Our friend from CA was visiting and one day around lunch time, we found ourselves in front of La Belle Epoque. The menu on the carte looked interesting and had something for everyone's taste, so in we went. Seated at a corner table, our choice was the only mistake, It was a bit windy and there was no protection in the area we picked. The lunch was good, we enjoyed the limited wine list, and continues our tour of the city.

We had an excellent dinner in this lovely restaurant near the waterfront. It has a very well decorated interior that gives you the feelings of a step back in time.

The entrees of duck gizzards salad and red mullet tart were really unusual for first timer but very tasty and well cooked with a perfect texture. The same applies to the main courses of Veal and Grilled Salmon. Price wise at 24 euros per person for the entree + plate was excellent values.

Service was good though little english was spoken but we managed to get by in understanding the menu offered!

We ate dinner here at the recommendation of the tourist bureau on Bastille Day. It was exceptionally busy due to the impending fireworks right in front of the restaurant and because of this they were only serving "a la carte" which pushed the price up. Nevertheless the food was good although the service was rushed. Perhaps on a different night it may have been better.

The beautiful tiled interior was what I was warned to note and indeed it is splendid, but the friendly attentive but not intrusive staff and the delicious food by the river make this a great dining choice in Bordeaux. If you order the oysters to start you'll also get s delicious ball of pork and veal to accompany it - yes it works! The main course pigeon was served with polenta but as I don't like this they gave me off menu potatoes instead - thanks!

The prix fixe menu offered three courses, each worse than the next.

The first course was a repulsively fatty pâté contained in a rock hard macaroon. The dinner went downhill from there. Scallops arrived dreadfully overlooked in a salty sauce the consistency of glue. Finally, the dessert was supposed to be a panna cotta had more gelatin than cream. It could have been used as a hand ball!

All of this was delivered by slow and inattentive waiters.

Go at your own risk.
