Worst ever in every respect: bad quality of food (close to unbeatable), low level cooking (is warming up cooking?), bad service, ambience is a matter of taste, much to expensive. Wonder how they got their ranking.

Birth place of Jules Verne, great range of regional classics French staples. Friendly service and well prepared food with time and care taken in preparation. Be sure to book as it's very close to the centre and not the largest restaurant.

This restaurant is worth visiting for the decor alone. Wonderful art deco interior. We just dropped in for a coffee in the afternoon. The place was busy, but the service was prompt, pleasant and efficient. There was a good selection of cakes and biscuits and the espresso coffee was good.

Ordered a start (boiled egg in french cheese sauce) and main coarse (cod). Both were of good quality. Not all main dishes were delivered at same time to the group (8 people) which was a pitty. Friendly atmosphere and good service. Freindly pricing.

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here. The place was busy but the service was very slick and friendly. A nice selection of food on offer and I enjoyed excellent squid whilst Mme thoroughly enjoyed her cod. Nice experience.

After an hour or two, wandering about Nantes looking for a restaurant where we could understand the menu and it had something french that we both fancied, we came across La Nouveau Monde, close to the centre of the city. Good points: 1. Easy to find 2. Good selection of food 3. They have an English translation of the menu... More

Restaurant on average, good quality/price ratio. Set of cheeses is reccommended as they serve different qualities of French cheese, goat cheese included. Some other local food is also reccommended: like pork or goose. Service is very nice and always available. It is in general ok.

We don't like paying for bad food and so would rather pay a little more for something very good. What we received was sensational food at a very good price. I just wish we discovered this little gem sooner than our last night in France. Albeit a great way to end our France trip. Delicious food with great friendly service.

Staff were very friendly and restaurant seemed to be very popular. My husbands meal was ok but mine was cold and completely inedible. Expensive for what we got
