Myself and a friend had a really lovely night in Dax. The staff were extremely pleasant. While we did receive a dish which was not up to standard, there was absolutely no problem with them replacing it without any fuss. The lemon tart was fabulous, would definately go back.

We were very pleased with the food and service. Executed to a high standard and delivered in a competent and invisible (in the best sense) way. We could not find fault. Very good. Good wine list but some of the wines (these wines are 20% reduced page) seemed a bit of a con. Cantemerle05 for 120 euros, this is close to a 400% markup on the retail price!

I've been here a few times before and always had a great meal. The service is great and the food is fab. We went for the upstairs bar this time and had the tapas style menus. The prawns were of special note. You do need to order quite a few plates if your hungry so it can get expensive. But it's worth it I think. We had about 6 plates between us and 2 bread baskets. The food part came to approx 50 quid. But definitely worth it. Well done dax keep up the good work. Looking forward to my next visit

Had an excellent meal in Dax two weeks ago. On our wish list for months. Stayed with the set menu and paid the supplements (€3 on starters and €3 on mains). Menu was circa €36 which was good considering the quality. A complimentary taster of red onion soup was followed by sauteed prawns, lamb and chocolate moouse. Coffees and petit fours included. Service was really attentive , informed and friendly. Excellent wine list. A little too pricy but overall good. Finished our last bottle upstairs in the very cool wine bar. Would return in a heartbeat!

I've been to Dax several times often over the years but always just for business lunches. And they do that pretty well with quality food and efficient service albeit at relatively high prices. But I must admit that I don't quite understand why it garners such rave reviews or has such a vaunted reputation. To be fair, there's nothing in particular that I could criticize but I've just never found anything either that was especially notable (about the food or the ambiance) to make me want to go back for an evening meal.
