Innovative food, overall good experience

I arrived on a Friday night just before 20:00 to find the restaurant (which opens at 19:30) empty. Not a good sign I thought, but I went in anyway.

I wanted to be careful and not give more than 4 stars to a restaurant without good grounds, but then there was nothing to complain about. The decor and the musical ambience were pleasing and conducive to a smart casual atmosphere. The fact that the kitchen is visible from the dining room is a plus in my book. It proves... More

Looking round the centre of a very quiet Pau for a nice dinner location we thought we were going to be disappointed. My wife's eagle eyes eventually spotted this quite unobtrusive restaurant. Good menu options (but not too many). In we go. Ambience good. Background music reserved and cool. Most importantly food and service by the husband and wife team... More

We found the restaurant by chance and very glad that we did. We ate here twice during our 3 day midweek stay in Pau. The food was excellent especially the cod and the apple crumble. It was tempting to have the same dishes on both occasions but we resisted and were not disappointed. The service was excellent and there was... More

I had dinner recently with freinds at this lovely resturant. The service was freindly and efficient and the food good. My starter of duck confit spring rolls was fab. My main of lobster with risotto was ok the lobster perhaps slightly over cooked, but a minor point only. If your in Pau give it a try you won't be disapointed.
