Description: New gourmet restaurant located in the old Bordeaux, "St Pierre" district. After many years with great chefs (Alain Ducasse, Alain Senderens, Michel Portos), David Grangier and Olivier Rouland wanted to combine their expertise to offer their "cuisine", simple but tasty and seasonal products and flavors have a prominent place. David and Olivier welcome you in a warm atmosphere. The restaurant is open every day except Sunday and Monday for lunch and dinner (open Monday evening from May to September)

Reviewed 28 June 2014

Celebrated my husband's birthday at this place and had an excellent experience. The food was inventive and delightful. The service was impeccable. The place is stylishly decorated yet intimate. I hope to visit again some day.

“An Absolute Gem in the Heart of the Quartier Saint-Pierre, Bordeaux”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

David Grangier and Olivier Rouland have one of the most inventive, delicious and beautiful restaurants in Bordeaux, and we liked it so much, we ate there twice, days apart. Can't go into all the details, but as an example: the seared fois gras with a confit of kiwi and cucumber, ginger sorbet, and a cucumber gelee was so perfect, so delicious, so different, we both enjoyed it both evenings we were there. An amuse bouche, served in a martini glass, was a veloute of avocado with a bit of cream, tiny cubes of Granny Smith apple, spicy radish, cubed local charcuterie, and the secret ingredient was Tobasco sauce. And so it went, through both dinners. Needless to say, in Bordeaux, one has to have the best of Bordeaux wines and they chose the wines for us and they were superb. I also must mention the earnest, knowledgeable young man who was our server. How special he was - he knew everything about the menu and the wines, and he was so friendly and engaged us - in French, which we prefer, we had to leave him an extra tip at the end. We would urge anyone who reads this and who is going to be in Bordeaux to patronize this delightful, beautiful restaurant. You will surely have as enjoyable an evening as we did - both times.

“Excellent food and great friendly service!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We had a wonderful lunch at Le Davoli at Easter time. We were 10 persons so we had decided in advance to all have the Menu Découverte. This menu was full of different tastes, even surprising ones that made our lunch a great gastronomic experience. The service was very friendly and the meal went very swiftly. Everybody among us still talks about the warm foie gras that was so perfectly crisp outside and melting inside. So delicious. We loved Bordeaux and the lunch at Le Davoli just crowned our day. I warmly recommend this place to all friends of great French gastronomy.

“Excellent, four and a half - just misses a five!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

This is almost a five star, just a few details missing. The first amuses bouches, while good, didn't taste like they were made in house, rather mass produced. One dish was a bit bland, but generally, the rest of the dishes were excellent. One of the best veals I've recently eaten, done to perfection. Deserts spectacular. Would definitely counsel a visit, especially as central Bordeaux has a lot of poor quality tourist restaurants, of which this NOT.
