We found this place via TripAdvisor. We found a cosy, welcoming place. The dinner was excellent. The wine which was recommended to our dishes were excellent as well. Certainly a place, whenever we are in the region, we will visit again.

Thank Strobelina

Lovely restaurant with seating outside. Very good choice of items on tech menu and good wine list. The magret de canard was magnificent. Thank you.

On the main road between Bordeaux and the north of the Médoc, we've recently stopped twice for lunch. The basic lunch menu is between 15€ and 18€ with many other possibilities on offer. The staff are friendly, with a keen eye for detail, and the food is excellent. In summer there is plenty of room on the shaded terrace though, if it is really hot, it may be cooler to eat indoors. Worth reserving.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I discovered belatedly that the Medoc wineries are closed 12-2 for lunch, and since we were hungry, we randomly entered the nearest cafe.

We were very pleasantly surprised! It was quite crowded, but there was 1 table available. We appeared to be the only foreigners, a good sign. We each opted for a different plat du jour - pork for me, and chicken for her. Both were superb. And the local house wine was excellent. Service was unhurried, smiling and thorough. And the decor was bright and cheerful. It put us in a great mood for a tasting visit to Chateau Baudan (see my review).

2 thumbs up!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hosts when we rented a property in Listrac for 2 weeks. We ended up eating here three times throughout our stay! The staff in the restaurant were delightful,, they spoke little English and we have little French but they appreciated our efforts and we were able to order beautiful meals each visit using a combination of pidgin French, gesticulations and a number system for how steaks were to be cooked! The lest lunch menu is excellent value with nothing scrimped in terms of quality, quantity or standard of service. From the a la carte menu, ourselves and our 3 teenage children sampled steaks, chorizo risotto and duck, amongst other things . The duck dish (with a choice of sauces) was the best I have ever eaten. We also were recommended a delicious and reasonably - priced local wine (again, even with little common language!) which we stuck to on each visit. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. If you are in the region, please make time to visit - you most certainly will not be disappointed!
