My hubby and me when there 2 weeks ago. The services was excellent and charming as always. Nothing was missing from our table. We arrived earlier on Friday and you had the chance to see everything before got busy. The restaurant was clean and although empty at that time didn't feel cold. The food is always beautiful and also delicious.... More

We really enjoyed our evening at Dax. The food was to die for, as was the wine. Homemade bread, crab tortellini, duck breast - washed down with my all time fav wine, Vouvray. No space for dessert sadly. Excellent in every way.

My wife and I went to this restaurant after watching a very poor Wales lose to Ireland , we needed cheering up , and this restaurant did exactly that . I'd sourced it on trip advisor and booked for an early meal , they wanted the table back by 8:30 , this was never an issue . The welcome was... More
