The welcome was nice and the service very correct. We had reserved for 4 inside because the weather was stormy and when we arrived, the weather was beautiful. Although the restaurant was full, they installed us a small additional outside table. It is a vegetarian restaurant which proposes a good variety of dishes. We tasted several and they were all...

I've been here several times. This last time was very good: spinach and parmesan tarte with lots of salad (beets, carrots, lettuce, etc). Everyone enjoyed their meal; the organic beer was delicious (get the amber ale = 'rousse'). HOWEVER, considering we ordered just quiches and salad, it was surprisingly slow (approx 25 minute wait?). They were friendly enough, but it... More

My friend and I went to L'Oiseau Cabosse for dinner one night in Bordeaux. Not only did they refuse to seat us until 8:30, but we were not waited upon until 9:00. Food then ran out quickly - our original order was changed FOUR times, and we did not actually eat until 10:15. The food we ate was delicious but... More

It is a recipe of disaster. Bad service with an attitude. We were five hungry tourists looking for a good discovery and good food on a rainy day. Unfortunately we were seriously disappointed by the level of arrogance and misguidance offered! To avoid at all cost.

We were looking forward to grab lunch there as it was well rated by other users but the lady behind the counter made it a miserable experience. Ruined our whole day.

Hot summer day, 4 hungry tourists. We were visiting Bordeaux with my brother and his wife when we walked upon this (mostly) outdoors café. Bordeaux, a lovely city, seems to be full of similar small restaurants, outspread on the sidewalk in the picturesque old downtown area, and I'm not sure why we spotted and chose this one. It offers an... More

Was only going to grab a beer, but exhaustion and tyranny of choice made it easier to just eat here. So glad we did. I honestly cannot remember a better meal for the price. I f this is hippy food, I'm signing up. So wish I was stopping longer in Bordeaux to eat here again.

Recommded by nice guy in Cousin & Compagnie wine shop - good simple (organic) food - you choose one or two options depending on how hungry you are - comes with bread and salad. Cider recommended and house white (Languedoc) very good - ran by relaxed / friendly people. Coffee good - Apple and Rhubarb tart fabulous.

IN the heart of Old Bordeaux, on the tiny place St. Columbe. Enjoy the salads and the plat du jour. This place fills up, so if its after 1pm, you had better just get a kebab. Lunch in France starts between 12 and 1, otherwise the good restaurants are full and you are quite limited....adapt or die

This is a favorite place. Simple and changing menu, served by a friendly small staff of charming ladies. Salads, lasagne, did I mention the desserts? In nice weather one can get a table outside on Place St Colombe, a unique narrow place that was created hundred(s) of years ago when the church by the same name collapsed and the narrow... More
