“Traditional french fare in funny atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2011

Contrary to many "stiff" Bordeaux restaurants, this one has a funny decoration, loud 80ties music and young crowd. The interior is so kitchy and funny it makes the place a sightseeing destination on its own. The food is down-to-earth french fare, copious and delicious. I had fois gras and cassoulet, the sausage in the cassoulet was divine! The dessert though (chocolate mousse) was a bit boring, but again, I'm not a dessert person.
The service was swift and efficient, if a bit indifferent. But hey, I'm here for the food and not for a small talk with waiters!

“Bad customer service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2010

I came here with a large group of people and another few times with a friend. The 1st 3 times there was great, no problem with just one person. However the last time in June 2010, the customer service was really bad.

I had onion soup which was nice. I had just an average salad for dinner (vegetarian) so they did a cheese selection. It was nice and tasty and then dessert I did not like so much (normally dessert is nice...but here I was not a big fan off).

Anyway the dinner was alright, but I had problems with them charging me twice for my veggie meal etc and the people working there were really rude which ruined my night and put me off going there again. Its a shame, as it is actually ok besides that.

“Pleasant, cheerful atmosphere, good VFM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2009

Situated in a wonderful narrow street full of restaurants all competing for your custom, the food is great value at 12.98euros for a 3 course set meal and a nice selection of house reds. Quirky decor with straw on the floor but busy and very popular with the French. Definitely please we went.
