We are staying at a lovely upscale lodging while visiting bordeaux for the (late) harvest. So when the owners recommended this restaurant for our only dinner while here, we just went with it. We looked up other reviews (and looked at some higher rated restaurants) and decided it was an easy option after a full day of tasting at the chateaux. The food was decent bistro food (although overpriced) and not spectacular. But the mistake they made was seating us near their open fireplace rotisserie, where we could watch food being roasted. Or NOT. It was a big fake. We ordered appetizers (decent not great) a nice bordeaux and roasted entrees. But all the roasting is apparently done in the oven. We watched the same poor pathetic chicken (was it fake???) roast over- - and over - and over. It was never served (thankfully). There was no spit roasting going on here as indicated on the menu, just a giant facade. The French fries were brought from the kitchen deep fryer, but plated by the fireside. The fire was certainly real. And every so often the antique weights were turned again, implying this was authentic. But it is not. The service was ok, but when we asked specifically for one cheese course and were told it was split for us to share -then charged for two - the tourist rip off was complete.
Please, anyone that likes authentic food and is willing to pay for it, don't get ripped off here.
