“Deserves the starred rating!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The service was impeccable with the exception of a small glitch when offered the bread. The food was exquisite and the dishes were very well presented. Two notes to take into consideration: 1) the setting is a bit simplistic like the rest of the hotel interior, and 2) the price tag is commensurate with the starred status of the restaurant

“Nice setting and great food”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

Another must stop place in the Bordeaux area. The hotel is in the middle of a vineyard and the restaurant is full of paintings. The food is excellent and the wine list impressive. By the middle of the menu decouverte we were stuffed but the fantastic looking and beautifully composed dishes kept us going. Thanks for makin it a great night.

“Wonderful lunch”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We ate here 7 years ago for dinner and decided to have lunch while wine tasting this week. As others have said the staff went out of their way assist, speaking to us in both English and French. The starter of foie gras with figs was interesting and beautifully presented like a wheel, followed by sea bass for my husband and duck for me. The winter vegetables were not that exciting but we couldn't fault them. Delightful desert of chocolate tart filled with milk chocolate and a divine peanut caramel crisp. Good wine from the Lynch Bages stable.

It is what I would expect from a two star michelin restaurant.

“Too many courses to finish”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Brought desert to the room. Some of the most beautiful food I have ever had. 9 plus courses including 3 desert courses.

Wine list is to die for and when the check comes, you almost do.

“A memorable meal, experience of a lifetime”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

This was one of the meals I will treasure in my life. Quite an experience. I had the 9 courses meal, which was a lot, even being small dishes. And yet they kept bringing extras in between, chief's inventions, then more cheese and chocolate in the end. The service is all you could expect from a 2 michelin stars: formal, attentive, but also very well informed and pleasant, nice.
