“super restaurant - really good”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

the restaurant is very nice , good services and excellent French food, I saw some sea food that looks really good but I choose some standard French entrecote, it was a dream so good, really with that an excellent French wine Pessac Leognan and my evening was the best.

“Old style French Bistro”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

An old style Bistro of a style which is fast disappearing in France. Over 200,000 30 years ago, and now only about 40,000.
Current economic conditions (and government attitude to small business) will mean these numbers will decline even further over the next 3-4 years.
Elegant interior (if tables are a bit close) but large traditional menu and good wine selection.
My stuffed piquillos entree and veal liver were good and my colleague said his oysters and duck were fine, so menu is not challenging from a "haut cuisine" perspective, but everything was fresh and cooked the way it should be.
Service started off well but faltered a bit as it got busier over the lunch period.
Parking is on the street around a busy corner, so not very convenient.
Worthwhile considering a visit if you are in the area (not too far from the airport) but not different enough to warrant a special visit, and there are better Bistro/Brasserie examples in and around Bordeaux city.

“Very rude”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Restaurant looks nice but the staff is just very very rude, it spoiled our lunch completely. Walking in on the right hand-side you can see the kitchen and the grill, it looked interesting but in the end overall experience was very average.
