About the restaurant L'Alchimiste

À DEUX PAS DE LA CATHÉDRALE - Le bistrot L’Alchimiste, situé à Nantes, à deux pas de la cathédrale Saint-Pierre, vous convie à sa table dans un cadre raffiné dans les tons clairs à l’ambiance cosy.

AU MENU - Au menu, vous vous régalerez avec la cuisine française du Chef! Tous les mets sont préparés exclusivement avec des produits frais principalement du marché de Talensac voisin. Les poissons varient suivant la criée et les viandes suivant la sasion et l'envie du chef. Et, pour accompagner votre repas, la carte des vins offre un choix intéressant ainsi que la possibilité de déguster les vins aux verres à l'aveugle.

COURS D'OENOLOGIE - La direction propose également des cours d’œnologie, le soir (lundi au jeudi) puis redevient restaurant le soir en fin de semaine. Et, pour vos événements festifs, l´établissement permet la privatisation du lieu. Une adresse à connaître au plus vite!

The proprietor Béatrice Dominé makes this place -- she IS the alchimiste ! She holds the prestigious Diploma in Wine from the Wine & Spirit Educational Trust in London, and she speaks fluent English. Wine here receives the attention you would expect, with regional wines such as Muscadet well represented in a very good list. It is Mme Dominé's warm and intelligent hospitality, however, which sets the tone, making guests feel very welcome and at ease. The food is wonderful : I don't know how they managed to get so much flavour into an asparagus soup, but they did. A fish dish (merlu/hake) was inventive and delicious. A strawberry tart was sublime. All-in-all a memorable meal and outstanding value. If I lived in Nantes, I'd probably try to eat here every week.

l'Alchimiste refers to itself as a Bistrot, conjuring visions of moules with pomme frites and steak tartare. You will have none of this here. Instead, you will enjoy a cerebral, delicately wrought meal of the highest quality and finesse. Recently we were impressed at an early dinner for three on a Friday evening. l'Alchemiste is nicely situated near the Nantes cathedral, with a comfortable, reasonably spacious and quiet dining room. We were warmly welcomed by our server, who was attentive throughout the dinner, anticipating all of our requests. The wine list at l'Alchimiste is well chosen and well priced, with many selections under 30 euros. Prices are more than fair for food of this quality, with 20-23 euro plats. We spend considerable time not too far from Nantes, and after our recent experience, it will not be long before we return. If you find yourself in Nantes, you will surely have an exhilarating dining experience at l'Alchimiste.
