I am once again indebted to Trip Advisor for uncovering this little gem. My girlfriend and I were only in Bordeaux for one night and had no dinner plans; this place sounded great from the reviews so we booked what must have been the last table available.
She had scallops and a lamb dish but, wanting to be a bit more adventurous, I went for snails and pigs trotters. The snails were not doused in garlic as is often the case but rather served in a star anise-based, bright green sauce and puff pastry. Looked odd, tasted delicious. I had not tried trotters before but both members of staff aporoved of my choice and I was indeed not disappointed. It was one of the best-tasting dishes ever.
The outside seating area - across the (narrow) street from the main building and bordering a church - was particularly nice as the light faded.
Staff were helpful and attentive throughout, explaining how dishes were served (though we probably didn't get as much attention as our french diners - this was not a problem) and recommending wine, all the whike speaking good english. Total spend was less than 80 euros, including coffee mains are around 20 and starters around 10.
You must eat here!
