Lovely situation, pity about the food!

We ate here without checking out the reviews, something we rarely do nowadays. But it was a lovely, mild November evening and we were attracted by the outside seating, the name (shared with my husband) and its location in a beautiful square. And certainly eating outside on a fabulous evening and... read more

Situated in a lovely square in the heart of Bordeaux. Four of us ordered the menu of the day and it was dreadful. The food quality was poor and it was cold. How can you 'screw up' a tagliatelli with tomato sauce? We are just so disappointed that we chose this place when there are so many lovely others in... More

Unfortunately found this place tonight and now feeling a bit nauseous. We ordered duck & steak dishes which were mixed up on delivery. It was quite difficult to identify between them. Both were very tough & undercooked. Most of the duck was left as it was difficult to cut, even with a steak knife.

3.75 hour meal including having lost our order. The servers seem trained not to make eye contact lest they actually be asked for something. We watched a guest at another table who had finally gotten his order, which must have been wrong, actually carry the plate to the cash register to get attention. Soon after, the manager came over to... More

We ate very taste food by an aceptable price. We paid 17€ aprox per person. The staff were not very polite and the service was slow.

restuarant is in a little square in bordeaux and was very busy on a monday lunchtime. The set menu was good value for money but the service was very poor. Got orders wrong and were disinterested throughout. Needs to up their game as there are better run restuarants nearby

Terrible and slow service. Really soso food. Absolute tourist trap. We fell for the full seatings, was a mistake. Try Chez Jean or Totto around, those two have way better review and way less of a wait too

We visited this establishment twice during our visit to Bordeaux but the quality of the food seemed variable. We had a couple of steaks which were really tough and undercooked relative to what we asked for but the starters and a couple of other main courses were quite good. Probably deserves 3.5 stars. Value for money overall was good.

The other three of the comapny had the butchers choice which was ineadible. We sent the food back and sid that it was not good at all and they still charged us for the... More

Ate here last year and couldn't fault it. This year, food was average and service appalling. My salad didn't arrive until others had finished their main course. Was quite nice when it came but children's sausages were boiled type hot dogs and 'well done 'steak was rare. Coffee situation similarly chaotic. Always busy as right on the square but there...
