Despite the very luke warm welcome from the host when we arrived and asked if he could accommodate a table for two, as we liked the look of the place with it’s very interesting décor we decided to stay. Our starters were only just OK but our main courses were dreadful. Our steaks were so tough we left them pretty... More

The restaurant has very quirky décor, however it was great French food we wanted not décor and what a disappointment the food at Chez Maman was! My Clams starter was overcooked and very underwhelming but the faux fillet I was served for main was totally inedible, it was so tough and full of gristle that I couldn’t even cut through... More

Me and my clients have loved this place's decoration and fresh fish. You can try special food from the region. I will definitely come back if I am in the center of Nantes again!

We didn't sit inside this place, so I cannot rave about the quirky decor or atmosphere. We had a rushed lunch with a highly stressed out waiter who, to be fair, had many tables to tend, one of which was very angry at him for a good hour, and with which he was constantly trying to make peace.... the meal...

A bit like wandering in a vintage wares shop, this restaurant is decorated with bric-a-brac of all sorts. Service is very warm, efficient and accommodating. Certainly a busy place so be early. Menu offers a good variety for most people.

what an exquisite and unique decor - a plunge back to childwood, among Playmobil toys and Martine books. Good food, big servings and a friendly service - though not very fast to take your order, they manage to prepare in no time! Air conditioning missing in the interior - luckily we stayed closed to the window, opened!

What a strange and usual place. The wine was really wonderful and the duck cooked to perfection per a taste of my dates dish. My steak was a bit dry since they ran out of the sauce I ordered but over all the place felt family owned and operated. It was very crowded and our order took a while but... More

As previously mentioned it is a quirky little restaurant which is quite dark & dismal (in my opinion) inside but it seems popular!! The waitress had very little English but was welcoming but unfortunately they had no English menu (you'd think in this day and age they would.. not everybody is fluent!). Based on my knowledge we chose one salmon... More
