Loved this authentic French cafe. Had just returned from the Brittany region of France and enjoyed being taken back through the food and welcoming staff.

French charm and spectacular food. The European ambience was present the moment we walked in the door. The food was scrumptious, the owner delightful and engaging. I had the mushroom gratinee; and each bite was amazing. I will go back! We had a party of three for brunch and the other two had equally wonderful food.

There is a cozy atmosphere and it's quiet enough for conversation. The food is terrific, wine offerings very good. I really enjoyed the unique special tonight of gaspacho, which had peppery and bing cherry flavours....

Chez Nanou proposes real authentic French food, without being too fancy. It feels like being in France for an evening.

The only reason for the lesser overall mark is that the air-conditioning was not operating and I'm not a fan of being overheated. Otherwise great new find!

We've been there 3 times, both for dinner and brunch. Food has been excellent every time!

It's never too busy but I always make a reservation prior.

Simple home cooked French cuisine that is very very good. Soups are very good. Crepes are excellent! Always like the charcuterie and salmon plates to start. Dishes are not heavy and cream laden. Very fresh and flavorful. Nanou is a very sweet, humble chef. Small place... book in advance.
