The former Domaine d’Orvault has undergone a complete makeover, and now attracts guests in search of seminars, nature, or simply relaxing as a family only 10 minutes from the city centre. Their prix-fixe menus are remarkably well-balanced: feuilleté (puff pastry) with roast green asparagus and little Comté cheese tuiles, roast pike-perch over a cider reduction, snow peas and green pea purée, cheeses from Chez Beillevaire, mousse de mandarine, cream of apricot and blood orange ice cream. Local winemakers are well-represented on the wine list, which is exclusively of Loire Valley wines.
Supreme of guinea fowl from Layon, aligot (mashed potatoes with garlic and tomme cheese).
½ Breton lobster.
Nantes-style iced soufflé.
