2 Potes Au Feu Logo

I have to admit that I’m constantly blown away by the food at this restaurant. It’s the closest decent restaurant to my place at just 1 tram stop away so it’s well worth it.

It has some very stylish deco which while I’m not a huge fan of it, it really does work for the place.

2 Potes au Feu Menu du Jour

You can see the pricing above for the Plat du Jour … very reasonable for the food and quality they offer.

Knife and Fork

They keep it consistent and take care of the little details as well

Leffe de Noel

It being christmas at the moment they’ve got some nice Leffe de Noel on tap. They generally have two menus the above which is the Menu du Jour and is great value for the quality of the food or their normal menu which works out at around 18.90 for a starter / main or main / dessert. I’m not a huge dessert person so I always opt for the starter / main. The Menu Du Jour menu works out at I think 12.90 for a starter / main or main / dessert and maybe 15.90 or thereabouts for all three.

For the starter I opted for a marscapone with beetroot something or other … so weird so rich so tasty … the only thing I’d have loved on it would have been a few walnuts!z2Starter2 z2Starter3

For my main I opted for the house burger and dear god is it nice. I’m just always confused as to how one is meant to eat it. Burgers for me are things you pick up with your hands and munch into but it’s HUGE so it might get messy!

Burger you say

The house fries end up looking very greasy and they are to a certain extent but it really works for them.z2Burger

Perfect portions / Perfect food. I’ve yet to have a bad experience there.

If I had one complaint it’d be that the service can take a while, especially when you’re ducking out on your lunch break and have to take a tram there and back. Will it stop me from going there? Not on your life.

Did I mention how nice it is for the owner to come over and shake your hands when you get there and ask how you’re doing?

Want to know more? Go eat there or check out their website. I should add it’s not anywhere near the city centre. You’d need to take a tram from Commerce 10 stops which would take about 10 – 15 minutes. You’d then need to walk for about 5 minutes from the tram stop. I’d highly recommend it though.

What do other people think of it?

Well I know my wife loves it as well so apart from that I can’t vouch for other people.

Le Stefano Nantes

The first time I wandered by this place my mind screams oh god the signage

Le Stefano

But surprise surprise this is a rather excellent place to have lunch. It’s on the same square as my previous post on La Table Venitienne believe it or not right beside it the terrace is practically joined.

Le Stefano Menu Close up

Today saw us there for the lunch time special Plat du Jour (dish of the day) and the lunch time menu.

Le Stefano Menu

I immediately saw the Plat du Jour and thought to myself god I miss Spain and the cooking. The plat du jour was a “Spanish” Gratin for the love of god they knew I was coming. Next thing I know we’re being given 2 glasses of Sangria on the house which seems to be a Friday special but given it’s the 13th of July the day before Bastille day a lot of people will be taking a long weekend. (PS: They normally give a free glass on Fridays for those interested.)

FREE BOOZE

Struggling through the sangria we both waited for our food. Val chose to go with the Full Menu and I chose just to go with the Plat du Jour. The Full Menu comes with a lovely choice of salads from a salad bar and there’s quite a bit to choose from. It always comes with a half bottle of house wine ( Red / Rose ), a desert and a coffee. That one comes to the price of €12.50 (which is reminiscent of spanish menu del dia prices)

Spanish Gratin

My plat du jour came and I have to say it was lovely (I’ll be trying to cook something similar shortly and hopefully not failing too badly) The table wine was … table wine :) perfectly nice.

I do love a coffee

I rarely have deserts and I opted out of having the Menu special ( which is a grilled meat of some kind or the plat du jour ) BUT Val doesn’t really drink and well she tends not to go near the coffee so it was all MINE!!! :)

All in all I loved it. Extremely friendly staff … the location as on the previous post was rather excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed myself no doubt the sangria helped but .. SHUSH)

All in all I’ll be back seriously at the price the quantity of food and the staff you’d be mad not to. Doesn’t hurt it’s only 5 minutes walk away from our place.

Roll on Bastille Day :)
