Outstanding value two and three-course dinner deals, with a very high quality of food and excellent service. This place gets very busy though, so if you don't have a reservation it's best to turn up as they open at 8pm, as we luckily did. The chips (French fries) here are probably the best I have eaten in my entire life!

Myself and my boyfriend came here during our visit to Bordeaux after reading about the restaurant on Tripadvisor. We were lucky to get a last minute reservation. The restaurant was full, mainly with French people which is always a good sign!

The food was five star stuff; I had a cherry compote with goats cheese mousse for starters followed by rabbit with wild mushrooms and a melt-in-the-mouth hot chocolate pudding. Everything was fabulous and the menu changes daily.

The waitresses had very little English but did their best to translate a few words we didn't understand and were kind and helpful.

At €19 for three courses AND a glass of wine it was a steal!

We will be recommending this authentic brasserie to all of our friends visiting Bordeaux!

This was very close to our apartment and made a perfect night even better. Our French is dodgy, but the staff were very helpful. The food was great and really well presented. The service was steady, which was perfect for us. The bill was a total surprise ... Very affordable indeed. We were thrilled with our evening.

We consulted tripadvisor for moderately priced restaurants thru out our trip. The food here was beautifully presented, innovative and delicious. Do not miss out on this kitchen!

Absolutely superb. Michelin quality food at an outstanding price (19 eur for three courses and a glass of wine!). Beautiful modern atmosphere.

Service was prompt, but not friendly.
