    A recommander. Excellent du début à la fin. On pourrait passer devant sans prêter attention... à tort.

    Food is more than perfect! But service definitely should improve! We had reservations, arrived on time and had to wait for 10minutes outside in the rain because they were not ready... The dessert we would like to order was not anymore available. Good cost benefit.

    3rd year in a row where we have had pre-Hellfest dinner in this fantastic restaurant. The service is second to none. My son is severe celiac, and the staff are fully helpful, explaining the menu and adjusting to his needs. The staff wine recommendation can never be faulted. There is a set menu with good variety, and the prices are amazing value for money. The presentation of the food on the plates was fabulous. The pace of the serving was exactly right. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. I always have dinner at L'Instinct Gourmand, it's walking distance from Radisson Blu hotel and central to many lively streets in Nantes.
