    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.

    Directions: Off the Place du Commerce.

    La Piazza d’Italia: La Piazza d’Italia

    by mindcrime Written Jul 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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: Brasserie de la Bourse

    by mindcrime Written Jul 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by mindcrime Written Jul 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 :)

    DANA: bar/brasserie DANA

    by mindcrime Written Jul 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by illumina Written Jan 31, 2010

    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.

    Address: 1 Place du Pilori, 44000 Nantes

    Directions: On the corner of Place du Pilori and Rue du Chateau, quite a short walk from the Cathedral.

    La Cigale: Decor and great food

    by Maidstoneman Written Sep 17, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ambience here is all important. You are surrounded by Art Nouveau architecture of the highest standard. The food and service matches the ambience.

    Favorite Dish: We had the set price menu which is the same price as you would pay in a much less prestigious establishment, thought you can pay very much mroe here if you want something special.

    Un coin en ville: Intimist

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Went twice to this restaurant recently and twice I have been very satisfied. Un coin en ville proposes great food in a nice decorated place. The decoration is very intimist so it is a great place to go with your girlfriend or your boyfriend.

    Pomme D’Or: stunning dining experience

    by nycwinnie Written Dec 3, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dinner was fantastic- 3 courses- couldn’t bring myself to do both frommages et desserts. However, when I go back, I will make sure not to eat ALL DAY in preparation, as it was more than worth it.

    Favorite Dish: The escargot was tender and earthy without being at all dirty in a sublime cream sauce. The Lott (a local freshwater fish- what the region is known for) was fleshy and light at the same time, and le frommages. I could live on le frommages. I nearly fainted with happiness at finally getting a really good camembert. Why can’t I find a good damn camembert in the states?? Accompanied by a half bottle of Sancerre red and washed down by an espresso, I was stuffed.

    Les pieds dans le plat: Good food, cool atmosphere

    by chess_machine Written Sep 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Les Pieds dans le Plat is situated Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, where you will find several other restaurants. To my opinon, it is one of the best restaurant in Nantes. Food is very good, great product, and nice presentation. The ambiance is cool too.

    Favorite Dish: Dont remember what I took. I ordered from the menu, which shows very good quality for price ratio.

    Le Bouche ? Oreille: Lyons cuisine

    by chess_machine Updated Dec 10, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is what we call a "bouchon", which means a typical restaurant from Lyons.

    As every "bouchon", the food is heavy, made mainly with sausages and other pork food.

    I have been there a long time ago so the people who own the restaurant may have changed.

    Good and friendly service.

    Good food (not exceptionnal but really a good price/quality of food rating).

    Excellent ambience when you are with your friends. It often occurs that you finish talking with you neighbours.

    Well, a great restaurant if you want to experience new meals and have a good time.

    Favorite Dish: I remember the salade lyonnaise was good.

    Address: rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau

    Directions: City center (street near Place Graslin)
