For those who take the time to explore the surroundings of the Dobrée Museum, the dazzling chef Céline Mingam rewards you with her tantalising, comforting, exquisite and mostly wallet-friendly “bistronomic” cuisine. Opened in 2019, this former bistro has been given a facelift with white walls, contemporary furniture and creative lighting, all while keeping its intimate and convivial charm. In addition to the superb natural wine list, the Nantes Baribale, a traditional Nantes-style beer, pairs wickedly with the address.
