Friendly place with a good sense of humour which you need when you only serve balls as a main course. Vegetarian balls are an option as well as chicken, lamb or beef meat balls in a variety of sauces or burrito style. Reasonably priced 16.5...More

We had a good experience here and the food was better than I had expected. The chicken balls I had were a tad dry, but overall delicious. Would recommend if you're looking to try something different from a traditional meal!

Despite its decent (not great) "boulettes", the waiter was impolite. He made a neverending joke - every time he came to our table - about my complaint that the tabasco sauce was old and brown and not fresh and red.

We have been there for dinner and the food was nothing special and the service was terrible. I don't recommend it.

Encouraged by the references to vegetarian meatballs in reviews on Trip Advisor, I visited it this evening, only to find that they had run out of them (not their fault, I arrived at 9 o’clock). The manager couldn’t have been more helpful, giving me a...More

We had a great time. Jenny and her team are doing a fantastic job cooking and hosting. The good reviews speak for themselves. Definitely worth a visit and try the burger balls as well as the chocolate cake for desert, to die for!

No VEGAN Food, Vegetarian OK. Au BDV is a small pub where you can eat meatballs and veggie balls. Burger balls, Classic balls, Salad Balls or Taco balls with home made sauces. They also provide a lot of french wines at very good rates ! Local beers (tap & bottles). RESERVATION HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
