Had a really nice meal here. It's a tiny restaurant but the food was good and the service pleasant. It's a bit different and more hearty fare than most of the other places we tried in Bordeaux, but definitely tasty and well priced.

Packed in on restaurant row is a small restaurant with only about 5 tables outside. What really stands out is that they are not selling the same food as everyone else. We noticed that the diners the night before had little pans and decided to give it a try. The starters are interesting rather than salads and foie gras -... More

It's slightly off-putting to arrive somewhere for dinner and be the only people on the place after 8pm on a Saturday night. However, within a short while we were joined by a couple of other tables of people, and all was well! The food here is good, hearty Bordelaise stews and the like - very tasty and superbly cooked, with... More

After reading all the rave reviews we booked a table expecting great things. We needn't have booked because at 8pm on a Friday evening in June we were the ONLY customers when we arrived. We ordered a couple of stews/casseroles which are the house speciality: one beef, one lamb - 15Euros each. They were both pretty good, including a rich... More

We went early and got one of the last un-reserved tables at this petite delight. Our food, the DEE-licious Normandy-style pork, was served in copper casserole pans. We also shared the tarte tatin for dessert. One of the best meals on our trip.

We chose this restaurant according to the trip advisor ratings. The restaurant was fully booked but did not feel too busy. The service was good, but as there was only one waitress, there was the occasional wait for the to take our orders or plates to be cleared. The food was good, but not overly interesting: a salmon soufflé and... More

This lovely restaurant is very understated. All the courses were delicious and the service was quietly excellent. Thoroughly recommended. Best meal in Bordeaux.

This adorable place is on an ancient street packed with other restaurants. This is really a classy but causal place. We sat outside on a warm night and ate the mushrooms on pastry with tarragon sauce. The plate was clean when the Madame working the room took it away. Then the lamb Navarin couldn't have been better. The meat tender... More
