Mediocre meal at best; considering it boast two stars. It was bad or inedible but pretty lame. Unbalanced and uncreative dishes. I really expected it to be better.

Upon walking through the artistic classy doors I was in awe, the smell as well as the sight was alluring with a grand piano in the entryway and an enticing staircase we were destined to ascend to have our aperitif. Wow! The room was spectacular it reminded me of Beetlejuice with its dark appearance contrasted by bright gigantic fuchsia vases hanging on the wall flourishing black flowers. The apero matched the inventive gothic style and was arranged in artfully unique skewers of different sizes displaying culinary masterpieces one for example was a lavender colored meringue/marshmallow covered foie gras!
The rest of the 8 course meal was equally artistic and scrumptious! I absolutely loved the tomato sorbet with a Parmesan cracker and so many other dishes such as the ris de veau wrapped in pasta topped with a Cajun seasoned lobster!
Chef Laurent Saudeau does a fantastic job of creatively using spices to add exceptional flavor. He was also very friendly and delightful when we had the pleasure of meeting him.
The sommelier Cyril did an astonishing job pairing the wines and we are very grateful for his knowledge and the unforgettable experience he provided for us!!
Thank you!!!

Everything seems oldfashioned even the places that have been renovated sound like fake!
The menu choice is too small and the staff not pro enough for a Michelin star restaurant !
We were disappointed because we expected too much indeed!
For me is not the best restaurant in Nantes and I dont understand the red guid's inspectors......
