My partner and were passing through Nantes on our trip through France. On our walk through the historic Rue KervÃ¨gan we came across a cute little brasserie Ã Cantina Nantes. We sat down and were immediately produced with a board of daily specials that all sounded very nice, but we decided to stick to the 20â¬ three course lunch menu. The food was typically French fare with a little Italian influence! My beef carpaccio with pesto was as fresh as it could be! Our mains were just as tasty and prepared with simple elegance. Dessert featured a delicious warm chocolate cake with fresh cream and raspberry sauce. The staff were all charming and helpful. For those intrepid english speaking travellers, such as ourselves, it was to good to find some where we felt welcome and comfortable, as some of them spoke English. A small bar in the other half of the restaurant also offered little treats, such as foie gras croquettes, we discovered! This family run bistro in the centre of this crazy little town was a little gem in a sea of pebbles! Highly recommend this place, if you are ever in Nantes, make sure you get there!

If you like tapas,this is the place to go. This is a family-type business,with one fine chap serving many,and boy,he does a good job.Just a bit off the beaten track,but well worth time/effort.You'll love the food/wine/ambience in this cosy restaurant
Joli cadre, personnel souriant et agrÃ©able. Bon mais rien d'exceptionnel et un peu cher. Pas un choix Ã©norme dans les plats et desserts.

It's a 'bistrot' type restaurant where you can find a short selection of starters main course and dessert. All fresh food from the local market of Talensac; The speciality of this place is to accompany your menu with a glass of wine (blind tasted)
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'Alchimiste 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 menu at l'Alchimiste changes often, and is typically limited to a choice of three entrees (appetizers), two meat and two fish plats (main courses), and choice of either a cheese plate or three different desserts. The food is delicately wrought, perfectly prepared, and beautifully presented. Two of our party started with a pumpkin soup topped with a hazelnut mousse, and the other had shrimp nems with a pomegranate sauce. These entrees were excellent. For the plat, one of us had monk fish with grilled apples, another sea bass with potatoes and mango, and our third plat was a filet of beef with a mushroom pastry. All three were beautifully presented, and accompanied by delicate and rich sauces. We left nothing on any of our plates. Servings were generous, and there was no room for cheese. For desserts we had a complex nougat ice cream with a caramel sauce, creme brulee with red pepper, and a fig macaroon with glacee. The wine list at l'Alchimiste is well chosen and well priced, with many selections under 30 euros. We had a superb and locally produced 2009 Pierre Luneau-Papin Excelsoir muscadet, priced at 29 euros. They say that restaurants are tested when key staff are absent. On the night of our visit the chef de cuisine was absent and had surrendered his stoves to his female sous chef. Nonetheless we had a memorable meal of which a fine restaurant would be proud. 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.
