Have visited Dax 3 or 4 times each year since it opened 10 years or so ago. My visits have been as a couple, with family and with friends. The food has been consistently good and the service always attentive and never overbearing

I have been here twice, once with my boyfriend for my birthday and another time with friends for a tasting menu and I have to say I just feel like coming back. The restaurant itself is beautiful, modern decoration, outstanding service and amazing food. In both time it exceed my expectations. I definitely recommend this place.

We went for a business dinner on a set menu. However there was plenty of choice. Fish was exceptional and the meats were also very good. Service was very good - The staff were very accommodating to some extraordinary requests we had. The basement setting means it's very compartmentalised.

All you can say after an experience in this beautiful establishment is thank you. We had a real culinary experience with a dash of hospitality. As a chef myself I would highly recommend here for a romantic and relaxing lunch or evening meal.
