Rather disappointing. Lovely riverside setting on the main strip at Pauillac. We had 2 of the veal and sadly both were far too gristly to be edible. Another of us had pizza, but it had been made with French cheese rather the usual Italian and tasted quite bizarre. Waiters didn't enquire why we had eaten so little of the mains. Might be best to avoid the Formule or look closely at what other people have on their tables before ordering.

We were riding bicycles through the area and decided to stop in for lunch. For 11.50 euros each we got an entree - nice lentil soup and the plat du jour - risotto with fish, mussels and squid. Both were prepared well and decent portions. The waitress was friendly and tried to guide us with our broken French. After reading other reviews it looks like we got lucky. I think because it was lunch on a Tuesday in late September although it did fill up while we were there.

Visited with my son. We eat here twice during out stay.
Food was very good on both occasions and they served a trio of crime brûlée which was so good I ordered it both nights.
The wine list was reasonably priced and we tasted some fine bottles without breaking the bank - you can also buy wine to take away.

The restaurant are the best - and biggest in Pauillac. But manage to keep good service and good food even in rush hours on event days.
Good placement on the quai with view over the piers and Gironde.

Stopped here for lunch last week with another couple. Weather was scorching, and took a table nicely shaded overlooking the quai. The service was good, as was the food, my wife bless her wanted the Moules Frites, and she loved them ! Very reasonably priced meal for 4, and would recommend
