Restaurants in Nantes

The main dining districts are the modern city centre and historic Graslin area. Both offer many affordable high-quality restaurants specialising in traditional French and regional cuisine. There's more sophisticated modern French or fusion dining too, notably at Nantes' premiere gastronomic name, L'Atlantide, on the waterfront. Last orders for dinner are generally about 9pm or 10pm. Service is included in menu prices, so there's no need for an additional tip.
