“A real treat”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We first visited C'Yush over a year ago and have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to return which we did last weekend.
The restaurant is unchanged with just a handful of tables nicely spaced under the stone vaulted ceiling, a lovely room. The chef was on view taking complete control over everything that left his kitchen, indeed there were no other kitchen staff and just one woman working the floor.
Service was not fast but this is food that has been created for you to take your time over to really appreciate the wonderful flavours.
Most guests seemed to be enjoying the set menu which at 33 euros is really good value, we went for the a la carte menu but this only had a couple of choices and between us we tried just about everything, all of it was first class and still not wildly expensive even with aperitifs, wine and dessert wine.
I really can't recommend this place highly enough, not just for it's food but the approach of the chef and the feeling you get of being looked after and valued as customers.

“Fantastic gastronomic experience.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Located off the beaten path. Small restaurant in heritage building with gothic barrel-vaulted ceiling. Open kitchen where you see the celebrated Chef Pierrick Celibert working. Inspired experimental modern cuisine - like an art form. Small but creative menu. We ate here on a Thursday and the place was full. Booking a couple of days ahead is necessary.
My wife had the menu. Les Courges de la famille sournac á eysines. Four types of pumpkin in soup, ragout and fracases. Excellent. L'agneau de "Mr. camper" confit ā l'helichrysum du Jardin des dentures, cremux de panis et girolles. Lamb with purée of parsnip and mushrooms. Excellent. Desert, Le raisin dans tous etaps. Grapes and raisins of different types in a compote, reduction and paste. Exceptional.
From the carte: noix de St.Jaquex grillè es au sernent, nashi, main, de bouddha, ficoide glacicle. Scallops flash seared with herbs, beet strands and fruit cavair. Main: Pigeonneau de "Marie leguen" en basse temperature á l'ail rose de lautrec fumé, cullsses confites. This is the signature dish of the house. Whole pigeon cooked in a a low temperature of 70 degrees for over two hours, blackened momentarily on the skillet and served as fillets with mushrooms, and potatoes heavenly.
For desert: Le chocolat blanc- white chocolate mousse, creme brûlée, chocolate butter. Good not great.
House wine was a bordeaux Gran Cru 2010 - disappointing.
This restaurant is not for everyone. It serves a refreshingly different new cuisine that will reveal tastes your palette has never experienced. Go here, but only for the food. NOT a place for celebration or ambience.

“A superb meal in a room of great beauty and historic portent.”
Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

A good meal must have several contributing factors.
Good company, surrounds, atmosphere, service, menu and above all a great chef.
This night had it all!
From the first greeting (we were 20 mintes early due to a prior upheaval at our??? hotel) we were invited in ans seated until the staff could accommodate us.
This is restaurant offering nouvelle cusine, in the manner and quality expected.
3 courses of a set price menu did not offer insight to the many tasty 'appertisers' offered to supplement the listed fare.
Every piece of food was cooked to perfection and presented artistically. This restaurant differed to other supposed nouvelle cusine establishments we have had the misfortune to select over the years, in that the food was delicios and not just an offset to a large and fairly vacant, white plate.
I wont go into details of the food as menu's change and tastes differ.
I totally confident that any patron selecting C'Yusha will come away delighted in all aspects of a truly great dining experience. If there is a better or more knowledgable and professional hostess in France - I'd be most surprised.

“Perhaps it was the change of menu”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We thought this would be the experience to write home about, and unfortunately it was just average. The set menu had just changed that night and perhaps it need a little adjustment. Our first course was an artichoke foam with some sprouts and foie gras, beautifully garnished, lovely to look at but had little flavor. The unfortunate dish was the sturgeon, which was so strong, and fishy, but perhaps that is the way it is in the area. Dessert was truly the highlight, creative, beautiful and flavorful. Our server was attentive and spoke English well. Service was not slow, just about right. Our bill was about $65 pp with wine. The interior of the restaurant is vaulted with arches, just lovely and welcoming. Perhaps the next menu will be a hit, or consider ordering from the a la carte selections. I would not rush back.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Our meal was absolutely delicious. It was just the chef with one server on the night we visited, so the service was a little slow. We would absolutely return. We had the salmon 6 ways as an appetizer and also the white asparagus 5 ways. The food was very creative with a lot of attention to detail. It was very reasonably priced for the quality of the meal with a nice wine selection.
Located in the old town of Bordeaux, we found this restaurant on trip advisor and it was favorite dinners on our trip.
