This was fine dining, distinctively french with its insistence on local and fresh ingredients, my entree was cépes as the season for them had just began while my wife had some amazing vegetable dish, that featured a very exotic french Spring Roll. We both had one of the specials of the day, wild pigeon. The major portions dripping blood, seared... More

Nothing fell short of superb when we had dinner at this fabulous restaurant just over the river from downtown Bordeaux. Easy to get to on B line tram. We ate a la carte to splash out for a birthday celebration and were pleasantly surprised how reasonable the bill was. I have eaten at the French Laundry in Yountville (3 MIchelin... More

Reservations are a must even on a weekday at this inspired and highly rated establishment. For dinner you have a choice of the fixed fare or a choice from the menu (3 courses). We ate A la Carte...

From the main entrance you can't say to much about this restaurant, but as soon as you go inside, you quickly forget about the noisy street and cars outside. The main room is modern and chic, but if you're lucky (and i was) to have a table in the terrace at the back of the restaurant, you would enjoin your... More

We had a superb lunch. €34 for two courses; great value especially considering the quality & creativity of the cooking. The dôme d'asperges blanches was exquisite - a real culinary highlight for me. Followed by roulé de filet de soul & risotto de choux fleur which was just perfect. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to lovers of fine dining... More
