Perfect choice

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

We were headed to a touristy restaurant but the proprietor of our B and B suggested this place instead. It was definitely more a locals restaurant and we really enjoyed it. I had read here that one reviewer said his wife rarely ate steak but she ordered it here and "saw what she had been missing." I had a similar... More

The manager of the B&B recommended this restaurant. We were arrived just after 8 pm. The restaurant was fully booked. No matter, the room manager found us a table. The food was well presented and delicious. In spite of the full house, we were well taken care of with grace and humour. This meal concluded our 3 day visit to... More

We had dinner here on a recent trip to Bordeaux and had mixed feelings about it. Food was good and staff were friendly but not very attentive. When booking we had told them that it was for a special occasion (birthday) but there was no note or reference to it. People around us that sat down after us had their... More

7 of us had a great meal here. The staff was friendly and helpful. Everyone loved their meal and the deserts were just as good. For the quality of the dinner the prices were very reasonable. A little off the beaten path but worth the trip. Would definitely return.

This little gem of a restaurant is worth going back to Bordeaux for just to dine there again. Friendly and helpful staff, a cosy ambience and gorgeous food for a very reasonable price made it an evening to remember for a very long time. I could not recommend it more highly, one of the best meals I have ver had... More

The first piece of advice is to ignore any local taxi drivers taking you to Le Bouchon Bordelais. Despite showing him my reservation on the phone he shouted 'Excuse me but I live here and am telling you that is a bar. Not a restaurant! Non!'. It was a good job we didn't heed his advice (perhaps a relative owned... More
