I had a late lunch (one great attribute of this restaurant is that it is open nonstop) and there were very few other patrons. Wonderful Art Nouveau interior. The staff was moderately friendly although a bit formal, and quite professional. I had a fish dish...More

We booked this restaurant on the basis of the lovely pictures on Trip Advisor. The dining room was certainly lovely although it had more of a cafe feel than a fine-dining restaurant. There were lots of families in attendance , perhaps because it was All...More

One must have lunch or dinner at this Brasserie at least once whilst visiting Nancy. It is pure Art Nouveau style. It was built in 1910 by the well known architect Lucien Weissenburger and has stained glass window panels by Jacques Gruber. We had dinner...More

This restaurant near the train station is most notable for its Art Nouveau decor. It can seem over the top if you are not an Art Nouveau fan, but it is definitely worth seeing. We only had drinks, so I can't comment on the food.

The Excelsior is a spectacular 1911 art nouveau survival. Friendly service and we enjoyed our oysters and the green beans which accompanied our main course. But our entrecôtes (€32.50 each) were pretty awful - full of gristle and fat. Also our 2012 Château Victoria Haut...More

Lovely looking building real French art nouveau. Food scrumptious a definite must visit. It's very busy so booking is a good idea.

I had one hour while waiting for my train. Going here seemed like a good idea, especially after having visited the same place yesterday, and since everybody in Nancy boasts about it. The waitress however seemed completely uninterested in me as a foreigner, but served...More
