Great meal in a great atmosphere

Great meal on a nice square. Waiters were very friendly and helped us when we were doubting our choice :-)

We went for lunch and dinner while in Bordeaux. We had set menu for both meals and food was fine but it was very noisy due to low roofs and stone, the whole experience was disappointing.

I had dinner here on the Sunday of my weekend visit to Bordeaux, I booked by email from the UK. and received an immediate confirmation. I ordered Le cabillaud (cod) and a dessert called Le chocolat intense. Both were delicious and beautifully presented. Warning: the dessert is well named. I wish I'd had the opportunity to try more of their... More

Not amazing - we only went as it was one of the only places open on a Sunday - fine for a standard steak and chips - but not really worth visiting otherwise.

This place was recommended by our hotel and we're glad we went. The staff were friendly and helpful as we don't speak French. My husband had the pork plat and I had the lamb. It was the best we've ever had. We asked them to pair our food with wine and we enjoyed that as well. Very reasonable prices also.... More

We went here on a Sunday evening and were seated in a delightful upstairs dining room. Tables spaced well apart for privacy. We were warmly greeted by a friendly waiter who gave us excellent service throughout the evening. I ordered the Ris de Veau entree and the Rognons de Veau. The Ris was a small portion as you would expect... More

One by one I ordered a menu consisting of 3 dishes Entree was "cheap" looking and the same was the taste. Main course - was some fried pork with lots of fat (50/50 meat and fat). Maybe it should have been like this, but someone's liver could fail from so much fat. Moreover, the carrot which was served with cochon... More

The venue is unassuming set in a small square just off the river front. But of all the eateries in the square this has to be my favourite. The menus is stunning, the food beautifully presented and innovative.... the starters in particular are worthy of note. The service was friendly and welcoming. This is one not to miss if in... More

We booked a table through Trip Advisor based on the reviews and we certainly were NOT disappointed! We chose to sit inside (although the atmosphere is fantastic in the square too). We were instantly made to feel so welcome by the staff and they spoke clear English which was helpful to us French ignorant speakers! The waiter recommended a beautiful... More
