We enjoyed a really good meal. We were recommended by our hotel to eat there. Friday night was full so we booked for Saturday night and had the booth in the front window which was very comfortable. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Delicious starters: eggs cocotte with asparagus soup and bacon pieces, foie gras, st. Marcelin melted cheese wrapped in bacon.... More

We were looking for a place to have dinner in Nantes and found this small restaurant and from the delicious wines to the wonderful food and staff, it certainly made our trip here very memorable. The menu itself is quirky and that sets it apart from other restaurants on the strip. Two thumbs up! Would definitely return

Absolutely delicious French food, served by lovely waiters, reasonable prices! We turned up at 9.15pm and asked in halting french if they had a table. The manager was charming and replied in understandable french he could give us a table in half an hour. Perfect! We went for a drink and returned later. The waitress who served us asked whether...

We came with a group of friends and all took the "plat du jour" because that is usually good quality in most restaurants. I judged the fish and vegetables as OK, but nothing special, a small filet on zucchini with a tomato sauce, not particularly tasty; some of the others called it quite good, but i would be surprised if...

Fantastic Food, very reasonable prices. Great selection of meat and seafood - but the tasting plates of land/water were the real suprisie. Everything was delicious! If in Nantes this place should be on your list!

Had been walking round Nantes all morning and now we're looking for lunch. Found this place with good reviews. It looked empty on ground floor but we were taken upstairs which was full of locals. Had the platter called Les Pieds dans L'eau, which was a mix of different fish and seafood dishes with a salad. Really lovely. Washed down... More

Good location between Place Graslin and Place Royale, small establishment perhaps ~50 covers so be sure to book. On a Monday evening it was relatively empty at 7.30pm and full by 8.00pm. Staff very friendly, curious cartoon book menu a nice touch. I skipped the entree and had an excellent "La Grande Assiette des Pieds sur Terre" which, if I... More

The only time I went in this place we chose it for the loks - I love the kitchy, colourful decorations, with no two tables alike. And then we found out that the food was very good too! The dishes are only a few and seasonal, but well prepared with some original touches. I loved the chicken roll with honey... More

We chanced upon this restaurant while shopping in downtown Nantes. This restaurant was small but cozy. I ordered an entrée and a plat. The entrée was La cassolette de Saint-Jacques served in a mini cocotte. You couldn't really taste the Saint-Jacques as they were buried in a creamy sauce. For the plat, La Grand Assiette Les Pieds dans L'Eau was... More
