“Amazing Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Small restaurant, you will need a reservation. The girl who runs the floor is sweet and helpful, though since she is the only one, service is slow. There is really no reason to complain, however - food is amazing and the 4 or 5 set course is a great deal. Excellent and recommended!

“Great local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

We ate here on a Saturday night. The restaurant was fully booked mainly with locals which is always a good sign. As mentioned in other reports there is only one waitress but she was excellent and the service was superb. She guided us through the menu and encouraged us to try the house specialities which were all good. If we had any criticism the portions were on the large side.

“exceptional food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Thanks in part to tripadvisor, we had another exceptionally great dinner in France that would be equal to any 5 star restaurant in the us at double the cost. Attractive restaurant that presents a delicious amuse bouche and took pride in the delicious appetizer of stuffed cod with veggies, rice and spicy sausage (my description is not doing it justice) and dinners of tender lamb and a steamed fish, vegetables & rice that was served with a gentle butter lemon sauce. This small restaurant is innovative and has a high standard of quality and service.

“Vive Le Croc Loup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Following the advice of many previous Trip Advisor reviewers we opted for the Croc Loup on a recent visit to Bordeaux and to all of those who recommended it ..thank you it was a was a wonderful experience living up to all our expectations. The food was superb, the service was excellent, the sole waitress did a great job in looking after us and her relaxed manner and easy way added to a really pleasurable experience. The foie grains starter was delicious, as was the squid salad, the duck in a peach sauce heavenly and perfectly done as requested(medium) .and the stuffed chicken leg divine - my only difficulty was with desert, red berries in a Rose syrup....I could barely finish it I was so sated after the starter and main......the wine list was less expansive than in other eateries we've visited but nonetheless vert satisfying..definitely visit if you're in Bordeaux

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

An honest, good quality restaurant that provides high class food at a reasonable price. It is a down to earth experience, not ostentatious, but relies on the food to impress you.
There is only one waitress, so you will need to be patient; but she works very hard, is polite, multi lingual and never forgot who had ordered what dish....
I took the old man there for his 80th, and chose the right place, Cheers Croc Loup.
