This restaurant is an absolute gem, I am so pleased we made the effort to find it based on these reviews. The gorgeous decor, laid back service & absolutely perfect food make this the best restaurant we have ever eaten at in France. Cannot recommend enough. The fish was cooked to perfection, the stew was divine & the tarte tatin... More

My husband and I are here last weekend and were totally charmed. The street is full of restaurants and so was very lively on the sidewalk. The food was perfection. My husband's salad with hot goat cheese wrapped in puff pastry was divine. My tiny mussels in butter and garlic were delicious. We both ordered a very healthy fish cooked... More

This unassuming restaurant is an absolute glittering gem of a restaurant. The dishes look pretty simple on the menu, but are so complex in the mouth, and so so so tasty that I guarantee you will want to come back as soon as you are hungry again. I don't think I have ever eaten food cooked by somebody who understands... More

We went here on our first evening in Bordeaux and the food the rest of the week paled in comparison. The difference was so great that we tried to go back here our last night (but they were booked up; tragedy!) From the very beginning, our entree and wine were fantastic. Our main dishes were a bit on the large... More

First time I went there, it was 20 years ago. I come back two or three times every year, and it is still as good. Hearthy food, generous portions. "En sauce" style : you should go there on a cold winter night... Service can be on the slow side, so be sure to be there early.

I was there with my gf at the beginning of August. We booked a table and we got there early enough to pick a table inside, a good idea because it soon started to shower. The inside is really warm and cozy. The meal was one of the best meals I have ever had in France during this trip. The... More

At the risk of jeopardizing future chances to get into Le Plat a Oreilles, I must wholeheartedly recommend their excellent cooking and service. The place is tiny, so I have no idea how we were able to book at table for 2 for Saturday the very same morning. But we did, and so I'm glad we got to try their... More

This is a very popular, but small french restaurant, just off one of the squares in the old part of Bordeaux, Booking recommended. The food was well cooked with good ingredients -- The pork in cider as mentioned in other reviews was generous and very good. Bring a good appetite as the home made profiteroles is a large portion --... More

Great french cuisine set in a very busy street just off of the Place St Michel. Lots of hustle and bustle around and good atmosphere. Food was excellent. Tried to go back a second time but sadly they were fully booked. Would definitely recommend.

We selected this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews, and were so glad that we had made reservations (as recommended by some reviewers). The restaurant is small, charming and seems very popular with locals. The place was filled up for dinner and people were being turned away. Also it is a leisurely dinner and they do not rush you at... More
