We went for a meal here on our last night in Bordeaux. We’d booked in advance, ( need to phone, no obvious online booking arrangement) and got a table looking out over the river. Restaurant was reasonably busy for a Wednesday night, and there was a function in the adjacent conservatory.
Web site suggests a €39 3 course meal, but no offer of that when the menus arrived, so brace yourself for the a la Carte prices. Starters are quite pricey.
We decided to skip a starter, but got talked into having a plate of Spanish charcuterie, (€19.95 for 2) which was very tasty. I had the fillet of beef as a main, my wife had fillet of veal. The beef was done as requested “a point”, with a sauce to die for. Excellent potatoes and carrot purée as well. If I was being picky, then I’ve had slightly better bits of beef, but I live in Aberdeenshire, so perhaps spoiled by local Aberdeen Angus produce. My wife’s veal was very enjoyable as well. We decided to have cheese to follow, which was well presented, with an interesting range of cheeses. Decent wine sold by the glass.
Again upsold at the end of the meal to have a cognac and an Armagnac, both very good but obviously added to the total bill. Meanwhile the function were still waiting for their main course.....
The young lad serving was very personable, and went off to find out what the difference was between cognac was for us. But he’d obviously been well schooled in upselling, so if you are on a budget, then watch for this.
Communal loos, as with a lot places in France, my wife wasn’t that impressed with them! Probably due to the hygiene of the other guests.
Overall though, a lovely evening, probably the best we’d had in Bordeaux at a reasonable cost.
