Very friendly staff with good English. The main course as well as the dessert were very tasty. Homemade chips are delicious. Prices are reasonable. We will definitely come back before we leave Bordeaux.

Staying in the Charente, we drove into Bordeaux late in the afternoon, with the intention of eating a meal, then seeing the city light up, as night fell. Despite its rather American-sounding name, the menu was definitely French in character - my wife had a well-presented and tasty croquet monsieur whilst I had a platter of charcuterie. Being high summer,... More

Just next door to the Hotel Continental and around the corner from Rue L'intendance in the centre of Bordeaux. Lunch and dinner 'plat du jour' and 'soir' suggestions change ever day but there's always a selection of house salad specialities to choose from. Plenty of tables outside if the weathers fine and it's much bigger than you imagine inside. Very... More

Right next door to the hotel we stayed in we tried it on our second night. Very modern and smart inside. Food was excellent and all dishes we saw come out looked good.

We wanted something interesting and enjoyable for an inexpensive lunch stop and this was just right. No frills or fuss just good food and service at a reasonable price. 3 of us chose the duck parmentier but it was not properly heated through.

We were staying in the Continental Hotel next door and were tired on arrival so we decided to eat here. We both had duck confit and it was obvious that this had come direct from the freezer but it was edible. The service was quite good.

Good location and staff. The home made Creme brûlée is great. Burgers are good as well. Well worth eating here.
