La Cantine du Voyage
The place to be on sunny days

This fun and lively restaurant was created for the 2013 edition of Le Voyage, and is now on the menu every summer. 

Like a holiday resort for locals – and a fun, social and ephemeral space for the visitors who discover it – La Cantine du Voyage has become an essential stop, with its restaurant and bar. 


La Cantine was colourfully decorated by Nantes-based collective Appelle-moi papa, which also designed the all-ages playground La Colline: a hilly playscape that looks like it’s straight out of one of their drawings! Its round and generous forms make it a whimsical, technicolor land where you can climb, roll around, slide, play, lay around — and more!

Le Potager de la Cantine (the Cantine’s vegetable garden) has reinvented urban farming in Nantes. At the origin of its design, maintenance, and harvests is Olivier Durand – a household name to the greatest chefs. Le Potager is home to Lilian Bourgeat’s work Invendus-Bottes: a humorous, allegorical vision of a market gardener who left one of their working tools behind.
