Lovely restaurant with seating outside. Very good choice of items on tech menu and good wine list. The magret de canard was magnificent. Thank you.

On the main road between Bordeaux and the north of the Médoc, we've recently stopped twice for lunch. The basic lunch menu is between 15€ and 18€ with many other possibilities on offer. The staff are friendly, with a keen eye for detail, and the food is excellent. In summer there is plenty of room on the shaded terrace though,... More

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I discovered belatedly that the Medoc wineries are closed 12-2 for lunch, and since we were hungry, we randomly entered the nearest cafe. We were very pleasantly surprised! It was quite crowded, but there was 1 table available. We appeared to be the only foreigners, a good sign. We each opted for... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hosts when we rented a property in Listrac for 2 weeks. We ended up eating here three times throughout our stay! The staff in the restaurant were delightful,, they spoke little English and we have little French but they appreciated our efforts and we were able to order beautiful meals each visit... More

A excellent restaurant. From the moment we arrived we loved it. The decor is lovely with nicely set out tables. The welcome from the staff was fantastic, and really made us feel welcome. We sat in the courtyard & had cocktails before going inside for our meal. The menu has something for everyone, and the food was gorgeous. Although we... More

This place has everything what you would excpect from a great restaurant: a very warm welcome, excellent food (and wine, of course), friendly personnel. Non-meat eaters (as myself) will find a few alternatives (fish dishes), but the menu is really designed for carnivores (my friends loved it). The place is nicely decorated, but I found the atmosphere slightly too loud... More

Went here with my family and we found it a bit hit and miss. Most of the dishes were quite good but there were some disasters including a duck breast which was so burned that it was like a hard piece of charcoal and a bowl of mussels which were cold. Service was very slow on the night and needed... More

A capacious menu with a good wine list - menu both in French and English. Outside and inside seating in a pleasant location in the village. Parking immediately outside. The waiter was polite and professional and the decor was neutral and relaxing. We both had steaks - the ribeye steak was especially good. There's a kid's menu as well. For... More

One of the Margaux wineries recommended this venue, as the chef came from Cafe Lavinal--and was well-known. The resto has a brasserie feel, less formal than many in the area--but features exceptionally fresh food (the beef/tartar/foie gras!) at reasonable prices. The wine offerings were carefully chosen and very well-priced. The service was competent and gracious. A must-visit place when in... More

We stopped in for lunch whilst visiting the wine region. We were greeted with a very friendly reception. Staff were great! We had the set menu which included soup or salad, main and dessert for 16.50€. They have a fabulous wine selection. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere set in an older building. Definitely stop here for a coffee or... More
