Really cosy place.

Everything (even the sides) was super tasty, fresh and very well combined.

As for the wine, trust the woman. Amazing knowledge.

Will be back for sure.

The café-restaurant inside the Musée des Beaux Arts was not tempting so we went in search of somewhere else nearby before returning to see more of the Musée. By happy chance we fell on Bistrot l’Alchimiste and had a delicious lunch. We were welcomed, even a little after 14:00 when many restaurants in Nantes stop serving lunch, and were made to feel comfortable in every way. Good wine at a reasonable price too.

Thank Thomas P

I am very happy that you enjoyed your lunch at the Bistrot. You were lucky that we were able to serve you at that time because I may say that sometimes it's not possible !
It's good that you feel comfortable as it is very important for us to let our customers feeling relax. Looking forward to having you again.

Very good service and nice food - everything was served very tempting and decoratively. The service was excellent, and nice to get wine by glasses to a fair price.

Thank you so much for your comment. You are more than welcome anytime you are next in Nantes.
The duck comes from a Producer 10 miles away from the bistrot so it's local. The chef is very happy that you enjoyed it.

Went here (for dinner) as wanted modern French cooking but without the massive price tag and we were very pleased. Small, select menu and everything sounded delicious. We had 3 courses each with wine paring plus a cheese board to share and this came to €140 including tip (in my opinion, very reasonable). The quality of the food was excellent, the portions large and really nice twists on classic dishes. Wine paring was also brilliant and we were given a tour of unusual French wines that really were delicious and pared excellently. Service was extremely attentive and friendly. Lovely decor too. Recommend but make sure you book. When we told our hotel receptionist that we had booked here she seemed very pleased and said that she hadn't mentioned it as she thought it was "too French" - a massive recommendation to me . My photos don't do it justice and didn't take any of the restaurant as didn't want to bother the other diners but the website is a true reflection.
