“best value for money”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Incredible food and service and of course unique view of Bordeaux. An excellent meal for the price at lunchtime and a must for tourists and residents alike.

“Excellent place for non-Bordelais”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

I spend a week per month in Bordeaux and when I have clients, I bring them here. The view is probably the best in Bordeaux, the wine list is nice, the staff knows how to deal with English-speaking clients.
I really love having a drink on the terrasse before diner in summer.
I have been there 20 times and I always had great moments.

“Superb location in Central Bordeaux”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Situated above the river and opposite the centre of historic Bordeaux the views are tranquil and interesting. Parking is easy and the restaurant is spacious and first class in every way. English speaking, if that is important, but the cuisine is French and exceptionally good and there is a Menu de Jour which is three courses for €16 at lunchtime. A very good choice of dishes. Everything is of a high standard and I unhesitatingly recommend it.

“Not as good as I'd heard it was”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

I really wanted to love this place. The setting is superb, with wonderful views across the river to Bordeaux and an emphasis on fresh seafood. But the food just wasn't as good as I'd hoped. Very nice but nothing special. May be we didn't choose the best options as the place was packed with French people so it must be good. The starters were better than the mains which were, to be honest, quite dull, though well cooked (we tried cod, sea bass, langoustines and scallops). On the plus side, the service was good, the wine (a white from Pessac Leognan, was excellent, and we saw a family of otters in the river.
