Ate here recently at lunchtime and was seriously impressed and surprised about the level of quality I found here - food and service alike.
The menu offer two options one mid-range one slightly dearer. there are 4 started and 4 mains to chose from. I ate a marrow bone accompanied by a lovely small lentil salad that complimented the greasy texture of the bone-marrow ideally. This was followed by a medley of veal's sweetbreads and kidneys with an amazing sweet succulent sauce I still dream of. The wine menu is not excessive but contains of very good choices.
Value for money: excellent. Plus a very cosy setting and refreshingly pleasant service. We will be back! Merci Gilles.

We were recommended by a local to get a table here and we were not disappointed. We were provided detailed information on each choice that had been well conceived and were delicious. The food was very fresh and and cooked just right. We sat outside on the small terrace, but the inside has is great too with a little courtyard in the restaurant.
Go to this restaurant if you want tasty well priced food in a laid back atmosphere. Thank you to all the staff who were delightful.

Because other higher rated Nantes restaurants were closed or full a very helpful local took us to this one. What a treat. Full of locals who obviously recognised the quality of the meals on offer and the excellent value for money. Four of us had the basic 3 course set meal with two carafes of wine which came to £25 a head. The food was just superb. Would have kept this a secret but unlikely to return to Nantes in the near future, so I'm happy to share the experience and give the establishment a boost. Not sure the locals will thank me though.

Really good food, really good service, dessert portions are huge in comparison to the starers and mains. A bit out of the city but worth it, absolutely packed on a miserable Wednesday night in October, which has to be a good sign. Really well priced, not open on Sundays or Mondays
