French with a capital F, serving brasserie food with a few twists but priced to compete with neighbours and undeniable value.
Intimate premises, original art on the walls and elegant staff all combined to ecourage a spur of the moment decision. Busy service of groups and couples helped the atmosphere.
Two menu choices, one circa 14 euro and one 20 almost indistinguishable, we opted for one of each.
Aubergine and parmesan starter underwhelming, little trace of cheese and too much crunchy pepper, a coddled egg special interesting rather than memorable.
Mains of pork and lamb solid comfort food with typical French sauces, quality chips and a decent vegetable medley.
Desserts of nutty creme brulee and panna cotta with raspberry coulis and crushed biscuits hit the spot.
Service unflustered and efficient, decent but limited local wine list. Pleasantly surprised by final tally after three courses each plus wine from towards the top end of the list. Not a stunningly memorable meal but no complaints.

Baked Camembert, perfect Duck confit, superb tart tatin, quietly efficient and friendly service this is what eating out in France is all about. €70 for 3 courses with wine, unbeatable value!

Simple, unpretentious restaurant offering good food at reasonable prices. Range of choice was good. Service was excellent and very helpful. Wine not as cheap as elsewhere, but not too pricey. Ambiance and location were very pleasant.

Ate here one night, can't say that the food was that good, in fact it was very average, the tarte tatin not that good and the service a little hit and miss

Visited this establishment one might wandering around the backstreets of Bordeaux. It is quite small, only as wide as the double doors at the front and extends the full length of the building. It offers a reasonable a la carte menus, as well as several fixed price options. €13 or €20 for 3 courses. The wine list is small and not of a high standard. The service was prompt, the food was fresh and well cooked, except the complimentary bread which was stale. The restaurant was full by the time I left and they were turning people away.
