Essential to book early...even in Feb! Had the cream ham and truffle pâte 15euros (superb), and the deserts are delicious.

What a terrific little spot. We fell upon it while walking by and made a reservation for the following night. That was fortuitous. They were fully booked and kept turning people away. Charming. Great & friendly service. Terrific food. A great experience.

As a local I would say this is the best Italian food I've tasted in Bordeaux. Bellisima!!! Good variety on the menu and the food is just excellent! Great atmosphere, small restaurant and usually busy. Perfect for a date or groups.

Had salmon tartare with a spinach salad....simple dish but so delicious. The atmosphere was lovely and service professional as with most French restaurants. I would definitely go back.

After several days of gourmand French cuisine, a change was called for and this restaurant came recommended. Boy oh boy did it deliver. If I had to choose one word it would have to be 'honest' - the tables and chairs were an eclectic mixture...More

We stopped by for a lunch impromtu at a late hour (around 2pm) at the restaurant across the epicerie/take away. Tiny terrace and cosy inside with high ceilings and wood combined with an antique flair probably inspired by the nearby (antique and artsy) shops. The...More
