Delicious, copious food and warm welcome and service. The foie gras is superb as is all the food we tasted. Wonderful local wine list - nothing negative, except perhaps eaten too much!

It was my second time in la Gaillotiere and the experience was even greater than the first. The food is delicious and copious, the service excellent, and the location, at the terrace on a sunny day, was just astonishing. All under an amazing quality/price value. Everything just perfect for a family meal that created a beautiful memory of the spring... More

This place is just amazing. Showed up with no reservation and even if fully booked, they found us a space. Food superb and very well presented. Great value for money. Service friendly and efficient. Will be back again, when in the area.

Tucked away in the vineyard is L'Auberge La Gaillotière. The restaurant has inside and outside seating. Upon arrival we noticed that we were not alone to come and have dinner here. It is a wonderful spot because you are surrounded by vineyards. The atmosphere of the place is nice and relaxed. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. They serve... More

We arrived at 12.30 & the restaurant was already busy. We hadn't made a reservation but Madame kindly said she'd be able to accommodate us an hour later. On return it was even busier but we were quickly seated and had a delicious lunch of foie gras/melon salad followed by a country chicken dish, cheese then tasty, fresh fruit, cream... More

We were staying overnight at a very nice B&B (La Sermantille) and our hostess recommended this restaurant. We quickly made a reservation as it is probably the only restaurant for many miles around (at least nothing of this standard). We ordered the homemade foie gras to start and when this arrived we were lost for words: a huge block, and... More

The Auberge la Gaillotiere is located about 25 minutes south of Nantes in the middle of vines (this is the center of the Muscadet region). There is one dining room with various-szed tables that can host between 2 and 20 persons. The specialties are the homemade "foie gras" apetizer (the bread is also homemade) and various "cocottes" (mini-cauldrons with stewing... More

The Auberge was recommended to us by Thomas at La Demeure. It's in an old wine storage and has been very tastefully decorated with antiques and new furniture. The meal was wonderful. It is a prix fixe and our meal consisted of fish for one of us and chicken for the other, along with a cheese and dessert course. The... More
