I certainly don't want to become a reviewer who drops a restaurant points over the smallest of details, but when you're paying this kind of money (€130 per person for the gourmet menu) then you expect everything to be exemplary.

We were expecting big things but it missed the mark. The service was fantastic as was the wine however the flavour combination didn't really work. For the price you expect perfection. This was far off the mark. Real shame

We ordered the 'surprise menu' and each course, including side dishes, of this 8 course degustation was absolutely beautiful. The presentation was elegant, the food was prepared and cooked perfectly and each dish was conceived brilliantly! Not too heavy, nor too light. The flavours were balanced and each dish had its own intent and delivered a different experience to the... More

This restaurant is everything that one could imagine and more. The service was the perfect balance of attention while allowing you to enjoy your evening. The wine selection was incredible both in the terms of variety but also the balance. Too often at great restaurants there are no wine options with less than three digits. Not the case here. And...

Michelin starred restaurants usually bring an unusual dining experience to the table. Its all good, but also a matter of interpretation. If you are thinking cheeseburger, run in the opposite direction. If you are a foodie looking for an exceptional (albeit alternative) food experience, stop here. Le Pavillon des Boulevards deserves their stars and should be a first stop for... More

We had the tasting menu and accompanying flight of wines. All well-matched. At first service was, well, a bit cool, but the staff warmed up to us as the evening went on, to where we felt quite welcome. A great evening overall, and we highly recommend it. (Parking is challenging, but one of the staff was very helpful getting us... More

I agree very much with the previous reviewer: everything is very good and technically impeccable but it lacks flair. None of the dishes were really surprising or challenging, something I expect from a place with a Michelin star and at this price. The wine by glass chosen by the sommelier was excellent but quite expensive (18 € per glass). Service... More

We went for the tasting menu here - there really is no other option. The food was very, very good. But compared to some of the restaurant s we have been to elsewhere it was lacking in flair. The wines pairings were the strongest point of the evening - some great local surprises. And another observation: passion fruit and coconut... More

We've spent a family dinner (6) in this restaurant last week. Good welcome - nice staff. We were installed on 1st floor in this old townhouse of Bordeaux which used to be a family house in the past. We had a 8 course menu at Euro 85 each which is reasonable if you consider that this is high quality French... More

Visited in June 2014. Thought we would try a "class" place. Went for the top of the range tasting menu. Of the ten or eleven courses two or three were "amazing", three or four were "very good"and the others "good". I did not feel that this was a great strike rate considering a total cost including mid range wine of... More
