We had dinner a couple of times several years and were happy. The interior is lovely plus there is outdoor seating. We decided to gave lunch here today. Good lunch menu. It was fairly busy when we arrived but quickly got even busier. Nevertheless, our food arrived promptly. Both mains were very good. Service was a bit detached but professional.... More

Interesting architecture. Toilets not accessible for disabled people (into basement by stairs) For lunch, It’s recommending to arrive before 13h30 if you want to have a table. The « daly » menu doesn't change often.

Wow! One of our best meals in our first two weeks in France. Also loved the setting... oudoor terrace along the boulevard and walkway that border the Garonne river. Great service, professionally friendly and effective. Would definitely return. If you go snd eat outside, havet a peak at the restaurant interior - it's stunning!

This restaurant had been recommended as the place to eat in Bordeaux in an English speaking magazine about France. Having looked at the photos and the menus on-line we decided to go for dinner. Smaller than we thought, and the inside did not match up to the photos. We ate outside. Although on the Quays, it does not give a... More

The setting attracts diners who can only be disappointed by the ordinary food prepared and served with little care. In no way good value.

We had a different dinner plan for this night of our arrival, but the brasserie we were planning to eat at was occupied by the Irish and Welsh soccer fans so we walked around the corner to the lovely Le Belle Epoque. The restaurant is in a beautiful space with blue tile, dark wood, and interesting lighting. Service is friendly... More

By chance walking along the quai we decided upon lunch at this little restaurant. We chose to sit outside on a delightfully warm day. We started with a Gesiers de canard dish which was the best I have eaten, served in a light vol au vant, with salad. Superb. He had foie de veau (calves liver) au framboise which was... More

Booked lunch here on the basis of the web site menus and photographs together with some of the comments/reviews online. we were a party of 4. The luncheon menu appeared to be OK and we ordered together with a bottle of wine. My first course of mackerel salad was somewhat insipid. My companions all ordered what tuned out to be... More
