    L'Entrecôte: an old favorite, l'entrecôte

    by gwened Written May 9, 2013
    L'entrec��te
    1 more image

    This is a landmark spot, we used to come here often and ate at the same spot under Chez Clément, a chain very much set in Paris. The first time we came it was the branch in Nantes, then it change ownership and change name to the L'Entrécôte. Same friendly staff and more gears towards beef than before.
    The L'entrecôte also has branches in other parts of France; and you know they are good too.
    the deco is wonderful, and the ambiance trés sophisticated

    Favorite Dish: steaks , faux filets are great as well as the entrecôtes. wash it down with great red wine from the loire such as Chinon or Bourgueil.

    this is my favorite when in Paris, and it has branches in Nantes, we visited the Place Royale . Very nice friendly service, great italian home made ice cream and coffees. Wonderful.

    it has a nice view of the nice square or place royale, and you will be fine to leave the desserts to stop by here as we always do.

    Favorite Dish: we have the small 3 flavors cup to the big 5 flavors cones, of all nice flavors all is good here,no need to choose. Coffee is extraordinary.

    La Cigale: a landmark in Nantes -cigales

    by gwened Written May 9, 2013
    La Cigale entrance
    1 more image

    This is a landmark chic branchée restaurant of Nantes, the ambiance is refine and the service and food sublime. This is what folks comes to France for ,the food at its best done and presented with tradition at stake.

    right in place gasclin across from the theater ,you can't beat the experience. Since 1895 a must in Nantes. The surrealist painters came here like always a table for André Breton or Jacques Prévert. Jacques Demy does the film of Lola in 1961, and the actors/es of the theater make a ritual.

    sundays are no problems here,and a nice choice. you can take home and have a boutique for purchases of souvenirs as well. You can combine a meal and a visit to the theater , nice. The salons inside or rooms are just wonderful, enough to go in to see.

    Favorite Dish: I have come here on business and enjoy the formule express according to the chef recommendations of the day. The family was brought in for lunch and enjoy the formule chic choc of the day. All here is sublime you can't go wrong. The oysters are magnificents.

    a wonderful seafood restaurant nicely decorated with great service always, in a prime location at place royale just behind the fountain representing Nantes. Glamorous and good food.

    They are always reliable all over, our favorite independant chain of restaurants with an Alsacien look and taste but French overall.

    you have the choice of inside richly decorated , the heated enclosed terrace, or the outdoor terrace.

    Favorite Dish: choucroutes are the best and have try them all, this time it was the choucroute confit de canard or leg of duck. camembert roti with honey, magret de canard or slices of duck very nice from the best part; steack hache or ground steakburger, flamenkuche of goat cheese, all with nice affligem beers and you are done for lunch!!!

    by mustertal Updated Feb 5, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Webb Ellis Rugby bar, was a great place for the rugby fans to meet up before the World Cup. The owner made everyone very welcome, with big screens for people to watch the rugby matches being played in other parts of France..
    The bar is decorated with rugby memorabilia from all over the world.

    Favorite Dish: We had some lovely Pate from the local market with lots of fresh French bread, they served all types of local food.
    They have their own label wine and lots of different beers.

    La Piazza d���Italia
    2 more images

    We were a group of 5 people looking for something cheap to eat, while walking near the train lines we noticed this italian restaurant and we entered inside although the view outside was really bad due to road constructions (pic 1).

    There was a big room full of locals. The service was a bit slow but we didn’t really care.
    The menu was typical Italian with many salads(7,5-10,5e), pasta and other mains. There’s a great variety of pizzas of course (from 9,8e to 13,9e), we were a group of 5 people so we tried several different ones and we shared. Calzone (pic 2) was nice but cant say the same for the others especially the spicy one that was a killer for the stomach.

    I was excited to check the famous crème brulee (pic 3) which was supposed to be homemade but I felt a bit disappointed from that and I missed the amazing crema catalana (they are similar anyway). They also have crème caramel, chocolat mousse, tiramisu and many more (from 4 to 6 euros)

    Brasserie de la Bourse

    Oh, how lovely are the French people when they don’t know English! :)

    We had some funny moments here, it was a morning that we were heading for the wooden elephant but we stopped here for a coffee. There are some tables outside so it was perfect on a sunny day of june. The lady came:
    -bonjour!
    -bonjour! We would like a cappuccino
    -cappuci?
    -coffee,
    -...
    -cafe
    -...

    She actually said something in French so I followed here inside and she showed me some cups of coffee! I pointed out the big one and I also asked for a sandwich, she seemed she was listening a really unique new word from a place somewhere in the desert of west sahara.... a client came, he heard the dialogue and told her that we wanted a sandwich (which is actually the same word in French...)

    5’ later the lady came with a tiny cup of coffee (not the one I pointed at), a big cup of coffee and a sandwich (actually a big peace of fresh bread with jam and pickles! We loughed, we ate the sandwich, we enjoyed the sun and we gave 4,5e for the coffee and the sandwich. It was time to meet the wooden elephant

    Aux delices des Nantais: kebap Aux delices des Nantais

    Aux delices des Nantais

    This could be a tourist trap also, while most of the eating places were closed (it was around 23.00 on a weekday) we decided to eat a kebap on this small Turkish place.

    It seemed a bit dirty but nothing we havent seen before, some locals with beers were chatting at the back but the problem was that the meat seemed really bad. My friends tried some sandwiches with kebap, they all survived but according to them the taste was mediocre. I preferred to be on diet that evening :)

    They gave 5 euros for each sandwich and we left the place. There were on display some other “Turkish” items like lokums and baklava but no one dared to try any :)

    bar/brasserie DANA
    2 more images

    One evening we entered at DANA, a tiny bar/brasserie for a glass of wine.

    There is some space inside, a big table at the back room (pic 3) but also some space outside, 2 tables actually (pic 2) if you don’t want to listen to music. We ended up staying there for hours drinking Saint Gustan rouge beer (3euro each) and having some great long chats.

    The guy behind the bar was very friendly, there was a nice collection of beers, wines(some organic ones but we didn’t try them), and long drinks but we also loved the music at the background, there was a nice playlist on the computer from indie rock to several different genres.

    It’s open Tuesday to Sunday 14.00-02.00am

    tables outside La Tartirerie

    Walking around the old city (the city center anyway) were stopped here for something light to eat.

    We liked the tables outside anyway, it was great spot to see the people passing by without having to pay a fortune for a coffee. This small place has some very tasty fresh sandwiches for about 3 euros but also hamburgers with frites (5,40e), Double burger ou cheese ou chicken ou bacon (4,90e), some pastries, ice cream etc

    The girl that served us was very sweet too! :)

    Cafe Le Pilori: A picturesque place to have a coffee

    A really lovely little place to sit and have a coffee or a beer. There are a group of tables outside, with waiter service, and it's nice to relax and watch the world go by.

    The drinks are a little expensive though - 3.40 euros for a cafe au lait, and 3euros for a coke.
