We wandered the square in which this restaurant is situated. Choices between French, North African and this one. We picked this one...I fancied a tapas. And ordered the gambas, the calamari and a tortilla. My partner ordered the chevre salad with magret slices (hot). There was a cidre and a glass of rose - an Extremadura .... all for less... More

Turned up late for a meal after a day travelling. They could not be more accommodating. The waitress was really patient and helpful in deciphering the menu for us. An excellent meal under the spectacular St Michel church tower. Well worth a visit for a meal and drink if you are in this quarter of Bordeaux.

Loved this place, went with no expectations, but if you want proper spanish food, this is it! we are spanish argentines and we loved this place, loved the creme brûlée (unique, please don't miss this!) and loved the tender calamaris , meatballs, ham and cheap wine! Great service and ambience. Loved it!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in one my favorite neighborhoods. What can I say, they are super friendly and down to earth here, the food is fresh and healthy, and the terrace rocks. In the winter the inside in nice too. This resto is not fancy, just simple and good. I have been to several Spanish restos in... More
