With its dining room and outdoor terrace overlooking the Sèvre River, facing the Château de Clisson (a magical view, especially in the evening), this dreamlike setting is perfect for two, or as a family. Aficionados come for the classic, regional dishes mixed with exotic influences. Pan-seared gilt-head bream, yuzu lemon butter; confit leg of lamb in a spring roll with Moroccan flavours; calamari in a Thai broth; chocolate crème brûlée with spices. Prix-fixe menus include: Menu du Marché, Menu du Chef, and Accord mets et vins (where food and wine are paired together) – all of which are affordable.
