We were having the conference dinner during our stay in Nantes, and had a lovely meal, served by friendly staff, accompanied with excellent local wines, whilst watching the magnificent borders of the Erdre, definitely worth the money.

Floating restaurant that is a must do if in Nantes France. Don't expect fine dining but it is excellent! The boat is well equipped, even the toilets are clean and easy to access..out trip lasted about 4 hours. The boats have flood lights for when it's dark. Very popular tourist attraction.
