Our third review for this charming establishment. We unashamedly review again our favourite Bordeaux restaurant and cannot understand the lowly number given to it The beautiful vaulted ceiling in the dining room is the perfect setting to enjoy the dishes of this innovative chef. Once again the owner was most welcoming and gave us informative advice before we made our final choices.This is not a "page per course" restaurant, but the chef concentrates on quality dishes rather than quantity. Even the bread is "faites maison". From starter to dessert - fabulous!

The restaurant is really beautiful and cozy. The food is amazing! Try the asparagus and the chocolate fondant!
The service is very good, they speak English and they are very welcoming and polite. We paid 85 euros for 2x three course menus. I think this is definitely a must place to go!

What a perfect evening! I had such a lovely meal at this restaurant. The server was so accommodating and he recommended a perfect meal. The wine was delicious as well. At the end even though I was so full, he brought me a special dessert, which was delicious! I highly recommend this gem! Go and enjoy!

Excellent little place, located near "restaurant row" behind the Place de Bourse. They've been open for 18 months so not as well known as some of the other top-rated restaurants. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. I had the Tataki beef to start and it was incredible - thinly sliced rare beef served in a spicy vinaigrette. The others had fois gras and the goats cheese feuillette to start and weren't disappointed. The mains were equally good. The menu is somewhat limited and all served a la carte. Everything, including the bread, is homemade. Also worth mentioning is the toilet, imported from Japan, with a heated seat! Definitely worth a visit;

Our third visit to this restaurant, and we weren't disappointed. Each course was delicious and full of subtle flavours with a special mention for the starter of Tataki beef - sublime! Welcome is warm and the young owner is always on hand to give advice regarding the wine or menu choices. Will certainly be back.
