Booked this for an evening meal, on the recommendation of The Guardian. It was fine dining at its best. Superb creative courses from start to finish, in a warm and relaxing atmosphere, and very reasonably priced.

Best restaurant experience in Bordeaux! Food was outstanding and the staff was very friendly. English was not a problem. We would not hesitate to return! One note - reservations are necessary because the restaurant is very small.
