“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We ate here on Friday night and the food was supreme, particularly the wood pigeon to start. The pre starter presented to us was a lovely touch and it was delicious. Have already recommended this restaurant to friends.

“Nice food but would expect more ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Dax is nice, food and service good but for the price and reputation I would have expected more. I think there are cheaper places where food is as good.

“Suberb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We were visiting on a business trip and as I have a severe nut allergy I called ahead to check the menu. On the actual evening, not only were the staff well informed, but were so discreet and helpful with my situation. The food was delicious and carefully prepared for me. The wines were amazing and the service was fantastic! Had the grilled fish which was really beautifully cooked! Thoroughly good evening and I would definitely return!
