – 15 minute walk from the city center as you will definitely not be disappointed. I will return - for sure! Tip: if you love red wine, go for “Les Darons” by Jeff Carrel.

Our group stumbled into this place, a bit off the main roads because we were looking for wine tours in France.
Silly us, maybe a wine shop could help? Turns out this was a little gem of a place, serving lunch and then open for drinks most evenings.
The owner, a young man named Gildas, not only took time to answer questions, but shared his knowledge of the local town, where to eat, what to see, and about the history and culture of Nantes.
We then came back twice for lunch. Both time excellent. Always fresh, well prepared: local chicken, beef, vegetables grown in their yards or gathered at local markets. Not extensive, but what was on the menu was lovely.

The wine list was also impressive...or maybe a better word would be fun?
Because Gildas made it fun to taste and just enjoy the local wines. He was also gracious enough to share other restaurants we tried, and they too were wonderful.

My only regret is that we live in the US, and can not visit regularly.

There are times when a place for whatever reason just touches you, because someone went beyond to welcome you and share with you.

Plan B will be one of the great memories of Nantes, so thank you!

Stop by and say hi.
