Every single dish we had was delicious. Gazpacho with cucumber and pepper was very tasty and the bruschetta was brilliant. Great wine list, good prices. Staff couldn't have been more helpful.

Five stars should be six or seven! At 20;00 most of the guest arrive at the restaurant. Impressive how the friendly staff manages this. Attention for every guest, a warm welcome. Then the experience starts, what an explosion of flavoures, well managed.. The langoustines were perfect, the beef, never had it so tasteful and tender and the dessert, it was... More

Saw this restaurant on passing by, and liked the look of. Excellent food prepared by Chef/Patron, was so good that we went back the following night. Both fish and meat very well cooked and vegetables were originally prepared and served. Small, but very good wine list, several of which available by the glass if required. Wines selected by charming Front... More

We had a fantastic dinner at Le Bouchon Bordelais. There are only 4 or 5 choices per course. We tried a number of them and loved them all. The main course beef and veal options were exceptional. A real highlight was the quality of the 'kids meals' which were really excellent proper food at super value E9 per child for... More

Chose this restaurant for local colour and innovative food, we got this and much much more. We got a very warm and genuine welcome, a lot of help with the menus and wine. Food was quite outstanding, would visit again anytime.

Delicious food and excellent wines. Small and cosy restaurant near Opera. Very friendly and helpful personal. We managed to get a table through reservation and I'll recommend that.

We booked a day in advance for my birthday with a lovely english speaking co-owner.When we arrived i was charmed by the intimate size of the restaurant with open limestone walls and original artwork on the walls.We were initially overwhelmed by the french menus so opted instead for the 'surprise'menu which turned out to be an amazing 10 course meal...

Just returned to my hotel after an excellent dinner. The staff, the chef and the food was wonderful. Best dinner (by far!) to date after 4 days in Bordeaux. The escargot (Chef's Mothers recipe) was fantastic. Very good wine by the glass at 4.50 was also a big plus. Love the "walnut" dressing too. Make a reservation and dine here... More
