“Great steak & frites!”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Just off a central square, Place Gambetta, you have this modern, buzzing bistro with a very nice set menu: steak, duck or salmon with delicious sauce and generous chips, and a salad starter for a very good price. Yummy and convenient!

“Trendy, young, affordable, fun”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

For a good meal at a great price with young clientele because they offer free champagne on certain nights, limited choice of wine and food but dishes are very good and great value for money - especially for pricey Bordeaux! Its an affordable 'L'Encrecote' offering good grills of steak or salmon and good salads

“It could be so is/could/ be good”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

This is/was/could be so good, it depends on something, not sure what! Have eaten there several times, at least 10 visits, with friends, business, etc. Inclined to be noisy and crowded, tight sitting space, very much a slick catering operation, not so much a restaurant. But for all that, the food can be nice, the staff are excellent. Worth a try and is reasonably priced

“OK for the very reasonable price”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

Following the advice of the previous reviewer we went to Bistro Regent (rue st remi branch) as L'Entrecote was still closed (date of visit: 3 oct 2011).

Although the steak from the EUR12.90 menu (170g steak + salad + unlimited skinny fries) is not a very tender cut, and the fries are definitely not cooked in duck fat as advertised, it is still very good value for the price. All in all, dinner for 2 pax including a half bottle house red and 1 dessert came up to only EUR40. Very reasonable indeed!

You can specify the doneness of your steak. My advice would be to ask for 1 notch more than what you normally eat e.g. I normally eat my steak med-rare but I found that it was a bit too rare hence making the meat super chewy (or maybe it was just the cut that was chewy).

Restaurant was quite empty when we arrived around 7pm on a monday eve and about half full when we left at 830pm. Crowd was a mix of locals and tourists. Staff speak English and there is an English menu outside the restaurant and on the wall as you enter.

We did keep wondering how much better L'Entrecote (slightly more expensive) would have been though!

“Great Restaurant, Excellent Value!”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

We were due to eat at the L'Entrecote Restaurant today and found it was closed for refurbishment, luckily for us the Tourist Board Office recommended this restaurant which was close by, (they have 3 in the area of Bordeaux) and we had a fantastic lunch for Euro 12.90 (salad, steak & sauce, unlimited crispy fries). Bordeaux house bottle white wine only Euro 12.00 and good value desserts. Friendly staff, excellent service and great locations.
