I went there with my family back in June and the food was absolutely stunning! We had charcuterie, salads with lardons, foie gras, steaks, lamb chops... All mouth watering. The service is a bit slow as it is so popular! (We had not booked and they were packed). We will be back!!

Good place to eat at lunchtime, especially on market day (Tuesday). Friendly staff, choice of salads, menu or dish of the day. Our salads were enormous - fresh and flavoursome. The home made desserts were lovely and very good value. The local rosé served by the pichet was excellent. Had to arrive before 12.00 in order to get a table.... More

We visited for weekday lunch. We were almost the first diners at 12.05 but by the time we left almost every table was occupied. We had the menu du jour at €15 and a lovely white house wine. We will return on our next visit to Nant.

We ate here on 2 consecutive evenings. The menu du jour at 13.50 (available weekdays) is very good value and changes daily with local specialities such as aligot and tripe. There is a choice of 2 starters and 2 mains with 2 or 3 desserts. The first night we had salade de chevre chaud followed by aligot and sausage with... More

Le Petit Nantais was recommended by two women in the local grocery store after we had travelled a long day through the Cevennes. We were delighted to savor delicious local foods, including roquefort cheese, lamb, fish/trout, and, of course, a wine from the region. The restaurant filled during the evening with locals who appeared to be quite familiar with the... More

Our first visit was one lunchtime after visiting the local market. We chose the three course €13.50 fixed price menu. For this we were offered a choice of two or three starters, mains and desserts plus bread and water. Wine was extra. The food was simple but perfectly cooked and the service was relaxed and friendly. We were so impressed... More
