We were struggling to find someone seating at 8 and kind of stumbled in to Croc Loup. They were gracious enough to find us a table without a reservation on a Friday night. The tables filled up and the couple next to us commented that it was usually difficult to get in. The appetizer was a light mousse with some... More

This is hands down one of the top restaurants in Bordeaux. Incredible experience and the woman that runs the place is extremely friendly. I walked in there with one of my friends, both in our mid 20s and we were welcomed with a big smile like we were any of the other diners there in their 60s dressed to the... More

We made a dinner reservation for a Saturday in late May. We had the cuttlefish ravioli appetizer, duck breast as our mains, and the chocolate mousse Napolean. The ravioli was very delicious while the duck breast was a bit dry. The chocolate mousse was the highlight of the meal - perfection! A must for any chocolate lover. If the food... More

We arrived in Bordeaux late Saturday afternoon so struggled to find somewhere to reserve for dinner. We tried a few restaurants and fortunately this one was not booked out. The restaurant, set down a side street off the main shopping street, is cosy and only seats around 24 people. There was only one waitress - who did a very good... More

Just had a fantastic meal here tonight. Lovely small restaurant full of local patrons. We have eaten in a couple of Brasseries in Bordeaux that were ok but this meal was different class for virtually the same money. Four excellent courses for €32, unbeatable value and skillful cooking. Cannot reccomend highly enough, many thanks for an unforgettable meal.

After being in France for a month; and trying a lot of restaurants- we think this has been the best meal that we have had! We only ordered entree and main; but it was so good especially my entree of ravioli definitely the Best Ravioli I have ever eaten. Definitely a must !

I ate here two years ago with a group of guys and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This may in part have been due to beer goggles. I returned to Bordeaux with my wife and wished to share the experience with her. We arrived at 19:30 and were first in. We chose a table at the window and settled in to... More

Well worth a visit. Lovely cosy setting of just 11 tables. We were here on a Tuesday so no booking required. The weekends would require booking. Friendly wait staff delicious food 10 out of 10!

Three generations of Joneses had lunch here ahead of the Welsh match last Saturday. What a feast for the taste buds and incredible value too. Every dish was full of flavour and beautifully presented. I enjoyed the prawn salad, the chicken chasseur and the delicious cherry clafoutis. Puddings especially got the thumbs up from all of us. Other Welsh supporters... More
