The atmosphere of this restaurant is superb. it offers sumptuous décor with a magnificent view of Gralin square, especially at night when the Opera is illuminated. However, the waiters will judge you if you do not wear a tie, and may speak to you and serve you differently. However,the service is quite fast. As for the food, there are other cheaper restaurants in Nantes that are far better. You will be paying more for the views and décor than for the food, but it is a landmark of Nantes that has to be visited.
If you are like me and you don´t have any ideas for Sunday night dinner, you should remember this place: Tabl'O Gourmand! It is an old restaurant with large wooden tables. Everything is great and it´s also perfect for breakfast or a snack. It´s open every day and is distinguished by the quality of its products and caring environment.
The prices of this restaurant of really decent. You get an appetizer, a main course, and a large dessert for 60 euros for two people. We left feeling very satisfied. But the concept of cooking meat yourself on a small grill and the fact that the chips got cold too fast (we ate on the terrace), would not let me enjoy the food as much as I wanted. Also, be careful with the wind: the barbecue ashes blow onto your plate! I recommend it, but its not a restaurant to go to all the time.
Don´t be fooled by thinking that this is a Chinese restaurant just like all the others...it isn´t at all. Le Song offers a nice selection of fine dishes prepared with finesse and a mix of sweet and salty in the garnish or in the spices. The menu is traditional but these original dishes are made even more desirable for your palate. The atmosphere is intimate and conducive to enjoying your meal. The quality and the price is reasonable and I am surely not the only one ve thinks so!
La Bodega is a tapas bar in Nantes. You can also dine and taste the ham specialties created by the boss ve will welcome you with his famous "Ola!". The tapas are good and a decent price. If the room is a little small it is possible to sit out on the terrace and try the famous "porrones ", mixed with alcohol to drink in glasses the size of jugs. I recommend it for spending a night among friends.
Being here is like being at Grandma's house! Everything is very simple: A single daily dish, always. On Tuesday, it's skewered fish with ginger, on Wednesday, chicken colombo, on Thursday, pot au feu, and so on, always adapting to the recipes of the seasons. Follow the chef's suggestions regarding drinks, bottle for bottle.
My brother and my sister went to dinner at this restaurant and were thrilled. They sat next to the piano for a tête-à-tête. It is clear that they will go back again; they loved the cuisine and ambiance of this place. However, you have to make reservation. In my opinion, the welcome they give us was very nice, and they offer additional services for special occasions like anniversaries. It is a great bar-restaurant for dates, or to go out with friends.
During a break in a typical neighborhood of Nantes, I was surprised to find a Lebanese restaurant! The decor was breathtaking, with stone walls, large red curtains that give the impression of going back in time. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food; I was afraid of being disappointed again by these types of restaurants, but I wasn't disappointed at all. I recommend that you go in groups, to be able to test all the Mezze!
In the heart of Nantes, near the Place Royale, there is a trendy bar called the Café Royal. At lunchtime it becomes a beer bar. The terraces are welcoming during the summer months, but they fill up quickly. The only problem is that the coffee is pretty expensive, and the environment too "posh" for my taste.
This is an Italian restaurant that stands out among the rest: the décor is modern (which is a great change from the traditional red and white checkered tablecloth), and the menu has a very rich variety of dishes, unlike the classic pizzas that we all know! I have not tried them all, but the dish I did try was delicious! The prices are also very affordable (especially compared to the quality of the dishes) and the service was very friendly. Therefore, it is definitely recommended!
Oh it is hard to stand before Maison Larnicol and not buy anything! It's on the ground floor of the famous Pommeray Passage, the store was recommended by an inhabitant of Nantes and there is no doubt that this person knows his city! Chocolates of all kinds populate and a showcase heralding the delights you'll find inside - fine chocolates (and somewhat expensive) that one selects like a "self-service". For chocolate lovers it's a good place, but for others too since they have typical cookies of Nantes and Brittany: "palet breton" a thick butter cookie and "kouignettes" a "mini" version of "kouign-love" . It is best not to go if you're dieting because these things are quite potent in calories - but also in taste! A good place to buy a snack that is somewhat typical, rich and downtown!
What I like most about this restaurant is its very unique decoration which is entirely made up of retro posters. It also has some old lamps, and a little model railway track. I love the menu, with a lot of different options; I recommend the foie gras. The dessert cake seemed like it might be boring, but it was actually delicious. I recommend it!
It's hard to believe that there is a restaurant like le Cocotte en Verre in the heart of Nantes! This restaurant invites you to eat in a green space and enjoy the tranquility on the island of Versailles. It offers a variety of food daily that changes with each season so that the menu is always in harmony with nature. You can also drink tea during the day to take advantage of the surrounding tranquility.
This cafe is in front of the Church of St. Nicholas in a small shopping center. Very old and traditional, this gallery is worth passing by for a coffee. I especially recommend this cafe for its great staff. On the menu there are salads, croques monsieur and other things with a pretty fair price.
This place is located in the heart of the city of Nantes. It has just opened, to great success! It is a modern and elegant bar which is unusual, without being pompous! The reception is very friendly and the service is very attentive. It could quickly become a successful bar.
François Fairand and Eric welcome you kindly to this restaurant. The Courtine offers all fresh produce straight from the market. With a beautiful terrace, it is an excellent place to eat . The restaurant is open Tuesday to Sunday, however, it only serves lunch. It is one of the best places in Nantes.
Castelanne is a very famous traditional store where you can find unique and delicious sweets from Nantes. There are: Berlingots Nantais (which are coloured caramels), salted butter cookies, toffee and chocolate liqueur ... Breton salt is present both salty and sweet foods... In fact, one of its characteristic elements of its desserts is the "fleur de sel" caramel, a type of salty toffee, which, although at first is surprising, the mix of sweet and salty is delicious. The most exquisite thing are its pralines, rolled in "fleur de sel"; all you need to do is put them in your mouth and they fall apart. Candy nothing else introduce they start to melt. Absolutely incredible.
