We made a reservation for 9 o'clock. We were seated promptly but we were not even given menus until about 20 minutes after and the waitress didn't take our orders until 45 minutes after we had sat down. The food took forever to get to us but it was worth the wait. Amazing meal--I would have given five stars had... More

Just popped in here on the off chance. Wow! Lovely cuisine certainly of a Michelin star standard. Lovely staff. Had a nice chat with one of the chefs. It's owned by 2 chefs who have both worked in high class establishments and it showed. Lovely airy restaurant with open plan kitchen. No crashing of pans, just professional competence. Short wine...

Restaurant Le M is tucked down a small side street in Bordeaux, as with many great restaurants this is a hidden gem. The restaurant is very comfortable inside, open plan kitchen, with good unobtrusive service. The food is modern and well presented with flavours and textures to match. The 2 chef owners are going to be and already are a... More

Like many people, I tend to go to the same place when in the neighbourhood. But something about this place intrigued me, so stopped for lunch. I have now enjoyed a dinner there as well. The entrance kind of misleads in that it looks like a bar not a restaurant. Once past that, it is a beautifully decorated place, lots... More

Our visit to Le M de Monbadon surpassed all our expectations. Each and every course we were served was absolutely exquisite, betraying the mastery of the chefs who run this restaurant, and who made us feel we were being offered their greatest masterpiece each time. We cannot remember having any other culinary experience like it.

The staff here are truly what made the experience. Personally, I am not into the molecular gastronomy/gold leaf/fancy plating thing, but the food was tasty, if a bit fussy. However, the two waitresses were so delightful - recommending the PERFECT wines (a graves superior to go with the foie gras that was a culinary highlight of my life!) and generally... More

We dined here with friends upon recommendations from other TripAdvisor users. It was a good restaurant with a choice of a fixed price or individual entrees. We found the food and service to be good. If you are looking for a good (not gourmet) restaurant, I would put this one on your list.

This place completely surprised me..... Arrived with my boyfriend to enjoy a small meal, left several hours later, feeling complete. What a spectacular place... The chefs (two of them), Arno and David created a delicious meal, weaving their way, course through course, each turn a grander surprise than the last.... We had cure fish with citrus, salmon roe and artichoke... More

We visited the restaurant on a Saturday evening during a whistle stop weekend in Bordeaux. We arrived with no idea of the restaurant having booked on line but i can confidently say it was one of the best meals I've ever had. It is up there with Heston Blumenthals Dinner in Knightsbridge. The food was exceptional, prepared in an open... More
