Excellent food (ate the 10 hour cooked pork). Efficient, friendly and considerate staff who explained each dish and recommended a wine without rushing. The best French restaurant in Bordeaux !

This was our last night and wish we had gone someplace else. The duck I ordered was served in two huge slabs as if a huge breast had been cut in half so it was very very tough to try and cut and because it as not sliced thin it was tough to chew. I know this is a more... More

Busy place situated close to the market halls. Ideal place to go for drinks or for decent food served quickly by friendly staff in a relaxed atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

We were a group of 10 and went there quite late for a French restaurant (although we did have a reservation). The servers were very nice and helpful. The food was great. Some of the dishes are completly reinvented. Even if it is not a cheap restaurant, prices are affordable. It is very good price for quality food! Honestly, one... More

OK this restaurant is in popular tourist land, but as it had quite a few locals in business suits, and as it was very popular, being one of the few restaurants with places in the shadow at lunchtime, I got the last table available on their terrace. Service was ok. The starter was a delicious cucumber gazpacho, but I had... More

My friends & I dined here on a Friday night. Quentin did an excellent job translating the menu to English and making us feel comfortable. The food was spectacular. Among the 3 of us we tried the veggie & asparagus appetizer, the pork special, cod, hamburger & desserts. Everything was flavorful & delicious. A fabulous dining experience!

We enjoyed our meal in this restaurant, the food was good but found the service mixed. Our male waiter was very friendly and cheery but the female waitress was miserable, unfriendly and bordering on very rude!

Really poor food. The fois gras was watery, the os a moelle not cooked enough. The risotto was not a rissoto.inside smell of toilettes. Staff was friendly, location is good but food is horrible. I would not recommend this place.
